If I had a Corsa with a C20LET in it I would probably kill myself within 5 minutes of driving it!

- Would need to get ur calender out if u plan to stop.....

I'd just prefer not to have a turbo, would rather get TB's and feel more reassured that i ain't gonna pop it...

Nahhh, I still dont think LET's are all that great in a corsa. Dont see the point in haveing an engine that tries to spin teh wheels up all the time.

XE is deffo the way to go

Speak to Lee Mitchell. The whole conversion inc engine only costs about 1500! Takes him 1 week to do as well.

Cheers for the help!

Don't want a 1.6 either, will get fed up with that too quick...........Was gonna ask Lee, but can get it done cheaper than chips, i just have to buy the parts and give him the car........

Gotta look at brakes and coilovers now...
