Depends what engine you are thinking of...

Personally had considered a Z20 lump from an '02/3 Zafira GSi... Wiring ought to be near enough to be able to plug it into the Omega chassis loom for instruments... Any extra wiring would be on the engine loom which you would presumably fit with the engine and ecu...

The complicated bit was done at the factory... Even fitting a V8 only required a handful of connections to be made.

Hardest part would be the intercooler plumbing.

Of course, if you want to fit a C20LET then you're adding extra work re throttle gubbins etc...

Thinking about a smaller lighter engine more free reving and more power and torque  than v6 and much more tuneable for more power.

I would like to go the opposite route. A 3.0 v6 in a Chevette shell .Its been done before, but the hardest part would be finding the shell to put the  running gear in.
