the main thing that would turn me off a nova conversion is they seem to be throw together.

for just a 2ltr conversion u have to weld up the engine bay to stremgthen it and stop it for leaving the rest of the car under power.

and the 2ltr just doesnt fit in u have to cut things.

on a corsa tehre none of this bullcrap. (well f28 depending)

have to fuck about with the bulk head for an f28 gearbox, after doing the one i'm driving at the moment i've learned it would be more ideal to cut the bulk head out and weld it back half a foot

not really, but i'd advise locating the bulk head back a bit, quite a tight fit in the corsa b, most people say 'it slots straight in no probs' its all bullshit

Its not hard really is it, you can find out how much a nova costs, how much wheels and suspension cost, so asking that is like asking how long a piece of string is.

A LET costs about a grand, strengthening depends if you can weld or where you take it, its not loads of work needed on the welding/strengthening front.
