ECU Remap isn't worth it at all.

To be honest mate, be happy with what you've got, don't go spending cash on things such as Max-Flower Induction Kits for +23millions BHP. Save cash, progress up through the insurance brackets, by that time you will have enough to sucessfully insure a faster car and pay for it.

Hope this helps - Just mu opinion.

No not for little cash.

Induction kits dont make any noticeable difference to performance and re-maps are expensive and pointless on such a small engine.

Do what stu said and save your cash.

Just wondering - I had my corsa for 3 years before looking into something faster, and I can only just afford the insurance now.

Be happy with your corsa and look into more power in the future :)

All the best!

coz i cant affoed the insurance on a sri conversion :(
I put a 1.6 into my Corsa, it cost me a grand total of about £200, if that. Fair enough I had the mechanic to help me fit it but it wasn't really that expensive.

As I say mate (not to sound like a c**t here) but stick with the 1.2 untill you can afford to insure and buy a bigger, more powerfull motor. :thumbs_up:

As for insurance, yes mine was stupid price but I could have insured it for about £300 as a UK Starlet, but that obviously makes my insurance invalid and I don't fancy picking up the soap in prison. :D
Keeping your 1.2 aswell, you can build your no-claims up which also reduce your insurance.

Sorry Im not trying to sound like a party pooper or anything, just expressing my opinion!

Its their car, their insurance. It just pisses everyone else off because it puts young drivers insurance policies up when they have an accident!

Not thought of a 1.4 or 1.6 sport engine implant?
