    Vauxhall v6 engine

    Another engine choice. Still would prefer a v6 in the prefect, so looking around I spotted a Vauxhall omega v6 and box, has any one had any experience with this engine ?, and has any one got dimensions for the engine, if all fails there’s always the Zetec that will fit my c3 auto box, thanks ...

    they have an oil cooler in the 'v' that fails and fills the sump with water, not good. other than that they are small and pretty good. i'd say fit a new cooler before installing the motor as insurance. neil.
    need a job done on your project? i may be able to help.

    After some research I’ve found out that it’s fly by wire throttle and the auto gearbox has its own Ecu, so getting more complicated the deeper I look, but all the info I’ve found say it’s more or less the same size as the Essex V6 so should fit in ,just waiting on a seller to measure up,even looked at a manual gearbox but then I’m into clutch pedal and cylinder which I’d have to alter the floor and bulk head, so maybe a nonstarter, choices choices........

    Just had another thought, could I fit my c3 auto box onto the omega auto bell housing?, they look alike and maybe just need red rolling to suit, any thoughts on this idea, cheers........

    The earlier versions weren’t fly by wire so that could be an option.
    Make sure you change the cam belt and tensioners and make sure they’re good quality, these engines seem to eat them more so than normal belt engines and then it’s scrap.
    The 3.0 is a good quad cam engine and surprisingly compact but becoming quite rare.

    Is the C3 a Ford BH fitment ?

    Do the Ford alloy V6's use the same BH pattern ? Mondeo etc ?
