Surely the site u've found could tell u the EXACT price of the conversion,we could guess for u but that'd be very vague. Id say around 6k+ but i could be wrong,it may be as little as 4k,depends how hard the conversion is,and only this company know really

Garages like to charge lots on this! 4k is -ridiculous-, 6k is unbelievable!!

The engine is just a 'redtop' with lower compression - pistons, manifolds, the turbo and the bits (obviously) and different ECU.
It'd be cheaper to do it this way, as the engines have skyrocketed to over 1K, I remember when they were going for 400 - 500 quid, and that was only 3 years ago. A redtop costs around 250 - 350 quid. Get the engine into a tuners, buy some forged turbo pistons and rods. And if you're really tight, get a turbo unit from a diesel!!
You haven't reached the price for a Calibra/Cavalier Turbo engine, even after being rebuilt.

The Corsa needs ... new mounts.
In fact, it only needs one, although the old one can be redrilled to fit. You can buy three new mounts for , or use your old ones and a drill.

It also needs new driveshafts, as the new gearbox won't match the hubs (larger engines have more splines on the driveshaft stub).
Or, changing the whole strut for a better type means you can get the driveshaft from an Astra, Cavalier or Calibra for 10 quid.
And MTech charge over 100 quid for a 'special' driveshaft!

You will need better brakes, which comes replacing the old whole strut for a 25 quid Calibra/Cavalier/Astra effort (again, bypassing the need for 200 quid brake setup), and a decent servo/master cylinder while you're at it - 10 quid from a scrap Omega V6.
You don't need new rear brakes, drums do the job, discs are pretty much cosmetic on the Corsa.
Finally, you need a different thinner drive belt (it rubs on the side of the engine bay) and an angle grinder to take 1cm out to fit the alternator properly.

There's a decent intercooler on the Frontera. One cost me 20 quid from Green Lane salvage! smile

There's a slight problem with the turbo Corsas, and that's traction, you will never use 1st gear!!

What about concidering doing a 3000cc omega V6 engine swap. 210bhp out the tin. Yes the engine will fit as its the same size as the 2.5 block. would be sweet and the engine wouldnt be as expensive. was going to consider this myself in a while when i have some money.

the only problem with the v6 corsas are that there is no kits available so you would have to make all the engine mounts, and the speedo doesnt work so you will have to have a seperate speedo

This intercooler kit is for Corsa's with a 2.0 conversion (c20let). It has the same capacity as the Cavalier/Calibra but has different end caps for ease of fitting on the smaller cars.

The intercooler is unique intercooler, first Impressions of the intercooler would be that it is like any other on the market, however there are some significant differences. This is the most efficient Intercooler of its type with visible fins inside the Intercooler; these fins create more air turbulence enabling the intercooler to cool the air more efficiently. The exit temperature of the intercooled air is only 15 higher than the ambient temperature, proving a very efficient intercooler. This enables more air to be forced into the cylinders at the same volume as a gas takes up less volume when it is colder.

All pipes that come with this kit are a larger bore than standard being 50mm.


Price 466.00
