    Someone I know is putting one in a mk2 astra, a nova weighs the same as a fag packet, so it will be one mental car.

    Also got a lad near me who's put one in his corsa (hes only about 19, so god knows what it costs to insure )

    I think you should try and put it in a Robin Reliant......mount it in the back.

    Then see what Clarkson can do with it when he shows it a corner

    haha!

    Would the Nova not be too dissimilar to the Corsa B by means of power to weight ratio??.... Nova is a good choice also as would be different.. But would love to see a GTE with some serious umph!.....
