    Default Corsa B Track Car Question?

    I have a 1.2 16v 25K miles corsa sat here with a knackered chassis, long story but my brother crashed in to a kerb at speed lol,

    I have just bought a 1.0 3 door corsa and am gonna swap engines over.

    Will it plug straight in or will i need all the ecu off the 1.2 car?

    scrap that i will need the ecu as its been remapped lol

    will they swap over easy enough?

    Was gonna say something similar along the lines of the 2.0 16V Red Top is a simple common mod or even the 1.8 8V although the 16V turbo with nitrous in a mini is highly amusing

    Although you may have a point, is the 1.0 a three cylinder and the 1.2 a 4 cylinder?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
