    Somebody managed to fit a Z20let in his garage and is running fine with no problems. Can't remember who though lol.

          K0ax managed to do a full engine transplant

          As for the M32 that is the gearbox already in the Corsa (and Astra) just that the Astra has different ratios

                You need the Astra VXR M32 to match the Z20LEH as the corsa is a different varient with different housing.

                Lot of trial and error very little work out there has been done on the matter and publicised so you could spend months looking for the right parts to match up.

                That said perfectly possible to do if you've got deep pockets but most people just come to the conclusion they might as well tune the 1.6!

                  longer 5/6th final drive and the astra being a 2.0ltr the astra box has a bigger bell housing...

                    Some reasons being that for the money involved you can tune to 300bhp+. What with the Z20 being heavier than the Z16 you'd have to tune to stage 3/3+ (using Courts outline figures).

                      2ltr can handle the power better than a 1.6 and provide alot more torque...

                              yes you can ram loads of boost into a small engine and make big peak hp figures. but the power curve for it will be shocking, nothing, nothing, nothing, ahh ****. suddenly on boost. a bigger cc engine will end with with a much nicer/driveable powe curve.
