Got this 05 Barina (as im in australia and these cars aren't appreciated down under) as a birthday present from my parents, needed ECU swap and fuel injectors ect but 2 years down the track and all the hard works paid off, hoping to do a z20let swap soon or drop something else into it.

Before


After 2 years of work internal and external
Wheels 205/40r17 Crimson Inc. Linea sport rims

205 width wheels + varex muffler

Engine + Pod filter held in by a cable tie ofc
and my Ebay Foglight kit installed

2.5' straight pipe through to a Varex Muffler as we have a noise limit of 92 decibels from a car

the guy who had the car before me had a z20let in it. the first one in the uk too.
tune it to 368bhp but still says its much more fun now.
and the sound :love::yipee::love:
will be posting the wiring guide once we get a rainy day and i cant do any thing out side.
all scribbles on multiple sheets of paper now.
takes around 2 days to fit a z22se. and then another 2 too supercharger it.

That'll be awesome, nice to see a different conversion. I remember this when it was a z20let. Its actually pictured in the new performance Vauxhall magazine.
i havn't read mine yet but just flicked through and found the photo, when it was in for chairmans cup at VBOA rally this year.
better now than when it had the z20let, well i and the previous owner think so.
first z20let on uk roads and first z22se on uk roads.

last week we had EuroFest the biggest gathering of European vehicles in Western Australia, and the corsa was a hit, many said it bought back memories from the UK,

The new headlights defiantly change the look of the age of the car, just need to get her lowered and she'll be perfect
