been offered a rolling sell with alot of the mods i want to do already done at a good price, only thing is it had a red top in it thats now been taken out so would require an engine and gearbox and some other bits and bhobs. my key area of concern is the engine and parts required to go with it. ive had a few ideas about what i could use and theres several that stick out.

1.6 nova gte
1.6 16v corsa (C16XE)
2.0 16v (C20XE)

basically i am wondering which has more work require, what parts are required for each, feedback from people with each and anything else you can think of.

cheers ross.

The C16XE should be a sweet choice - LOTS of potential in a small, light package.

Best engine would be a 1256cc out of a Vauxhall Chevette :lol: :P :)
