Quite a lot as everything is different. Not like a B converison, although a Redtop has been dropped into a C in Europe.

B prepared to get lots of out.

Not quite as simple as u might think! corsa c uses a data bus to transfer data via the body control module to the engine and instrumentation - although the corsa c uses drive by wire instead of accelarator cable, it would be possible to remove throttle pot pedal and install cable operated pedal - would have to use gearbox/driveshafts/hubs from corsa c z18ex1 engine (sri) which woud mate to c20xe or c20let engine -

PVD do indeed do a kit. It's a lot of cash and there's many parts needed to convert the Corsa C from drive-by-wire.

It's a good car for the conversion as it's a much stronger car than the B.

How would a V6 fair in a corsa C driveability wise?
Would the chassis handle it better than the corsa B?


Does tyhe corsa C have equal length drive shafts?


Is the track of the corsa C the same as the B?

Anything is possible - although v6 would handle same as v6 nova/corsa - too much weight infront of drive train - drive shafts different lengths and wider than corsa b

Fearless - I know of a guy in Germany who fitted a Z20LET into an Astra F. The engine went in alright in a few days and he spent 6 months on the wiring!

Due to the sensors, etc. it was a nightmare to wire up, and when it was it wouldn't run as you actually need to fit the traction control from the Astra G and wire that in to the loom for the engine to even start!

Anything is possible as you say, but whether it's worth it or not is another thing!

Ainsley - the V6 would prob be better in a C than a B just as it's a stronger car, although the weight distribution would still be far from ideal. The shafts, track, and pretty much everything else on the Corsa C is different from the B.
