    Default Potential Project Car

    So I bought a really cheap corsa B whilst I was looking for my New Vectra, I found it the day after I bought the Corsa. Wasn't expecting it that quick.

    The Corsa on the whole is sound, but has some issues.

    Braked down from about 75 and the car shuddered from 65 upwards after that, first time taken above that speed.

    I have a conscience and can't just sell something on that is unsafe, but I didn't want to spend any money on it.

    So I was thinking, PROJECT CAR! I really don't care about it, it's MOT'd until September.

    So what to do with it? I reckon it may be a warped disc, but it's too cold at the moment to look. I was having a look on other forums but they are all adding cosworth whale tales and stupid things like that. Not really interested in bodywork.

    Would love to do an engine swap (but aside from doing a top-end rebuild on a C20NE and usual maintenance, brakes etc.) I don't really have any talent.

    It's an X14SZ, a C20NE would be ace and a fab easy to work with engine. No immobiliser and stuff.

    Ideas Please!

    I'd be cheaper buying a Cavalier/Calibra Turbo these days!
