HI all my Corsa is a 1800 cc pushing only 80 kilowatts and about 160 neuton meters of torque as its only an 8 valve engine. not sure what that works out to in horse power ?? in south africa we lose power due to the altitude as we are 6000 ft above sea level. Our Corsa's are not of the european design but brazilian if i am not mistaken with only 8 valve jobs and not the 16 valve that you guys have ( how do you post pics then i could show you guys???)

Equivalent to 107.2 BHP compared to the 16v's 125.

To post a pic it must be already hosted on the web and use the
tags in between the url for the pic. If you can't host them then send them to me at: [email protected] and I'll host them for you.

hello its a pitty about the 8 valve as most other makes of cars here in south africa are 16 valve engines. the astra here is a 16 valve and most of the other models in the astra range are all 16 valve motors so i dont know why they gave the Corsa an 8 valve plant. They might be bringing the opc corsa here whivh i beleive will be quite potent, if they do then i will most certainly buy one. I will see if our news agents have that mag here and i will have a look at it thanks for the tip
