    Default Corsa C engine help please ??!! :)

    Hi all,

    As some may be aware, I have been repairing my Grandads Corsa that
    suffered a cam chain failure. I know its a vec forum but still worth a shot with
    the knowledge on here.

    Ok, I have a new head, I've fitted it. Perhaps it was my fault for not checking but the head I have bought from ebay is from the X12XEP twinport engine, whereas I have the standard 1.2 16v X12XE. I will point out it was advertised as the correct X12XE

    Anyway, so it fits the block but I now have a twinport engine. This means my inlet will not fit, the injectors im guessing will not be suitable and also, I assume a may need a different throttle body.

    My question, if I can obtain these parts, will the car run ? Will I need new ECU's etc ? Is is too much hassle ?

    CORSA C 2002 (52) 1.2 16V X12XE

    Thanks all..

    someone may be able to answer off here.. but I'd recommend reposting on www.migweb.co.uk as many of their users are running corsas with engine swaps etc..
