I know a few peeps who'd done it with 130BHP 8v's and they've been as quick as a valver thru the box due to the better midrange grunt. Worth doing as engines much cheaper. My mate runs a 205 GTi with a Citroen ZX 1.9 from the GTi or whayever they have cos it's got more torque than the Pug 1.9 with his original 1.6 box. Only does about 120 but it's as fast as an Mi16 getting there!

Someones talking out their rectum.

8v unit is a good unit to put in the corsa. Require some of the 16v fitting kit, but its a good cheap engine with bags of low down torque. SRi 130 lump is rare to find. Thing is with the 8v, if it goes wrong, u can go down the scrappy and buy a whole new engine for 50 where-as the redtops are a lot more expensive and go wrong a lot more.

Still can be tuned with cam, head work, twin carbs etc to get good power. 16v unit is always the better engine as its one of the worlds best 2.0 16v engines, ever. But, you can always put an 8v in, have it for a while, then when u get bored, swap it out for the 16v (as i say, many of the fitting kit parts are the same).

For me, its my redtop every time, but for a cheaper budget coversion the 8v is a good lump. 0-60 wont be fantastic, prob high 7, low 8, but, it'll still rape any standard 1.6 16v Corsas.

Still the charmer what a stupid comment on how it would rape a standard 1.6 16v corsa, no shit sherlock puttin any type of 2lt into a corsa would beat a standard 1.6

Daimo B you nob Red top is one of the best engines vauxhall have knocked out far more tunable than 8V ever can be.


P.S you can pick C20XE (2ltr 16V) up for under 600quid in good nick

8v's are easier to fix, carbs are more responsive on throttle than injectors and quite easy to control air mixture. ok so the 8v's arent as fast as 16v's but you can get a good power figure if you know your stuff

drew off here had the 8v 2.0, got a vid of the clocks going up to sumin like 98mph ands its pretty rapid.

2.0 8v is a good engine, very tough, with 130 BHP on tap its not gonna be slow

In the nova camp there's not much difference in performance between a SEH and a XE, cause at the end of the day torque is what propels you down the road and with similar amounts of torque on tap they aren't much different.

Why say it? Simply becuase its the best engine that goes in a corsa B and i was using it as a comparison. And seeing as the 8v is 115bhp and the 1.6 16v is 109/106 its a good comparision.

Still the charmer? Like i give a flying fuck what a bunch of people who sit online all day talking about sh1te all day think of me

This is my point.

XE goes wrong = bigger bills.
Any of the 8v's go wron, just go buy another engine

Respond well if you know what mods to do. 160bhp can be got for less than getting a redtop to 180bhp.

Let get something right scotty boy.

If i disagree with someone, why the fuck should i back down just because some web people tell me?
Know it all? Not at all, i dont know hardly anything compared to a LOT of people, but then i know a lot compared to many people as well. Its jsut other make out everything i say is wrong. If i believe something to be right, why the hell should i change my opinion until proven otherwise???
High horse? No, i just dont take any shit or comments that i basically dont have to!
"Talking sh1t" as in a generalisation of the majority of people/posts on this site!!!

Basically, if i dont know the user, i couldn't give a flying fuck about them. If you dont/can't want to understand this, its your problem. Not mine.

End of the day, this is the internet and why the fuck would iu give a sh1t what anyone thinks. I speak to who i want to, make associates with those i want, and as for the rest, fuck em

Dont make me have an issue with you ecky, i've always thought you to be ok!!

Sibera, do i know you? More to the point, i've notice you becoming increasing interested in some of my posts/replies. Is there a reason?
