Thread produced to show the range of exhausts available for the corsa (or others if you fancy). Idea is to save people searching about and posting threads all the time asking which exhaust/what noise etc.
Anyway, post up a vid of the exhaust,
say what it is (irmy, sportex etc)
This sticky is for members to post up their recent rolling road results. Please use the following format.

b) Using a higher RON fuel will give me better performance
c) Using a higher RON fuel will give me better economy
a) Keeping this simple, let's say YES. There are situations where this is not the case but it...

My lovely corsa developed another issue today. As I was driving i felt that my front left wheel was somehow shaking so I stopped the car to check what's going on and found out that the clip that was holding the inner cv joint boot was hanging at the middle of the cv. Then i noticed...
Hello guys. Noticed a leak under the bonnet today and one of the pipes has basically come off. I have no idea why. It's simply just sitting on top of where it usually is rather than being secured in. It's the smooth, thin black pipe in the picture. Forgive me for being stupid, but is that the water...
Hello everyone, i am relatively new here and have almost no mechanical experience and i'm rendering myself clueless when it comes to cars, i bought this car a few months back and its a brilliant little runner, it starts straight away, does not lose power (unless its uphill haha) and has covered...
As stated by Warren G in this post I think that the exhaust manifold of an A14XER will fit into a Z14XEP.
And since A14NET is a turbod A14XER the exhaust manifold of an A14NET may fit a Z14XEP as well?
If this is correct, i am stuck with the turbo used in th A14NET manifold which got...
Tried changing the NSF drive shaft as the one I have is shagged (see video).
But the hub/castle nut is completely seized. Tried penetrative oil, blow torch and a great big breaker bar. Nothing.
Is it possible to take out the drive shaft with the break pad still attached?
Or should I just...
The wife's car today displayed the oil pressure light on the dash, this momentarily at first then came on when the car stopped. Hasn't done it since but the missus uses the car as a daily commute for work.

One of my camshafts has sheared in 3 pieces on my combo 1.3 and the egnine is basically a write off. What would i need exactly to put the 1.7cdti (100bhp) in please guys?
This is a question for my brother so it's his description (he's not a car guy):
When driving along around 50-60 mph, if you try to accelerate hard the car often just starts to decelerate for a moment before accelerating again. This is more likely to occur when changing gear.
What I can tell...

Hi I have a corsa 1.4 twinport and emissions light is on would a blowing exhaust cause it to come on .it's blowing at the flexi pipe
I don't think it's the tappets. Although it does seem to be there all the time (especially under load). But i can't help thinking it's something else. Could it be the timing chain?
The car has only done 64k miles but if it's going to need a new chain i'm wondering if it's going to be time to...

As the title suggests, I have a problem with my 2006 Corsa C 1.2L Twinport Z12XEP. (It's silver, if that helps). With the help of this forum, I've kept my car running pretty well.

Does anyone know what screws/Bolts are fitted on the Corsa C 1.2 2004 EGR and can you damage the threading if you screw them too hard?
First post so apologies in advance if I'v posted to the wrong section. I can't find a description for this particular set of symptoms in the forum.
For completeness/background, Driver's side door has long since refused to lock via the key fob. However, unlocking via key fob has always worked...
Found out the otherday that my car will roll in gear (parked with engine off in 1st gear) and took hand brake off and car rolled backwards. Never heard of any cars doing this. Car drives normal and all that. Any idea whats up and can you try this on your corsa and see if it does the same?
Has anyone upgraded the turbo on their 1.7 CDTI?
If so what turbo is the most plug and play (of course a remap would be needed and a fmic)?
would a turbo upgrade be worth it?

Today I went to test drive a used Corsa C today (I've been driving my dad's Corsa D but wanted my own car). I drove round the block and the engine just didn't sound right, I suspect it was the timing chain. But as I went to go up a hill I noticed the Clutch started to slip and wouldn't go into...

So, I messed up and plonked one of these onto my new linkage without knowing I can and need to adjust its length by twisting the nuts and sockets.
Will I be able to remove this without taking the entire new linkage out? It is on pretty solid so I'm not exactly sure how to pop the sockets off...

Hey Guys & Galls.
I shall soon be starting a z20let conversion on my 1.2. Anyone got any tips or advice before I start? Engine & F23 gearbox has come off a zafira gsi.
So the only way my radio works is if I have the ignition switch on my 2005 corsa set to live. So whenever I'm parked up or whenever I have to wait in the car for a while I have to turn the radio on which means keeping the ignition switch on live for however long I'm waiting. So I'm wondering is it...
I've noticed my 2001 1.2 sxi is leaking a little coolant every day and dripping from the underside of the bumper. It looks to be coming from the bottom left of the radiator (if you were to be looking at the car from the front). I jacked it up and had a quick look from underneath:
Which companies make good performance cams? I'm thinking of getting so camshafts of ebay from a z12xe to get regrinded for fast road/rally use. What cost would i be looking at and what sort of performance gain? Thanks in advance
