  • Astra VXR engine in a Corsa

    Alright guys I'm looking for a bit of advice.

    Had my corsa VXR for a few months now and thinkin on doing some mods but not very sure on what to do.

    Been thinkin about buying an Astra vxr engine and putting it into the corsa but to sure.

    Any thoughts??????

    Great idea! Do you have more money than sense? 'Cos that would cost an absolute mint!! You'll get results just as great by modding the Corsa engine and the costs would be far less.

      Buy the Astra VXR.......?!?!?!? it comes with the astra vxr engine.......

      Would be alot less work, and think the insurance would work out cheaper too.......than modding the corsa...

                but sticking the astra engine in the corsa is different, no1 has done it before and being the 1st person in the country to do it is quite cool! and if you mod the astra engine imagine the power to weight ratio!!! ye it would cost a bomb but surely its worth it. i mean people spend 50k on a 106gti lol. whats the point? vxr's have much more sex appeal!! just gta b v careful if you do it.

                    agree with u there mate.
                    It certainly would be amazing.

                    Think I will just tune the engine. unless i win the lottery Lol

                    Am I right in saying that Regal are the best for tuning performance ??

                      That sort of question usually starts a "Tuner War" - gets as animated as who's the best football team etc

                          Why would you add a astra VXR engine into the corsa VXR body the weight of the VXR astra engine would be crazy heavy its a 2 litre turbo?

                            it an't that much heavier than the 1.6 engine to be honest and it what people have been doing for years bigger engine into little cars like the c20let into a nova iirc another 1st for courtenays infact courtenays turbo'd the old redtop before vauxhall did

                              Because I reckon it would be pretty amazing and wondered if it would be possible
