Hey guys.

I'm Michael, I've a 2004 Corsa Lite Sport 1.4i. I've had my baby for about 2.5 years and I have decided that it is now time for modding.
It is waaaaaay too slow for me. The motor has 215000km on and the shitty golfs are starting to give me carrots. :oops:

I'd like to get an Astra engine, either the Z18XE or the 20XE-LN.
My problem is I don't know where to start, how much it'll cost, what other mods I'll have to do to the car to cope with the engine.

Will the engine mounts be in the correct place for these motors?
Will my gearbox, I think it is the F14, fit on the motor?
Aircon and power steering, will one of these have to go?
Will I have to drop my suspension?
Then the other things like fuel pump, battery, electronics, input needed there.

EVERYTHING on my Corsa is stock standard, except the fuel pump, which belongs in an Astra G (Was lying around at home when we serviced my car).

Any help will be greatly appreciated

C20XE motors are good. some would say hard to get parts and expensive. ecotec is the other option.. transmission would need to be changed as well and add a stand alone management. not tooo sure about engine mount, probably some fabrication would be invloved.

best place to start,, browse the forums, a good few corsa, 20l 16v conversions been done already(esp the capetown opel club forum)... and take it from there.. then the next bed would be to buy the engine.
