Evening peeps, not been on for near on 9 years so thought i'd say hi again lol

bought myself a bargain mk3 (£210) in the summer just to tide me over after the cam chain snapped in my corsavan, it didn't miss a beat but wasn't ideal for commuting to and fro work. replaced it with a mk5 astra 1.3 cdti and was going to break the mk3, 4 months later its still on the drive minus its engine and I have decided its time for another project ;)

so now I find myself looking for parts and advise again as I have the bug to tinker with cars again

ill get a build diary up asap once I can get pics to host

Hey, welcome back! That is a heck of a long time away. The mk3 always manages to work its way back into your life somewhere :lol:

Interested to know what your plans are.

never been away from Vauxhall, just not had a mk3 since 2010, I forgot about imgur, just tried photobucket again and its still as slow as always

plans wise it was a x16xel but im going down the z20let route , I know its harder but I don't wanna b204 it as its been done to death now

Photobucket went downhill massively after they made all the linked images from free accounts shop working.. They're working again now but with a big watermark on them.

Not many ZLETs in mk3's, many people say there going to do it but it never materialises :laugh1: yeah b204 is very common, there was only a handful when I did mine a few years ago. But both are awesome engines and a lot of fun in a mk3!

not sure why the z20let wasn't done much, alright its a bit more involved with pedal swaps etc but the info is out there if peeps look hard enough. mate of mine has a mk4 sri turbo that he was doing up but got another sri turbo cheap that's been fitted with a c20let and better bodywork, so the 1st one is being broken, just waiting on some other parts then ill start it all
