Hi guys, I'm new here really. Currently drive a Corsa 1.6 Sport, subtle mods etc but getting a bit old for it now (27) so looking for something more grown up. Clearing some debts at the moment so majority of spends would have to come from the sale of my car.
Been looking @ 3 door Astra G's, 1.8's mainly... more about, decent balance of performance and economy I'm told.
But, I'd probably be looking at earlier 1.8's, I believe theres 2 engine types. One being less powerful.
I know nothing about them, so can anyone enlighten me what the differences are, if either engine is more reliable than the other, economy, performance etc and if strictly speaking I should avoid the earlier 1.8 engine for any reason?
Clearly I'd not like to go slower than I already am lol... about 110BHP in a 1050ish KG motor. But if I can get a bit more power from the earlier 1.8 with simple breathing mods if it's a decent engine then bonus.
