I wondered how long it would be.

Wasn't expecting it this soon though, that's only 3 months

bet it will shift too.

tbh, that is the only way of doing it with the VXR engine. COMPLETELY stripping the car and starting again.

Z16LEH would cost less than a Z20LEH
C16XE costs less than a C20XE

I mean to get the same output from a small block as a big block

cheaper to C20XE than get a X16XE to 155 bhp

cheaper to fit a LET than a corsa VXR engine

C20LET with an F28 would cost you about 1100, plus a conversion kit, that's another 500.

Z16LEH can use 2 standard mounts, standard shafts and is within 12bhp of the 20LET.

for the money for the vxr being compared with a let, the vxr will be more or less a brand new engine whereas the let will be tired and need rebuilt/freshinging

Agreed - not that I know much, but I know it'd be better investing in a newer engine.
