Is it to go in your Nova?

Have you thought about a 1.8 or 2.0 8v motor?

They are much cheaper to buy, and MUCH cheaper and easier to fit smile

I know 2 people who have done both conversions with relitive ease.

1 put a 1.8 in a Nova - kept up with VTS Saxos no problem, and was much quicker than any GTE or GSi - also the driveshafts (pretty sure) are the same (2.0 16v needs different shafts)

The other put a 2.0 8v in an Mk2 Astra Van - dead easy to wire up, driveshafts where the same - all it needed was an injection fuel tank and pump smile

If its a 1.2i you may be ok with the tank on the car (as long as it has a swirl pot for fuel pickup) and just need to change the pump to a higher flowing one off the car you get the engine from.

As far as I know, the 8v lumps sit on the same engine mounts at the Nova engines smile

There's a 2litre 16valve 'Redtop' in a Calibra and a 2litre 8valve in another Calibra at a place called Dixons on Cleveland Street in B'Head. They said 350 quid for just the block for the Redtop, so I'd say half that for the 8valve.
On top of that you'd need:

ECU
Wiring loom
Cone airfilter (no space)
Relay board for Fuel pump relay

I'd advise you change the gearbox though, the one in the Nova wouldn't last long, and the driveshafts have more splines, so you'll need two of them (I have two spare). The linkages are the same.

And if that weren't enough, you should get the engine bay seam welded, you'll start to notice little spaces in the bay if you don't. wink
I think that's it, but I'm nay sure about new engine mounts though.

I'll speak you on MSN when I'm not in crappy work.
