I've had this Opel sitting around in the garage for about 8 months now and i've decided (as long as money and the missus allows) to get rid of the 1600 engine and go for a v6 either 3.0 or 2.8 injection whatever i can find cheap enough.I am building this on a very very tight budget so over the next few months i shall be scouring ebay and this site more regularly than my bowel movements for anything i will need.
As this is gonna be my first car modification i have no idea what i need to do so i am hoping for some friendly advice no matter how stupid or obvious it might seem to you guys who have been building some great cars for years its all new to me so please bear with me.
First of all for some motivation im looking (once ive got the mechanical side of things sorted out)to weld up the back doors and give the car a gasser/hi rise look.So if anyone who can use photoshop could transform a picture of a ascona into the look im after that would be great.
Next question like i said the car currently is all 1600 running gear and i want v6. what i need to know is could i use a donor 2.8 capri and use the engine ,box and back axle .Or are there any other combinations i could use.
well thats it for now i hope some advice comes my way soon so i can start getting parts.
