3rd time writing this now hope it works,

with the corsa b having to much power that its useless on the road ive been wanting to build a z20let c for a few years , when one poped up localy for 650 i had to have it , plan is 300bhp to keep it usable and a nice cheap car to use as a daily, how i got it













drove it arround for a week and stuck the engine and wheels on ebay and got 650 back for them so free corsa c

engine removed and cleaned




the car was looking pink so got a mate to polish it but wanted the trims going black so took them all of











after polishing , the front wing is a slightly diffrent colour but i will get that sorted at a later date















used some comps that i had planed to put on the corsa b





second hand new mounts



wheels on







trim back



and fitted



and cleaned









diff colour wing



new cables and gear stick





fitted


how i wanted the wheels to sit but it wasent possable



new conversion hubs with new bearings



new lower arms, tres and droplinks





on the lowest settings











new gauges



bought a pod but it looked crap



so thought fook it









sprayed the backs of the gauges so they blend in



wires



took it for tints









bought a coupe turbo for the parts i needed sold the rest and got my bits for free





new cam belt and water pump



got the engine sat in bay to make rear spacer and front mount











corsa vs astra pump



new parts
















engine ready to go back in for the last time

V

painted cover









did wiring thanks to a waren g wiring guide





then moved out my unit so it got parked up for a bit while i got more parts , spoke to company near me who swaped my turbo for a vxr one and a cash deal





























vxr injectors














took it to my mates garage and fitted it all,

corsa 1.8 brakes

















second start up just on the down pipe and no map pipe

took it for a cheap exhaust to be made, stealth ftw






nice and low





new map pipe



new head unit











ecu back from waren for the fan mod

took it out for about 20 miles yesterday and i killed the alt some how, what a twat getting it of was, recon one got thismorniung and sorted





and this is how it stands atm, i raised the front up a bit , rear needs doing tomorow


























got a few probs to sort out, fan aint working think i must of wired it in wrong and getting these codes anyone help with them



future plans are sort these out and get it mapped, ive got a whiteline arb on my corsa b thats coming on this, need a irmischer grill straight away as hate the standard grill, half leather, some sort of spoiler, uprated clutch and a quaife and just use it day to day , it only ows me about 1000 ish which aint bad

comments please

Gotta laugh how you say it's just a daily run about lol. Most folks would love this as a main car for shows and track. Looks near standard which is what I love about it.

Awesome!! Another great build Ben

Fair play for using it as a daily, will be quick enough with 300 brake and then when you get in the B at the weekends it will feel slow lol

Fairplay I was wondering when you would post it up.

I've got most of my parts now, I just need a car.

How are you getting on with the intercooler kit? because it looks like the solid 90's will either leak, or pop off. When I've mocked up my kit.
