vauxhall cavalier 1.8i engine project
hi there im starting a project on my cavalier, well i want to and i was
i have a vauxhall cavalier 1.8i 1995 SOHC,
would i be able to convert this to a DOHC or cant it be done and is it worth doing?
also im trying to think of engine modifications i could do to increase top speed, acceleration and BHP, any ideas would be a big help,
also i think if i do convert to a DOHC what would be the best racing type cams to put in? o was thinking of something from KENT CAMS but dont really know much about modding as i am only 17 atm
I do not think this is worth the hassle.
It would probably just be easier to just buy a Cavlier that already has the motor you want. At a minimum you would have to also swap out the computer and you may even need swap out the wiring harness or do a lot of modifications to the existing wiring.
It can be done quite easily, as DOHC engines were fitted to some Cavaliers as standard. However, as Corbett says, it's easier to just buy a DOHC model for a few hundred quid. I sense you want it as a project though, so buying another car would defeat tyhe object really, lol.
No, I don't think, this is worth doing. It is waste of type as well as money also.
