i just cum on to say that vauxhall 8v engines are the b*llocks iv got a corsa its my first car its a c12nz and every thing iv spent on it has been ether recoverd from old vx 8v's or bought dirt dirt cheap first i took the head off and striped it and compleatley cleand it i reamed out the valve guids and gave the ports and the valves a bit off a polish and the piston crowns i rebuilt it with a kent cam out a 1.3 sr nova, a 14nz injector, a 1.4 ignition coil new dizzy cap and rota arm brand new plugs and a modyfied fuel pressure regulator

and iv now raced 2 different 1.4 16v fiesta si's multi point injection and was pulling away slowley as soon as i got in 3rd i was gone, and this is a f*ckin 1.2 8v single point injection

vauxhall are head cases

the cam on these engines is horrific as standard so the 13sr item will be helping a lot

an 1800 cav throttlebody and 1600 astra inlet manifold will help too

as will getting a decent exhaust manifold onto it and removing the cat
