    Yes distractions I've been trying to get the Piazza done hopefully for the Gemini nationals. Will organise a better clutch for the Barina for when I get the Piazza going.

    The Barina ended up becoming my daily when I needed it for work, so I bought another car for a daily - Cruze SriV 1.6 turbo. Similar engine/power to the Barina, just way heavier. Wish the Barina had the 6 speed box though.

    So now I don't have to worry about having a car to drive if I do anything to the Barina. Haven't done anything to the suspension. I think the coilovers need work, the front shafts have some rust spots, which probably won't go well with the seals.

    Is there an M32 which is the same bellhousing pattern as the Z18XE?
    Looking at the Cruze none of the mounting points are the same, so it's probably more work that I'm prepared to do at the moment. The equal length shafts setup would probably be good for torque steer though.

    cruze uses same bell pattern. some ah astras used a 6 speed manual and a z18xe. theres one in the wreckers down here. a few in the uk are fitting a16net and z16let engines and boxes as theyre common and cheap and quick
