    They were less shit then I thought.

    use the calibra engine, box, loom, ecu, use corsa gsi driveshafts, 1 mount is made, the rest are stock barina, 9 wires gets it running. really easy conversion.

    They have one of the most awkward footwells to try to manipulate, other than that they don't really rate too bad on my books

    So the corsa driveshafts are the only thing that would have to come from blighty?

    Sounds like a good alternative to a VTEC conversion in a Civic

    SRi was from later series.
    GSi was the sporty from this even more appalling series. I had a GSi (16v 1.6 they were) as a supplied company car for a year or so, fucken awful rancid pork chop it was. Think Swift GTi, except an ape-like driving position and a characterless engine.

    158mph with under 200bhp is not going to happen no matter what the gearing

    barina Cof d is apparently .35, a stock E36 M3 has Cof D .33 and just reaches 155mph with 321bhp...

    sorry but were you sat in the car looking at the gps? nah didnt think so. and fuck bmw, the e36 m3 was shit.


    heres the math:

    Speed @ Limit 1st 36.18 Mph
    Speed @ Limit 2nd 59.46 Mph
    Speed @ Limit 3rd 86.78 Mph
    Speed @ Limit 4th 113.66 Mph
    Speed @ Limit 5th 173.57 Mph

    calculated using this:
    http://slindborg.hostei.com/gears/index.php

    195/45/15

    gearbox f20 w5a

    max rpm 6700


    then using this:

    http://slindborg.hostei.com/topspeed/TopSpeed.php

    enter:
    oEfficient of Drag cD 0.35
    Frontal Area of Car Mē 1.638 - yes i calculated that.
    Peak Power / Power @ Limiter Bhp 173bhp.

    Desired Top Speed 160 Mph


    result:

    Predicted Top Speed 161.19 MPH
    BHP needed at the wheels to achieve Desired Top Speed 169.19

    therefore: suck shit.

    I don't have the energy to work through it all just to come on here and tell you that you're wrong.

    Suffice to say, you're wrong.

    As speed doubles, the power required to push through the air quadruples. 200hp is nowhere near enough. So yeah, you're wrong.

    I thought it was just a slip on the key board. That I can forgive you for, but if you seriously think a 173hp Barina can top 158mph, you sir have been smoking some serious crack. 128mph sounds closer to the money...

    edit: and it had a powerchip

    Tbh, don't totally hate that and have some corsa hate... Apart from absolutely shitful cabrio we got loaned, sisnopics wanted one, advised to buy coty xc, nice, serviced and all, 4-5 yo at the time, was a fairly genuine gm experience. persistent electrical, trim, no start bullshit. In gm fashion, after all replaced and a series of hissy fits, doesn't seem to be exploding but still randomly surprises her with small stuff like the indicator or wipers not working. Personally, would not beat with a barge pole.

    vn with standard sc sicness mods, stockish anywhere from 160-180hp, long stretch somewhere around the place saw just over 200. There was just a bit left in it but suspension was terrifying (so last top speeder). And the road turned eventually. vn also likely a bit heavier than sb...

    Couldn't be fucked doing the math due to 4 beers, i'll use simple analogy and go meh, i'll wait and see, be an interesting project... More lol at the moderator on the chav forums, just makes me go what the fuuuuc.... seeing a bunch of dudes sharing love for sb's, and there's a lot of them there!

    Nice work anyway mate, I don't get it but it's a good education into the seedy world of chav corsamania!

    i dont see how over 150 mph is out of the question. its not like its the trap speed on the quarter or anything. shit i've been in a daewoo nubira wagon doing well over 210 kmh with a 120kg passenger and 2 wheels and tyres in the back. did it really fucking easy too!
    have been in a standard 4 speed manual vk doing 220kmh. apparently the black motors were only good for 85kw!

    Alfa 164 QV needs 230hp to pull 150mph, and they're pretty slippery in terms of drag coefficient. Fuck trying for that sort of speed in a Barina...
    "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

    There is much retardness in this thread and that is coming from me. You cant compare a car to another purely on bhp and cd.

    A FWIW my commo will do 190km with about 150bhp HTH.
