  1. Hello. I’ve done some searching and I can’t find the answer I’m looking for. I have a X20XEV bottom end going into my Mk1 cavalier. It’s a 6 bolt flat flywheel. The gearbox is the Getrag from the 1.8 Manta. What clutch set up can I use? Found loads of info on the C20XE but nothing for an X20XEV with a flat 6 bolt flywheel.
  2. Looking for a boot lock with key that will fit a Mk1 cavalier
  3. I’m after a passenger side Sun Visor and the fittings for a Mk1 Cav. As pictured mine suffers from the flop. Ryan
  4. Yes I’m planning on using throttle bodies. OMEX make a mappable bolt on kit which I’m considering. have you by any chance got a link to the correct GM oil for the getrag 240?
  5. Wow! Thank you so much for this information, extremely helpful. I think I’ll just stick with the 240 that I have then as I’m not going silly power. If it does break then luckily they seem to be quite readily available and cheap too. I’m not building a race car (already got a clio track car) just something that’s good fun on the weekend without chopping the car up too much. Thanks again I appreciate it
  6. As for my first question. I have a GETRAG 240 gearbox from a Manta ready to be bolted up to a C20XE as I know it’s a relatively simple conversion. However I’ve read some horror stories that that gearbox is not very good and can’t handle an XE (I plan on taking the engine to around 180bhp) Is there any truth to this or is there another gearbox that can be used which is just as simple that is reliable? I searched the forum and discovered the omega box but it’s HUGE! I do not want to use a type 9 and I don’t fancy cutting much tunnel up if I don’t have to. cheers
  7. I’m a bit of a technophobe and I can’t work out how to upload pictures but I am trying Hopefully you can see the picture. I’m terrible with computers.
  8. Thanks for the reply, it’s a 1976 so one of the very first ones,
  9. Hello. I have just upgraded the suspension on my mk1 cavalier and I have noticed the rear wheels (15x7 minilites) will need spacing out slightly, around 10mm to sit flush with the fronts. Can anyone tell me the length of the standard wheel studs as I am going to need extended ones to do this, to make sure the wheel nuts are secured safely, unless there is an alternative suggestion? Cheers, Ryan
  10. Hello everyone. Decided to join as a lot of the info I have used so far on my project has come from here so be rude not to. I am sure I will be asking lots of questions in the future. Lots of pics going up on my insta too @ryanwakely89 Cheers
