Anybody have any experience or knowledge of these cars with that engine?

What to look out for etc.

I should replace the 3.2ís bulbs, but current ones good enough. Also if you replace bulbs should also do adjusters as well.
What they like with oncoming traffic in the dark, particularly if wet?

I'd only repair adjusters if necessary.
If they look bright but you can't actually see much they are past their best. Was amazed the difference with the two sets I've replaced.

Refurbished Diff (new seals, fresh fluid and coat of paint) fitted, aircon pipe replaced and further repair put in place, tyre repaired and cam cover gasket replaced. :)

Many thanks as always :)

« on: 16 January 2019, 13:49:36 »
I'd just change the pressure switch, you can get one for a fiver on ebay to prove it. Replaced a few on DTI Omega's and 1.2 Corsa's due to eith bringing the oil pressure light on or pissing oil through them. For a fiver as a first step its a no brainer.... Plus if the engine does really have such a low oil pressure it isn't much longer for this World.

Usually the exhaust cams which the cam seals fail on first

Stepdaughter has just bought a 56 plate (2007) Corsa  D 1.2 club 3 door with 50K on the clock for £2200 from a trader with warranty if that helps at all.

Design trim level is pretty high spec if I remember correctly?

Omega General Help / Re: Suspension Options
« on: 04 January 2019, 22:29:58 »
It's because of the weight distribution under the bonnet on a LHD plus Driver. Given that the genuine GM springs aren't sided (the standard fronts and MV6 LSC aren't when you could buy replacements from VX) I think buying two of the  LHD Passenger side springs would be the most sensible option... I await others thoughts on this.....

Omega General Help / Re: 2.6 , which cams are better for low end?
« on: 04 January 2019, 19:12:24 »
I think the gearbox ratios are the same between all V6s, but the 2.5/2.6 have a low geared diff.
Yes different ratio diff in a 2.6 auto to a 3.2 auto.... That said, I seem to recall Daz's 2.6 MV6 that he bought from Josh with a seized block that was promptly replaced with a 3.0 block and the 2.6 ignition setup was a fantastic sleeper with original 2.6 manual box and diff (I seem to recall the manual diff ratio was different again)...

Easier to check the multiram (front and rear) operation with two people unless you have diag software to operate them.
GM did a very good job of the multiram, many people have tried to better it - Mantzel tuning boxes etc - but the only gains you're likely to find are noise and fuel consumption.

Had G cams in my old 2.6, didn't notice much difference to standard to be honest and nowhere near the performance of a standard 3.2 even though the fuel consumption is similar.
