Corsa

1.6 16v engine/either a C16XE or X16XE.

BFO exhaust
Pipercross Viper
Inlet manifold

Totally stripped interior, no carpet,roof lining, door cards etc.
Just 2 buckets and a momo wheel.

Oh and some Pro Race 1 alloys, since their light.

This is the project me and my mate are lookin at, but not sure if its worth the cash for the power??

well nova gsi = 100bhp
corsa gsi = 109, but is heavyer so there about the same speed upto 70-80 then the gsi should be able to edge its self away due to having 16 valves

what is ur aim then? just 0-60 times or what

i dont think a bfo exhaust would help in the performance stakes, its far too big bore, the only corsa it would benefit is the turbo diesels.

Your probably right there!

Still good that a nova was quickest car of the day even if its 2.82 isn't exact.

As I said though, my car is quicker than the 6.2 I did.
