hi.. thought id share the progress.. been looking on here for a long time

its a bit of a time line from past months

this has been on the cards for a few weeks now just gathering bits really..

the car in question is another smoke grey corsa..

here is it as it lies atm down at Dee's house needs transported up and more importantly paid for

beside my daily hack



plan is for it to look similar to my daily hack as tbh i think it looks alright

here it is..



the v6 in question is from a car i bought a few weeks back of DeeGTE





tonight me and jack took in to getting it removed..

engine is now just on its mounts will be lifted out some stage tomorro



plug holes full of oil.. and oil soaked engine.. but im sure most of you know why





and read to be lifted..



thanks for looking.. more pics etc tomorro

today
bought large gearbox
bought and transported shel home
bought pannels to leave me with a clean shell..

maxwell doing some engineering at the calibra



then down to dees to get it rolling and take it up to mine





as you can see the front is rough as fuck needs bonnet and wings and a bumper

rest is 100%

well time is pressing on.. nights are opening up etc so its time to make a start..

unit is dried out etc...

so today on the blower to lon and got the car took from my drive up to the unit

two 2.0 corsas in grey on black sport wheels lol





the shell is in good shape.. front is now removed and scrapped..



cross member skebby but noting a bit of cleaning wont fix







corsa wheels dont quite cut the butter when it comes to the v6 discs



winchman himself



50mm OD stainless exhaust that came on the calibra... NICE shall be made to fit later



drilled discs that also came on the cali..





and the super touring wheels i got of jason19 a a few weeks back



and in ready for work





out of all the work im doing.. my only concern from the start was the radiator.. and i was right to be concerned.. as its fucking massive



will take some playing/ crossmember work to make it fit..

and one for jokes




cheers all

chassis leg were it was randomly painted.. shell is in great condition



and the flywheel? jesus fuck its massive



coouple of pics of the engine.. nothing a bit of cleaning wont fix







cheers all

next plan of attack is see if jackie will lend me his engine stand and strip the v6 and also strip the rest of the engine bay

then in it goes

today not alot was done as theres not much left before its fitting

adressed the exhaust problem. the rear exhaust is stainless so can be modded/welded easy enough

atm there are two plans

run the front manifold on the rear and rear on the front.. then mody the front

or just mod the rear and leave it at the rear

ideally plan 2 would work but if it failed it would be an enging out job to put right..

were the front manifold the downpipe flange is 20Deg of paralel to the crank were if i mod the other it will be square

heres a few pics..

rear as standered



front on the rear



the differences in them..



to clear the aux tentioner





then the differences in the cali and corsa alt/speedo/oil pressure loom..

cali,,



corsa



just a simple swap over

the clearance in the starter with the front manifold





ideally i want the fab'd rear one to sit like this.. only with the flange parallel to the crank just for a bit more ease..

thanks all

update time.. collected the f18 and thought id mock it up





random date.. im guessing its when it was made



then box on car moved over the beam and in it goes



clearance issues..





poke













inlet mods..

the inlet hits the top of the bulk head







exhaust clearance



no chance

front all bolts up as it should.. bit close to the x member but again.. no big deal





with the downpipes on and fitted you can see where it wants the rear branch to sit..





main exhaust.. sits well.. lambda may need moved but again.. no big deal




dipping for oil will be fun



the steadier bar..



all i will be using is the engine block and fab up a shell bracket and a we bar..

as its needed





and with the cover on





looks good

thanks all

gsi kitted cars look very old imo

today it started in to getting ready for the shell fabrication

had a bit of a read out







now its a matter of stripping the paint of.. and ill take the easy approach to that rather then grind it...

give this stuff a go



and it just bubbeled and took all the paint that dee threw at the car off.. the rest might need someting stronger

as you can see the engine bay is a while state









paint stripper at work





then the bumper.. clearance for the v6 radiator.. it will need cut down in to the cross member





also threw the cover over jackies rallye as he is a right huffy bastard





more tomorro when the grinder comes out

today set about the first of the shell preperation

stripped out alot of shite..

cabin filter probs never been changed






then the brake lines.. a corsa has 2 leaving the master cylinder to a another block then that feeds each corner..

im running a bais valve and rear discs so i will be using a single line..







all for the scrap pile



battery tray also needs to go


cut out









drop of sc3n3 paint to seal it up again





then the revised radiator.. no change in hell



as jason suggested a 15td raditor i have one spare and tbh its not alot smaller than the v6 one so it makes sense

how it was left today
