CORSA D / E engine swap

Post by Deco1953 » Sat Apr 28, 2018 8:29 am

Hi does anyone know if it is possible to put a CORSA E VXR engine in a CORSA D VXR 2009?

And if so how much work

I have a CORSA D 59 plate and after selling it one of the water pipes failed leaking the water. The person who purchased the vehicle said no warning lights and the engine lost power and smelt of burning. I thought high temp or low water level warning light would have displayed?

Also saying turbo has gone would the turbo go after over heating it's the small pipe going to the thermostat?

Now trying to resolve :(

I don't think there is that much difference hardware wise between the engines. But not sure if the looms and other little things might be different, so could need a bit of custom wiring to get it to work. The Corsa D VXR are a bit down on power compared to the E aren't they? Old ones are 189bhp new ones are 202bhp from memory?

Have you asked this question on vxronline? It's a bit more active than here and possibly might have even been asked on there before.
