Suggest you do a lot more research.

We don't know how mechanically competent you are but it's a big job to swap an engine, and expensive to pay for someone else to do it.

Chances are you can't do it for sensible money (IE under 5k) unless you're an experienced tech, but if you were you'd know what was involved, so forget it.

Cheapest option would be to buy a 16v turbo Calibra if you want a faster one.

You havent got a hope in hell of doing that, you are wasting your time, the cost would be thousands, and thats to someone with great expertise of vauxhalls
