How much would it cost for you to supply and fit an XE 2litre 16v? I already have the suspension and brakes.

Also how long does the fitting process take?

How much notice do you require prior to fitting?

Basically my 1.4 16v is knackered so i'm looking into upgrading to a 2 litre if it works out too much money to sort the 1.4 16v.

u2u me if you like

Thanks,
Nath

Surely the answers would vary depending on the availability of engines at that time?

What does the 1500 include? I assume i just turn up with the money and then leave him to it?

Gotta see whats wrong with my 14XE first before i do anything.

as much as i would want a turbo an XE is more than enough. Might not even need an XE if mine doesnt cost too much to fix.

yeah well dont m,ake the mistake i did, i decided to swap me engine i had a fooked C16XE so put a good C16XE in, it turned out to be a bad engine, instead of biting the bullet and chucking a C20XE in i decided to fix the engine i had, trust me the C20XE would have been about the same price as fixing mine, i have a few regrets

Yeh thats why i may not bother fixing my 14XE and just stick a C20XE in instead. Its all down to how much mine is going to cost to fix.

Oh yeh and insurance

Ive looked around at doing this

Griffin Performance near Birmingham charge 1400/1500 drive-in/out. They use your existing driveshafts+C.V's though and you'll have to supply them with a power cap (100)

Ace Vauxhall Parts in Stoke on Trent ( http://acevauxhallparts.co.uk )wanted to charge me approx 900 to supply and fit redtop lump with F20 box, loom, ecu and Astra/Cav CV joints. I would have to supply them with a conversion kit (580 from cossvaux with the extra bodywork mount) and they would want a set of wheel bearings (80 RRP from Vaux).

I thought Griffin but for the same price ACE will use stronger Driveshafts from the fitting kit AND stronger 2.0l C.V's, the ONLY downer being its a breakers yard but if anywhere knows about vauxhalls it would be a vauxhall only breakers yard and PLENTY of stock for them to use

Also the fact that the guy at ACE sat down and talked to me over the phone for a good 20mins talking through the operation wheras the guy at Griffin didnt want to tell me anything and wanted me off his phoneline ASAP!

I say ACE but take the car in with seat covers and perhaps some protective sticky sheet over the wings etc
