thinking of changing my engine to a 1.6 8v from a astra or nova gte/gsi
i have a 1.4 16v engine but think it's not going to last much longer top end is really tapping and smokey and wont run right , swaping the engine should be no probs just the wiring inside the car ie: ecu chip in the would have to be removed?

You need to take your engine out complete with it's wiring loom and ECU. You then just replace your engine, wiring loom and ECU with the equipment from a Nova... Your gearbox and driveshafts will be up to the job too so no need to worry about them. You could fit the engine with twin Webber 45's to get a bit more power, then all you need is an ignition system from a Nova with carbs....
