    Thanks for your response, I have done many other engine swaps and hot rod builds in the years past. I am trying to get a feel for the engine(SIZE MATTERS) and its potential. I have a feel it's to tall and making it run without major wiring issues is my challenge.

    Dang hard to find an Opel GT these days. I looked for one in the 90's and had no luck. The plan was to put a 231 V6 in, but after I saw one up close there was no way. The dream died there.

    Ever put any thought into a Quad 4 2.3L? They are OBD1 so there is less to control. They put down a good amount of power. More than a N/A Eco. The W41 was 185hp, if you get the right year. The problem is finding one or even just the cams and head.

    It can be done, I put a sbc 400 in an Opel GT without much modifying. The best fit is a 3.4L V6 60 deg. But I want to try the ecotec.

    My Sky redline 2.0L is 265 HP from the factory, but I think the turbo creates more issues. I wish made a wire harness for ecotec aftrermarket.

    Welcome to the forum. There are a couple of members on here with Ecotec experience that can make you a custom wiring harness. I don't recall their usernames off the top of my head, but if you search around in similar topics, they'll pop up.

    Nothing is difficult; some things just take more time.

    Wow I thought that all SBC swaps had tube frames.
