Right well i have yet another corsa. My 3rd one in total. Swapped the Vectra for it. Its a nice cheap run around till i decide what i am going to do and till work pull there finger out their arse and make me permanent.

So its a 1.2 16v SXi. 65000 on the clock and its S-reg. quality condition for the reg. Not many picys as i only got it last night. Will take some over the weekend. Here is a few for now






and the best bit my insurance drops by 280.

Comments welcome

lighter than a red-top engine, newer and more reliable, stock 123 bhp not sure on torque...

my sri pulls better than my 1.6 corsa with the lexmaul and other bits, and my corsa b was alot lighter too

the 1.8 feels really responsive, its not power crazy but alot more responsive than most over vaux engines

stock 1.8 is 123 bhp

add cams, manifold, inlet, decent stystem and get it mapped and you will see about 160 + with no internals

add that to a sub 800kg corsa yeesh vert good
