Davey, wouldn't you rather build a new loom than modify an existing one?
I think I would.

Even if it is a pipe dream lad atleast you're doing something new. Could be worse you could not even own a corsa anymore but spend your days battering people's ideas down on a corsa forum

you are talking of doing a 1.2 turbo conversion and fitting a c20 looks 'quite difficult'
first ask your self what power you want to end up with and do you want forced induction or stay n/a, then choose the engine (plenty around) z20let with stand alone ecu cable throttle and a few other choice parts would be good and not be to expensive. plenty of astra g z20let cars about for sensible money.


ok thats good to know because i was sure wether a z20let fitted a b as you only really see them in corsa c's

Hang on, hang on.. You seem quite happy to build a loom for a stand-alone management system but you're quibbling over a few wires on an engine conversion..

I predict this is a pipe dream and will never get done


i thought you you just unplug standard ecu and then use a plug and play

yeah ive only seen one 1.2 turbo corsa b and it sounded quite cool but i thought it would be a good upgrade, not too difficult to do and the 2.0l conversion is obviously going to be better but im going to have to inform the DVLA of the change of the engine size and im only 17 so my insurance is already over a grand with a black box so thats out the window for now, wear as I might of been able to get away a little bit with turboing but i don't really know now

Hi everyone, I know itís been a while but I remembered the other day I asked this question and thought some might be interested to know how I got on with this idea.
Itís not quite a x12xe turbo 6speed, it is 6speed though, which you can probably guess what engine it is&#128514;.
As forums donít seem to be as active as they used to be, Iíll leave it at that but if anyone is wondering I can try get couple of pictures and explain.

Just more sort of a thing to show people who arenít sure on whether they can do a project like this, you can do it with research and patience and donít let people tell you that you canít.
