Engine is from my 1996 mk3 Astra and has 114k miles on it. It's had a full rebuild by myself using mostly genuine Vauxhall parts. At this point I will point out that after the rebuild, the engine ran but smoked on over-run. I thought it was stem seals but they were replaced with a set of GM stem seals and it wasn't much better, so I suspect it needs another set of rings in it. However at this point I gave up on it as the opportunity arose for a Saab turbo conversion instead.

I'll try and list all the things done to the engine, although this was all done over the period of 2 years so I may forget some bits. I spent an awful lot of time on this engine, and probably even more money! It's covered 30 miles at the most since the rebuild and was driven very carefully through that time. Apart from the smoke the engine rany beautifully.

-Engine block completely stripped down, cleaned and painted black


-Engine internals degreased
-New main bearings and bolts, big end bearings and piston rings
-Brand new GM thermostat
-New aux belt tensioner + pulley
-Brand new GM oil pump


-ARP rod bolts

-Cylinder head fully degreased, 16 new valve guides fitted, light skim, valve seats re-cut and lapped in and very mild port to match the gasket, plus tappets fully stripped and cleaned


-Engine built up with GM + Autovaux sourced gaskets top to bottom, new water pump, GM timing belt kit


-Rocker cover powder coated black and stainless bolts
-X16XE lower inlet (powdercoated), OPD powerbox


-Stainless 4-1 manifold with new lambda sensor
-8v flat flywheel skimmed

I think that covers most of it, I'm sure there's more though. This is the best pic I have of the full engine:


Engine will come complete with , ECU and chip, the wiring loom is no longer available. The engine mount and aircon pump are not included either. Alternator and injector wiring loom is included though.

As said earlier this engine owes me a LOT of money, I has plans to run it on throttle bodies as a long term engine but unfortunately plans changed when I needed the car on the road sooner.

I'm going to ask for 350 for it all, this is collection only from the Peterborough area and I'm open to sensible offers as it's in the way now really. I'm sure it will make a fantastic engine for someone who has the time and patience to put a set of rings in it!

Hey mate, did you sell the engine?

I wrote you a PM a while back, still interested if the engine hasn't been sold and you're willing to reconsider.

Cheers!

A X16XE runs 105bhp standard, other than the fact the engine will be lot stronger what will be the power gain with the uprated parts mate?

I wouldn't like to say for sure. But many people have rolled 120BHP with just the intake changed, plus makes them a lot more responsive.

Any idea on the rough costs just for the parts to sort the smoking issue?

A new set of rings should sort it out, I can't in any way guarantee that though. I believe a set of rings are about 80 or something like that. It was a while back now!
