Is it hard work putting a C/X16XE/X14XE into a Nova?

My mate crashed his Corsa and found a clean Nova shell so is wanting to put the Corsa engine into the Nova. I think it'll be harder to get working than he thinks

Not hard at all matey... they go in on the same mounts.

just wiring and thats pretty much it

C16xe is the better choice as you havent gotta piss about with the transponder and key barrel
