      They were less shit then I thought.
      later post 2000 have totally different underpinnings.

      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
            I own a two and a half litre Commodore

              nah, ive sourced the driveshafts from adelaide. you can get all the parts here apart from 1 mount. but thats soon to change, as this brit bloke in vic will be making them....

                HAS to be.

                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

                      He forgot to mention it was out of the back of a plane on its way to terminal velocity
                      now with extra gearbox'y goodness

                        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.

                              who cares?

                              turbo 2L barina will be funny and fast.
