Re: Conversion Engined Syncro's
looks great, are you running the opel management as well?

BTW the power steering fluid looks low.

I may be a mechanic, but i can't fix stupid
Bad planning on your part does not make your issue an crisis to me
Bad workmanship by other garages does not entiltle you to better rates at me
Syncro, syncro , syncro and more syncro, this is the syncro way of life

Re: Conversion Engined Syncro's
You're very sharp Stuart! Also noticed it and almost topped it up before the photo! I'm running standard management. Bosch Motronic. That's the nice thing with this conversion. Straight out of a Kadett or Astra and into the bus. No rechipping or new wiring harnesses. The standard management is very reliable and not prone to some of the issues the Golf Digifant suffered with. It even uses the original 2.1 cross member. Only issue is it's not as easy or cheap to source compared to the Golf. Also it's slightly longer than the Golf motor.

Re: Conversion Engined Syncro's
Some people wanted some pics of conversions, here is my 3.2 WBX 6 Oettinger. In contrast to Ian's Opel, which is so neat and clean, no matter what I do mine looks a mess. I think mainly because it fills every inch of the engine bay!

Re: Conversion Engined Syncro's
In your case it's what's under the mess that counts!

Re: Conversion Engined Syncro's
WOW Ian!

it looks great,you're humble.

I never heard of these conversions before,what did you do for flywheel,clutch,input shaft and bellhousing?

I looks like it could also fit right under the engine cover if we want to Idea

I love it!! It looks like there is a lot of room for fixing stuff on the side of the road,that's what I look first on a conversion :mrgreen:

Congratulations,and tell us more (how you got the idea/you choose that engine etc...)

thanks 8-)
