the gearboxes should be the same i think.

even if it is a gsi engine in it, doesnt mean your restricted to only getting another gsi engine, you can use any

erm, ecu might need to be changed to go with the engine, near enough any vauxhall engine will fit into the corsa, be it 1.2, 1.4, 1.6, 8valve, 12valve, 16 valve, etc etc

i still dont think you need to change the key over. getting a gsi engine may be a little tricky and hard to come by, plus, if it has had an engine changover, has it been declared to the dvla and insurance database? if not and is involved in an accident and its not been declared then the insurance would be invalidated
