This is my first post as only owned my Corsa B for a month.
its a 1.6 16v in black.

Already done is the following:-

Rear strut brace,
Fully stripped inside bar dash and 2 front seats,
Bigger inlet manifold, Induction kit and Exhaust system - Rolling roaded at 130bhp.
Fully adjustable coil-overs,
De-badged front grill.

Tomorrow being saturday i am purchasing a C20XE complete engine and running gear to be fitted Sunday daytime.

i no this is not the sale page but will have up for grabs the following:-
1.6 16v Engine 130BHP proven, Gearbox, mounts, wiring, driveshafts and brakes.
Please make offers on the lot.javascript:icon('')

I will take photos of the car while stripping and fitted the engines.

The new engine is 185bhp proven as well but im looking for a few extra BHP - Any ideas??.

Future mods include -
Fibre glass Boot
Fibre glass Bonnet
Perspex windows all round bar windscreen (obviously)
Quickshift linkage
Full roll cage
Different wheels and tyres (ie Cav slab wheels if anyone got any for sale at a good price lol javascript:icon(''))

At the end of June im going to Germany to do the ring so i want this little baby as quick as poss.

Any feed back welcome

Cheers Dave

Looks cool in the new pictures! Not a fan of arden grill and smoked lights but with some back to black on those arches it should look very smart!

Keep the good work up matey.. Just please bin the grill though, will look very tidy then

As for the XE. If its not got TB's its not 185bhp. It wont be 185bhp even if you fit cams .

You got a current spec for that power?

130 bhp is fairly good,what`s been done to the engine or is that standard spec for a 1.6 16v.my x18xe1 is only 115 bhp as standard.
