    Corsa B Z18XE

    Hi!
    This is my little car. It was 1.4 si before the conversion.


    The original engine.

    Parts:
    Electric throttle sensor from vectra B, Brakes 256x24, wiring loom, exhaust tube from the cat to middlebox, 50,5->42 tube for the original exhaust, fuel pressure regulator, and my F15CR418 gearbox with wide 5 gear.

    Electric throttle body sensor

    The engine, with new piston rings.

    It's me
































    A few days later

    The electric throttle sensor, and the original throttle cable.

    Slim fan.

    Re: Corsa B Z18XE

    The mechanic was easy, just from the pipe of the heater I had to cut 1cm. The inlet manifold is too big, and the original radiator fan was too big.

    With the electric i had some problems. By the first start of the engine was the camshaft sensor bad, we have changed, then the immo was wrong. I have bought a new immochip, my man has programed, and that was the all problem.
    The wiring is fast the same as the x18xe1, just 6 wires + to the electronic throttle.

    Plans are for the next 2 months 50,5mm exhaust system without middlebox, and a new inlet manifold. I bought x16xe inlet manifold and z18xe manifold, cut both. I will weld them, and will make mantzel style inlet box.
    Future plan is new ARB, and bushes.

    Re: Corsa B Z18XE

    I have some problems with the electronic.
    The piston 3 will not run. I have changed the injector, then the coil pack, checkd the wiring, and last the ecu.
    The Z18XE ecu is a big ****.

    The whole electronic is in some gel, and the wires are very thin.

    And here is the problem, the wire is cracked by the soldering.

    Re: Corsa B Z18XE

    I have new exhaust manifold. Modified c20xe manifold. The shape of the pipes at the flange are the same as the exhaust ports. Between the pipe 1 and 4 i cut the welding, then was easyer to pull together. The height was 2cm bigger, i cut the pipes and weld togeather. My weldings are not perfect, that was my first MIG welding.
