Vauxhall Astra Donor

Post by JeffD » 06 Aug 2019, 18:57

Have any of our European builders used the Vauxhall Astra as a donor?

Specifically, the X18XE1 or Z18XE engines?

I'm considering this route now, as I can get a 2001-2004 model with the 92kw Z18XE for $600 or less here in Oz. It's not exactly a powerhouse, but I know the 2.2 SRi Turbo motor would be almost a drop in upgrade later. As a budget option, it would still be a tonne of fun at Midlana's weight.
