Looks good matey.

Ask Lawton/corsajohn on here you could prob go even lower then 60mm if you wanted to.

Think i would like the wheels for my 200 in white.

Like these wheels,explains why they are so popular with corsas. However,not keen on the rear lights or the 16v badges (imo they look tacky)

And you might wanna take caps lock off dude

Pick up a BMC CDA if you can stretch to one. Was probably one of the best mods I ever did to mine. Made a fantastic noise at high revs, and combined with a Janspeed de-cat and exhaust got me up to 125bhp.

wasn't the 1.6 corsa restricted to 105 bhp as they were quicker than the Astra gsi.

like the wheels worth the 700notes brand new.

yep, originally the engine was developed by lotus, and when it was given to vauxhall it was producing 150bhp, but vauxhall had just reliased the astra gsi which had the redtop 150bhp engine in, so vauxhall restricted the 1.6 by tuning it down

Reminds me of the old 'Redtops had 200bhp, but they had to change the manifold to a restrictive one because it was too fast'.

Lotus did the inlet I think?
