Not sure weather this question shud come under this thread so apologies if it is not.

I love my baby corsa too pieces and don't really want to sell her although she has got only a timid 1.0litre 3cly engine. (Not very quick). everything else that is done to it i like but i need more power.

Basically, im in need of either an engine change or some serious tuning of a 1.0litre. i tend to think the engine conversion will be the best option.
This brings me to my real question.

Where can i get a converstion done for cheap? Can't do it myself cause i havnt got a clue about doing serious sh*t to enignes and don't really want to pay regal or courtneay an arm and a leg although i hear their work is the bollocks.

Show me the light miggers! Anyone with any ideas please post back. getting overtaken bya scooter aint funny! :eek:

Most garages won't touch anything that isn't a straight forward like for like swap. There may be someone local to you who will do it for a price but you can't beat getting stuck in yourself.

It's nuts and bolts. As long as you are capable of using a spanner you can do it.

Well it all depends on how much things cost. To be honest im more inclined to have 1.6 instead rather than a LET or XE simply because of the insurance.

How much do engines cost these days anyway. obviously i would be needing a good one with options to be tuned if need be. :cool:

THE VALET MAN on here has a 1.6 for sale with 40odd thousand miles for sale, PM him! I think he was only wanting £100 for it! :eek:
