    The alternator will charge the battery. The Nova won't be out much, so the battery needs to get charged every couple of months.
    Lithium battery's need an lithium charger with an battery management systems(BMS). lithium battery's don't like way lead battery chargers work and will kill the battery.

    No, the alternator has it's own BMS, so no changes

    Haven't done much on the corsa the past few months, so I decided that i need the car running before the end of February.
    A lot of small things that needs to be done; fitting axles, wiring, fit the front and rear window, make some new Lexan windows for the front windows etc.


    In the meanwhile been searching parts

    turbosmart Gen v hypergate 45 wastegate




    AP Racing brake bias. surely looks pretty decent next to the China brake bias...




    AP racing direct fit brake fluid reservoirs.


    I have 1 small and 3 medium ones(the one in the picture is the small one).
    Bleeding the brakes will not be fun, but it is saves some money on the Tilton reservoir(and hoses).
    The grp4 Tilton pedalbox mount looks pretty decent so planning on buying on one off these for mounting the pedalbox .

    Bought an extra set wheels to mount the R888's on.
    It will need some new wheel studs to mount some small diameter lug nuts




    The lexan window were cracking on the windowslider mounting holes. So I took the windows out and cut up some new windows



    Fitted the first window



    And the other side



    I wasn't happy with the fitment on the rear window on the previous Corsa.
    So made some adjustments to the Lexan en it fits much better now:





    Also bought a new intercooler.
    I've gone with the ATP turbo 400hp intercooler, cast alu endtanks and an Garrett intercooler core

    forgot to post this picture off the new engine internals
    (1 set is for the nova )





    I want to use an E-throttle so I had to do something with the Inlet/Throttlebody.
    So I purchased a new inlet plenum and have it made to fit an VW E-throttle body.
    The new inletmanifold should be here within a month or so.

    It should look something like this, only black ceramic coating and a different TB:
