first off lookin nice motor mate very nice in deed.when i bought my motor it came from a garage bit worse for were on steelo's already slammed lookin badly straight away.Engine management light on exhaust incorrectly fitted resultin in blowin and rattlin and someone had butcherd the subframe were the wishbone bolts on.2 engine mount bolts snapped into box ready 4 graveyard sort of thing.I had a mark2 gte but insurance well high so i bought a escort and traded it to take it cheap.It looked a once cherished car and so i fixed it up all the spec i put is what i know so if someone else lowered it whats to say they dint chip it.I dint beleive myself to start off with so checked speedo with my mates car (cavalier calibre 2.016v red top out of f plate gte)all okay had quick gander under bonnet.Not at brain yet the only things that r different is some ecotecs have a little canister comin off the exhaust manifold and mine dont something todo with exhaust gases i think. Then some have a plastic rocker cover and some have a metal one so not sure if theres a difference in head.Mine got metal, Engine mint though thats why ive still got it my mate with the cav reckons its as quick as his im not sure but my other mate calls it an extra ordenery astra.I like it ithink its cool bit borin to look at but im not loaded have got 2 kids so i need a five door in reality and it drives like a jessy my cousan as got a gsi with calibra turbo under bonnet nice motor.Another freinds got a gsi 1.816v rescued from graveyard ill send some pics soon.
Speak again soon i hope,be interestin to ear about your motor.Be interestin to see your example of what the mk3 should have looked like when it left vauxhall.

my mates cav got 17's now though if you like your vauxhalls im sure you would aprecciate.
