I don't know about a full carbon Corsa in three weeks but certain parts maybe ha ha.

I still haven't had a chance to get the centre consoles flocked yet! I still have the first one in the car and yes it does fit a large coke in from the golden M lol

Now changed plans with this one, I'm keeping the diesel C as a work bus so I've been out and picked this one up instead.

Little 1.2 was never going to cut it so this weekends job was remove the old engine and box




Put up a bit of a fight and decided to bite my misses finger but its now out.



Just waiting on the postman to bring me some new parts to build the replacement engine and then try and get it in, might use an engine lift for the next one though ha ha

Hit a bit of a brick wall this morning with trying to source engine mountings etc

The parts that came this week had pieces missing!!

So I fitted this astra cable shifter direct replacement for the corsa original.



Then I've just been offered another c let project practically completed so I'm stuck in the situation of possibly having 3 Corsa C turbos lol

The parts that were missing was the oil pickup pipe from the delete kit!!

Just sorting out which mounts I need, but then another high spec c has just come up for sale so I'm off to see that one in the morning lol

Just ordered a lightweight billet flywheel and uprated clutch for this engine so hopefully that turns up soon so I can at least make a start on finishing one project ha ha

Small update.

I now own another silver Corsa C and yet another z20let engine lol

I'll either be building 2 or putting one back to standard and selling one on or selling it in bits.

More pictures will be added once I've been round and picked the next one up, bit more of an impressive spec with spax coilovers, rear disc beam, brand new 308mm discs/calipers, full stainless turbo exhaust, stainless top hat, irmsher parts everywhere, billet flywheel, 4 plate paddle clutch, Sri wheels, recaro seats etc etc

Due to there being a lot of rubbish being posted about different mounts etc I think I'm going to make my own kits and sell them on along with an easy wiring diagram.
