x14 xe and x16 xe are near enough the same engine so pics of both will help you. Btw a wee tip, when insuring the dont tell them its from an sri, say its from some 5 door breeze or something as sri will be a slightly higher insurance group than a 5 door breeze or something which comes with the same engine. Coz remember the insurance group will be the same as the donor car;)

The parts should be interchangable as far as I know. The Astra mounts on my C16SE where all taken off and I transplanted the mountings from my C14SE straight onto it. I changed the bottom pulley, the alternator but removed the PAS pump and centre pulley since my car didn't have PAS and was the v-belt type, not the grooved which came with the new engine.

I could be wrong, but tbh I can't see them being drastically different.

Don't they just go on the engine number Mark?
When I insured my old 1.2 with a 1.6 engine in, they didn't ask what the donor car was. They just insured it as a 1.6 16v :confused: .

They will know what car the engine came from by the engine number so no, telling them it came from a Breeze not a sports model won't make a blind bit of difference.

A guess would be it is. As you know on a vehicle registration document, it contains both the chassis number and engine number which is specific to that car. The car will be of a certain model, and no doubt it will be logged on a database somewhere.

This is a complete guess though so don't quote me on it.

but then how does this work if you replace parts of your engine or infact your whole engine with the same standard parts except from a different car? Like say a conrod went through the block and you changed that. Thats not something you would tell the insurance about is it?

And whats the script aswell if you buy a brand new engine from vaux?

Internal's is a different matter I suppose but as for changing the actual block, I'm guessing the same rules apply, you'd have to fill in the new engine numbers on the v5 and send it off.
