i have jst had my corsa engine transplanted from a 1.0 3cyl to a 1.6 16v done by courtenay sport, i have it running at standard as 110bhp it was from an astra,

so whats every1's engine specs
meaning what power u got and what u done to ur 1.6 16v?


the reason y i didn't go any bigger as in engine size is coz i thought 1.6 16v is enough power gain considering i only had a little 1.0 3cyl,

Hooooollllllld up a minute.

The inlet manifold, is it straight back, or do the inletts curve halfway up?

If its teh curvy one, Kris is right. 100bhp hi torque model. Slightly less power, but slightly more torque at a lower RPM.

X16XE mods should still fit. You may have the X16XEL though.

well i didn't wanna get technical as i must say im not with it when it comes to talking engines all i knw is my engine is from an astra its a 1.6 16v c16xe and i got told from the lads it was a 110bhp and also they can do me a inlet manifold for jst over 700 which adds 20bhp which wud take it up to 130bhp

C16XE is 109bhp. Didn't think it was ever fitted to astras though?? U got a piccy of it? I'll tell u what lump it is.

700, i hope that includes fitting? And being COurtnay, that will be the mantzel box. Good modification, but will need to spend more to get the best from it as it works higher up the rpm range and the std limiter is too low.

yeah daimo m8, 109bhp sounds right,they probably done it to a round figure instead of an exact figure, and 700 does include fit5ting and yes it was a mantzel yeah i shall spend more but slowly

And i'd advise to buy it too.

I'd much rather purchase prooved 2nd hand gear than pay courtnay Fitting shouldn't be too hard either.

In fact, Matts got the complete package, so if u got the moola handy, i'd buy matts stuff now (even if u fit it at a later date!!)

I agree. Matt's engine is a superb example of a well tuned engine, put together by a very good engine builder. Well over 130bhp and the potential of more to come later...

Well put it this way,

With the C16XE engine, Donna has 161bhp @ 7500rpm.

Mods

Mantzel inlet manifold. Lexmaul 4-2-1 Exhaust manifold. Cat back exhaust, Ind kit, Superchip, errrr. thats it.

Car was RR at 114bhp with ind kit and Cat back exhaust b4 mods and on the same RR.

U dont get that much torque from it, but then ur never gonna get a good amont from the 1600 engine. Even Andys H 214bhp 1.6 16v only has 145lb ft. Standard 2.0litre torque.
