There is a similar looking sail done by Rio in yellow colour with blue graphics with a custom exhaust, et all.The car is from Mira Road.It had once come to my office.The owners bro had come to drop his friend (sweet one).I spoke with him for sometime and finally managed to rev the car like mad and also have a short spin.It drove like a dream and for the fact it sounded so nice.the chics and the guys around my office premises were completely bowled.

Hey dadude,

Just for your knowledge am going to be starting some engine mods on a Opel Swing 1.6 today. Poerting/Polishing, Exhaust, K&N Universal Filter, Iridium Plugs, MSD Wires etc. raising & stiffening the car

i dont think an engine swap will be of much help ..corsa's drawback is its weight and its suspension (in terms of performance)...
i suggest you get you suspension stiffened lower the rear eliminate the oversteer..
the 1.3 honda lets out 70 plus bhp compared to the 88bhp 1.4 etec..1.5honda lets out 100bhp but for that you have to change the gear box and everything ..
its better if you stick to the stock engine block .. muffler ,air induction system and performance headers should give you a decent power boost .. corsa is a very popular tuner car in europe .check out www.cardomain.com you might get a few ideas ..

cheers

Correction Honda City 1.3(OHC) was not 70 bhp it was 90 to be precised and yes it whips todays NHC. By the way the car also has a light weight OHC unlike the Sail and also engine swap will not be that easily. The engine will be lighter then your current engine!

Cheers
