    Why not wait for the release of the corsa VXR? I'm sure it'll be using some kind of Z16 engine. So we maybe in luck and manage a bolt of proceedure. But the biggest question would be the ECU and the type systems it uses IE canbus ect. However I'd just be tempted to wait. I'm sure some boy racer will soon shove his corsa VXR into a tree sideways, so either an engine transplant or bolt on turbo. After a while they'll get even cheaper as more and more get piled into the scrappies. Plus Vaux will start selling the parts over the counter.

    Those kits from ebay are supplied by Matteus anyway, it's just a company putting on a mark-up, so you are better dealing with Matteus direct.

    This is his website....

    www.Mvaux.com


    Look at the Corsa/Nova page for a 1.6 kit.

    the meriva vxr has 1.6 turbo engine based on the twinport 1.6

    Diablas from regal do a turbo conversion.

    I would personally speak to sbd motorsport, about throttle boddies. And what they can offer you for the 1.6 16v, they really know there stuff on small block vauxhall engines
