You can get a 1.4 or 1.6 engine from a simlar age corsa to your and drop that in. I'm not sure how difficult it is what with yours being a 1.0 12v. I think the ecu is located in a different place to other corsa b's.

It will have, all modern cars have them, it's how the thing is controlled.

as with all the conversions its fairly easy, if you desided to fit an ngine thats well been fitted before ie a corsa b engine in a corsa b it wont be a problem, most of the corsa shells are the same, there are a few changes depending on the spec and year but nothnig you cant work with c16-xe from an older corsa gsi would be fun and would have great potential latter on for moding :)

yeh a mate of mine had a 1.0 12v which now has a c16xe engine, and afaik its a pretty straighforward conversion, mount are all the same, wiring is easy enough, you use the same drive train, upgrade the brakes to corsa gsi or cav/cally 2.0 ones, and the ecu needs to be relocated but that shoudlnt be much of a problem.

also you may need someone who can weld to mate the exhaust
