    Default Carlton c20ne engine

    I've been offered a cheap c20ne out of a carlton will it fit a nova with it being out of the carlton? Any difference between the c20ne out of a mk2 astra gte 8v and this? It should have the fwd mount holes in the block ect.

    I've heard the sump is different dont know how true this is? Also I have noticed the dipstick tubes are different it has the breather metal pipe on it's own and the dipstick is near the cambelt side.
