Hi Karl, Jonathon on here (V8 Chevette) does a conversion, have a look in the parts for sale section.

Hi - if your a member then have a look at V8 Chevette's thread as he's fitted a 4HA in his car, plenty of photos on there showing the fabrication work needed . . . If your not a member then pay the 15 and have a look at the blogs and the other half of the forum that you can't see as a none member  . . .  Its a bargain and well worth it  ;)
