    Corsa b enigine change

    If you start putting cams into a redtop you can kiss goodbye to 300 immediately, couple that with a decent pair of vernier pulleys to sort out the cam timing and theres another 100. with buying a lump to use as a base and by the time youve bought gaskets and everything else 500 looks a bit...

    Corsa b enigine change

    Any MPI head is better than the SPi head,due to better shape and position of the inlet ports, look for SE engine codes. all of the vauxhall small block family of engines will slide in nicely, wouldn't worry about cam upgrades unless your going to do something with the rest of the motor...

    Building a custom car body

    Re: car body I would research building a kit before you start, I built a Cobra 20 years ago and it was good fun with nothing more than an MOT at the end to satisfy the DVLA, nowadays though you have to get the car IVA tested before you can use it on the road, 40 page document full of rules and...

    Connect positive lead to the largest terminal on the starter motor, not sure about this particular model but is easily reachable from underneath with the bonnet closed on most cars, negative to any part of the underside for an earth then connect other ends to a battery, this should be enough to...

    gas flowing your own cylinder head

    The box I described does exactly that, vacuum on sucks air through the cylinder head as you open the valve, I agree it will be the wrong way round when you do the exhaust port but as Mr Vizard explained the exhaust side is less important than the inlet as you just need to get rid of the burt...

    gas flowing your own cylinder head

    The basic principle is to pull air through the head at various positions of valve lift then have a way of measuring the flow. Do this with a stock head (bearing in mind what cam you intend to fit) then start working the head a little at a time and repeat the process. You need a box which...

    gas flowing your own cylinder head
