Not sure, but I'd prefer the nova. Sound pretty cool.

it'll be no more than 150, with them mod's on a 1.6 8v...

nova will probably just edge it, as they are quite a fair bit lighter than corsa's

Nova will be on about 130bhp, depends if he has cams and if the rev limit has been increased.
The c16se engines are amazing can get 150bhp on the standard TB and inlet.

I think the nova will win, it's lighter and has more mods.

when you say without spemding a lot of money, how much we talking? As a xe with ported head and cams should be pritty lively if you can streach to that and a lightened flywheel and raised rev limit should see you beat the nova comfortably

I'd say so. All he needs is a new car smell air freshener to crack 200bhp.

Oh im sorry i assumed it was an x16xe engine! And yes 190bhp is a guess but i know a nova with an x16xe with all the above quoted stuff on thats putting out 190 bhp proven.Believe his name is DHdev or oli?

And also why be a cunt when someone replies and might be wrong? We cant all be car gods with well nice corsas can we..

Thats a very high figure tbh,thats near twice standard power. I don't think a xe would be 190bhp with those mods.
