    Default 1.9 cdti Engine change

    Had a problem with my car a few months back where the engine and turbo decided to pack up on me at 145000 ...1.9 cdti 8 v Z19dt.

    Anyways cut a long story short im after an engine with turbo and was wondering is it a straight swap over minus the bits like alternator starter etc etc does the old engine have to be tech 2 before removing as ive heard stories of these vauxhall dont like other lumps in them if anyone can advise me of what the situation is before i do go ahead and buy one will i need the ecu from the donor car aswell as the engine??
    ive been quoted 200.00 one garage 250.00 by another and 300 from another for the change over.

    Ive been looking at some engines on ebay and the WWW salvage sites there quite expensive aswell, I know theres some trade members here wondering if you can help out with a lump and turbo aswell thanks.

    Is it the full engne or the short engine?
    I don't see why a change of ECU would be necessary, but it may need reprogamming on completion, and so swapping them complete may be quicker
