  1. The foglight lense pattern not being parallel to the rear bumper/ground would really get to me !!!! That's the way to sell a car - loads and loads of pics. However nothing from underneath, and lots of orange peel in the paintwork so I do wonder if its had a fresh paint within a couple of years and stuff is already starting to come through. Looks lovely.
  2. Am i right in saying that the vectra B plenums are the way i need to go? Its all new to me this vauxhall stuff. Every day's a school day!
  3. Well........this has moved on a bit............only a little bit......but that lump is under 100k and sweeeeet, has a manual box in there too albeit the omega one as far as i know. Will need to source the vectra b plenum and look into it all, but for now, progress is progress. Probably should start thinking about some welding......

  5. wasnt exactly suble lol
  6. Of course, no point in more than one of us going insane and running out of tears 😆
  7. I think I have a contact regarding the megasquirt actually. Its all new to me! I had an engine and manual box lined up, drive car home jobby so I would be happy, all was not how it seems however so I may well go with the omega engine thats in a vectra b with vectra induction setup instead. I can source a steel sump/flywheel etc off a scrapper locally.
  8. Out of interest what sort of £££ did the ecu and loom set you back? Appreciate there are mapping/rr costs after of course
  9. thats the box that I have lined up for it, a 240
  10. agreed about the straight six but its a massively heavy lump at the front - one of the things that attracted me to the v6 was how compact it is (could have a party between it and a radiator lol)
  11. Bit of a thread resurrection here - I am in the early stages of sourcing bits to convert a GTE to a v6. Likely donor is either an Omega 3 litre with a manual box, or a vectra with an Omega 3 litre installed (been offered both). I have a getrag 240 gearbox lined up irrespective of which engine so I have options. Do not want to go down the bonnet bulge route. What would you guys say is the better option? I will be nabbing loom/ecu/keys etc however want to retain a fair degree of individuality in the cockpit hence not considering the 3.2 which needs dash to run I believe. I can consider standalone ecu, also dry sump - very open to ideas, albeit the easier the better!!!!!! Thanks guys
  12. I've got a non-sunroof one to go on but thanks Danny
