Well i havn't done anything to my car yeat but i'm going to lay the foundations as things may start happening quick over the next 4 weeks or they may not lol.

I went to vuaxhall spares today and picked up the display loom and display for a fiver :D Thats one problem sorted.

I also proced up a full redtop set up and lucky for me they had a 2.0 xe redtop there with all the bits and everything i would need. I'm just waiting for my car back then i'm going to go down and take a look :D

As for now the only mods i have done are air filter and dented me bonnet :S

Vauxhalls famous 2.0 litre 16v engine, commonly found in calibras and cavaliers etc, its the most popular engine conversion for corsas and novas, Redtop is the nickname given to it due to the red strip across the cam cover.

As Jim said, the c20xe or 20xe are commonly refered to as redtops.
This is due to the sparkplug cover normally being red.
This is what they look like:


EDIT***

I'm too slow, Clutch beat me to it.
