No probs. Try PM'ing mmvcorsa129 or mark.
They've both done the conversion endless amounts so should be able to help you.

While we're on about engine conversions, what happens to the insurance? Does it become a kit car or what? I want one done on mine but it depends on the insurance.

you can either use corsa gsi driveshafts, with standard corsa outer cvs and obviously standard hubs, but you will need 1.6 mk2 cavalier inner cv's (22 spline IIRC)

or the better option is to use chris astleys shafts with his motorsport hubs, that way you can use the 2.0 cav inner and outer CVs, so its much more durable:thumbs_up:
