    Nice job, sounds like a rocket ship with the dblias stuff on it, should be well over 150hp. You must get pics up.

    As for the Corsa, the 1.4 is a pile of pants, a good 1.2 16v will go far better (my '04 1.2 SXi Corsa dyno'ed to 83hp totally standard when it had 9k on the clock).

    the graph for the rolling road that came with the car says 164 bhp which i know isnt as fast as the turbos but without the lag its just mint.
    love it,
    ur right mate the corsa wasnt fast but good for running round in.
    gotta sell it now.
    for the record its going on pistinheads and autotrader an possibly here too.
