Well i bought this nova last month as a rolling shell with the intention of taking the c20let from my corsa and putting it into the nova.

anyways some pics and more updates hopefully starting tonight

these were from the previous owner before i go the car:



how it sat in my garage before work commenced


and work had begun




i didnt get any pics of the engine coming from the corsa to the nova mainly because i couldnt be assed.

will get some of the corsa looking sorry for itself though.

I have also fitted my wideband now aswell

just need to get the rad(tonight) and then finish the boost pipes and get another intercooler
