Vauxhall Corsa B 1.0 12v 1997 (bhp)=55 (0-60)=16



Vauxhall Corsa B 1.2 8v 1993 (bhp)=45 (0-60)=17.4




is this true corsa 1.0 is faster than the 1.2 but the 1.0 has only 3 cylinders

I'd go for the 1.2, feels more torquey to drive.

My car started life as this:

Vauxhall Corsa B 1.2 8v 1993 (bhp)=45 (0-60)=17.4

So far I've managed to knock 12.02 seconds off the 0-60 and have over 6.5 times the power LOL

Well the bhp does prove it

1.2 8v being 45 and the 1.0 12v being 54.

Also the 1.0 12v is the Ecotec engine and the 1.2 8V is the nova engine

on paper, the 1.0 is faster than the 1.2, isn't it?
but at end of the day, its gay to compare them because they are both shit.
