      just a change of pistons and rods
      not looked at crank yet could be a easy way to get 200cc

              the standard corsa head is a z18 or an x18 head so my guess would be is that it will bolt up toan 1800 block!

                  the Z18xep twinport Block is used as std
                  so just change the rods not looked at crank yet

                        Just changing the rods wont increase the CC's of the engine. to inrease cc's you either need to increase the size if the piston or lengthen the length the stroke, so my guess, again, would be the corsa has a shorter throw crank so just swap the crank!

                          i'm sure forged pistons, steel rods from a z18xe would work, and the crank too.

                          as its the same block... would have looked into it more if i was keeping my car.

                              as these could be stolen from a Z20LEH and made to fit me thinks..
