Easy, engine, loom, ECU, you can use original hubs and driveshafts and engine mounts.

So easy.

No, No & No.

SPi fuel tank and pump is fine to use.

Don't need to worry about engine mounts, just use the original ones in the car.

u wont need a "kit" as u are going to be putting all VAUX bits in off a standard corsa

i worked it out that 500 would do it nice for me, i already have upgraded suspention and brakes tho

anti roll bars etc might also be food for thought, and ABS and PAS also (both i wouldnt need/want)

my mate had an engine in his car, and he "borrowed" an ecu off a mate, and took the chips etc with it, he sold the car with his ecu in and now can not get his engine to start, he eventually had to take it out and swaped his 1.4 16v for a 1.6 gte engine
