took the driver headlight out for induction to prove what i already knew that my corsa was getting flatspots due to the engine getting warm then the car sucking hot air in making it feel a bit slow at times , when started from cold it runs better.









so relocation now needed of induction kit hole getting cut in the front bumper.

got a new front bumper tonight car currently has no front bumper on because i couldnt be bothered tonight.

will post pics tomorrow.

so now the list of mods to do:
refurb and spray my 15" astra alloys gloss white
2 new front arches
uprated front brakes(leave rears drums)
bilstein suspension kit
fit my new front bumper
get my 6 point cage welded in
fit 2 sparco bucket seats
sparco harnessess
front and rear strutbraces
chip
cam
throttlebodies
respray
4 new gsi skirt covers
buy gsi front bumper before the respray
fit the vauxhall griffin graphic
strip out the car more
remove carpet
fit group n exhaust and manifold
decat
get around ideally 150bhp+ from the x14xe
morette light kit
cut hole in front bumper for induction.

and many many more things.....

also thought you might want to know i was saving up for an integra type r id made my final descision on what i was having then i went for a spin in my old astra mk3 sport.

so now i think ill end up with an absolute minter of a mk3 astra gsi 150ps or maybe even a nice corsa gsi but the plan with them will just be to have a nice exhaust and bmc induction kit and thats it no touching the 2nd car,

and i can carry on doing some mad stuff to the corsa sport then.

right bought these:







plans are now euro the other idea i had was complete S**t should look wicked when im done with the gsi kit all bein smoothed etc.:thumbs:

cheers you 2 and yea it was going to be a rally sl*g then i thought naa i want it to look a nice car and not get abuse.

it looks sweet as with my a;lloiys on. buckets im having a game fitting as i knew i would lol.

plans now up to xmas should be:
get the gsi front
2 front arches
2.0 brakes
then bodyshop to be fully resprayed everything smoothed ill do a quick chop of what i mean.
respray in same colour again brocard yellow but with a pearl on top so when the sun hits it itll shine pink. should look gorgeous thts my main priorities before xmas and ill be happy.

then its just a case of next:
full suspension setup
morettes
maybe some nice euro rear lights
straight through exhaust ifd i decide im keeping the engine in
im determind to get more power out of the 1.4 sport than a redtop everyones makeing me more determind with their negativity towards my engine.

im gettin constant earbashing off the lot round here to redtop it,goldtop it,2.0 8v it and im like no no and no.

i want to be different the engine just balences the car so well its all a good balance maybe a turbocharger on it uprate all the engine components chipped,cammed,throttlebodied or running on r1 carbs instead etc.. to handle the power that sounds more sexual to me than buying a 2.0 turbo,2.0 8v,redtop etc....

when i smoke the civic type r infront or sit with the impreza i want to be able when they ask what im running to say mate its a 1.4 sport only 88bhp standard.
