    It depend's, in not sure if there's a different fuel pump for the SPi/MPi engine's but if you were going from an engine as weedy as the 1.6 8v to a 2.0 then i'd be fitting the fuel pump out of the donor car.

    The fuel pump is in the tank, if you lift up your rear seats and pull the black cover off you'll be able to remove it

    i now its in the tank but thought it was only an SPI pump and a 1.8/2.0 are MPI's are they not or is it completley different to a corsa as you need to change the pump in them

    I am almost certain that the MPI,s run a higher fuel pressure the an SPI..if you have a Haynes manual check in the fuel section
