Additional Info: Renamed the GSi in the UK from 1990-1994. A popular conversion is to swap out the engine for a 2.0 16v engine and adding the 2.0 16v turbo engine has resulted in Nova’s destroying many fast cars down the 1/4 mile. Other models include the 1983-1989 1.3 Sport which had between 70-90bhp and was built for homologation for the Group A Rally Championship. Also a 1.4 SRi with 82bhp was built.
