I have forsale 1994 Vauxhall Corsa GSI with a 2.5 V6 conversion. I bought the car for £3000 about 6 months ago, with the conversion already done. I am putting this up for sale as I have recently purchased a astra coupe and want to spend money on it, and i havent got round to insuring on taxing the corsa, and so i have lost interest.

The guy who had it before me got the conversion done at Power Crazy in Lincoln. The donor car was a cavalier 2.5 V6, and as far as i know it was rebuilt after been removed from the car, but i dont have anything showing the actual millage of the engine, but the shell has done 129,00 miles. The body work is a bit rusty in places, and the bumper could do with touching up, but apart from that it cleans up well.

Since owning the car I have spent over £500 on the car. I have bought an Auto watch alarm giving the car remote central locking, high frequency motion sensors, boot, bonnet, door and glass sensors with a blue led warning light (£250) New Camlbelt kit (£104), the oil, oil filter and fuel filter (about £20). Then £150 getting all of these fitted, and a new cv joint and ball joint. I have reciepts for near enough all of this.

Also bought camber adjustment bolts (£44.99) and got them fitted at richtoy motorsport (£35)

Modifications :

16" Fox Racing Alloys

Lowered 60mm (coilovers still on car but are sold)

2.0 cross drilled and grooved disks with green stuff pads

Sports exhaust

3 litre cams

K&N

Chipped ECU

Lightened balanced flywheel

Up-rated clutch

stealth shelf with 6"9's

amp wiring kit

the car will also come with a pioneer flip down stereo

chrome bonnet lifters

Silocone Hoses

chrome oil and water caps, not fitted yet (bought from lmf vauxhall, both came to about £80)

The power of the engine is unknown, but I think the standard bhp of the engine is 190 odd, and plus youve got the cams and the chip. oh and I havent got round to changing it on the logbook yet, so its still down as a 1.6 GSI

I was looking for around £2500 for the car which i think is a fair and reasonable price for a very rare and fast car.

If you are interested please contact me (james) on 07823889478

I have a 2.2 coupe, i pm'd you about your wheels on midnight woteverified as im looking for some 17's for mine, got it rolling roaded yesterday, 158 bhp!

And no mate i wasnt in howden the other day, it hasn't been on the road since ive had it, apart from fitting asnd removing the coilovers, and I can definatly say that the v6 is quicker, you just have to look at the quarter mile times at pod and that, the have soo much torque it unbelievbale.

And becuase I am getting desperate to sell now, i will accept 2000 cash :D

just an idea like, but might be interesting to see the difference between the two 3 litres, ive heard of a bloke that managed to get a 3.0 senator engine onto an f20 box then threw it into his corsa, its a track car but would be a good comparison on a 1/4 mile.
