Please can you let me have some information regarding the fitment of a 2L Astra GTE 16v XE engine into my Nova.
Our suggestion would be to consider using the 1.6L 16V Corsa engine, rather than going for the 2.0L 16V. The 1600 engine drops straight into a Nova and the power to weight ratio is very good and it is an extremely tuneable engine. The 2.0L engine is large and heavy in comparison and often creates problems because the Nova becomes front end heavy. There is also a problem with being able to put the extra power down.
