I have a 1998 corsa sport and it has an electric speedo with a solid state sender in the box. If your car runs a cable speedo you will have to swap the clocks over as the sender is solid state, if it is like mine (no gears on the diff, so the plastic speedo drive gear won't fit). You would be better to use the box you have on your own engine mate, should still be an F15 and will have cable drive. Some corsas have a mechanical drive on the gearbox and an electric sender driven off this. This is the sender I am using for my 2.0 conversion. If the F15 you are getting has this arrangement then the speedo cable will fit, but I am sure all the 16V sports use the solid state sender.

Only wiring would be the three wires to the sender. The colours are black brown and red/blue. These are (I think) black = ignition controlled live, brown = earth, blue/red = pulse signal to the clocks. I am assuming this because that is the normal VX colouring system, but you would be best to check the wiring diagram for the R to X reg corsas. Cant be too hard to wire though.
