Strange but I need some info of a Nova driver regarding the length of the side skirts that they use, as I have found some nice skirts designed for a nova and wnat to see if they will fit my phase 1 16v!
Fair play to you mate, I was once one of the Nova boys!!! Long long ago before I saw the light!! Good luck with the conversion mate, it has been done a few times hasnt it? What engine are you using for the conversion?
We are looking at getting 2.0 l 16v from the cavalier cos the insurance group on that is only 14 as opposed to the same engine out the calibra thats a group 17. Looking to pick one up from ashford motor spares for about 250 once we have sourced a good shell to do the conversion on. And then buy the strengthening plates, do a bit of welding, and upgrade the fuel tank and radiators, driveshafts etc Plus whats also clearly needed is the cavalier gsi brake conversion, fortunately my mate already has that on his nova atm so its just a case of swapping them over when we break that nova. Fingers crossed for todays little excursion
Jilly - Ughhhh a nova diamond with a big bore exhaust, go and sit in the corner and think about what youve done
instead of a cav lump, try and get hold a decent astra 16v lump. good for over 200BHP (non-turbod) is possible to see them revving to over 9k too.
Or you could try and squeeze a V6 lump - seen it done and its mental as fcuk!
