That guy started doing one then gave up due to cost. Personally it looks too much of a tight fit for comfort and not really economically viable.

The idea in there is that you can get a lot of donor parts from the Meriva VXR, but not sure if this is a tried and tested conversion yet.

any thing is possible.
as the 1.6 is smaller and used in the C for race/rally spec cars then mechanically it will go but as to the electrics with corsa D being full canbus and C only part canbus you my find you need stand alone ecu.
the z16xer is used in westfields or a similar car though.
good luck and keep us posted
