Xe Setup

Recommended Posts


Let me check tomorrow, but I have an engine (will need strip and check/rebuild, even though a good runner when taken out the Astra Mk2 GTE 16V has been sat for a number of years) and think I have the following:

1800 Sump (Secondhand), with pickup pipe and dipstick

7 Degree inlet manifold (NOS)

7 degree type 9 bellhousing (with bolts) (NOS)

XE chassis mounting kit (NOS) or Manta 1800 mounts.

Engine mount bobbins (38 mm thickness)

jenvey throttle bodies (Secondhand)

Can supply new Ashley 4-2-1 Manifold if required.

Once I know what I have got I will put a price on it.
