    Cool, looks good and will be fast in the upcoming Corsa VXR.



    "It's a 1.6 four-valve with turbo. In the Astra it makes 180bhp (it'll be 10 more, with a fruitier-sounding exhaust, in the Corsa)."

    Ideal for a remap

    A four valve? As in one per cylinder? How does that work?

    will still be pretty expensive on insurance as it will be about a group 15-16 IMO
