Hello all just purchashed my self a corsa gsi!! Not in great shape though! It's a bit rotten and done 140000+ I don't know much about the c16xe engines but it still runs like a dream considering it needs a cam sensor. but I'm looking into making this into project. wondering what you all know about these and any information would be great! Here I have some pictures. All comments welcome!

That back arch looks really bad. If you do decide to keep it and repair it, i'd be pulling up the carpets and going underneath with a light hammer checking for rust.

Craig55's GSI didn't look as bad rust wise from the outside but it needed massive amounts of welding to sort it out.

At that mileage and using the X16XE i'd probably break it up.

If you want a gsi i would buy a bog spec carbaric blue corsa with low milage and mot and swap it over and rebuild engine at that milage the oil scraper ring will be stuck in allowing oil to pass and burn even with the amount of welding mine has had it will only be short term
