bought this for 950 from near chester
1.4 sri 16v



destined for a 2litre engine i was going to opt for an XE, but as it was only a project car i thought i'd go for the C20LET turbo
so i saw this on ebay and was the winning bidder on it(this was from saltney chester)

so i took the turbo out the astravan


and proceeded to take the 1.4 sri engine out of the corsa


theres that beloved engine trolley skateboard thing


made some mounts up and then got hold of these
the mounts fitted

the engine in place


the farking wiring was a bitch though look at this lot




engine finished and runnin lovely, was overfueling at first due to being stood for a while, lots of black smoke but after 5mins was all good

only thing is i wish i'd never stuck a psg2wide kit on it but its a bit late for that now

all constructive criticism and opinions welcome

There is something amiss with that Corsa.

If its a 1.4 16v why the hell has it got the old 1.4 Si badges on the back?

This normally indicates that the car has a 1.4 8v MPi engine

There's nothing worse than cleaning cars - the fiddly bits have no chance
