The 1.6 16v Vectra lump. X16XEL with the dodgy shaped inlet manifold?
The corsas came with the
C16XE 109bhp engine
X16Xe engine with 106bhp
Im sure the veccy engine has less. I have a vauxhall mechanic (knows his stuff to. But does anyone know the offical figures for this in the vectra. 0-60, bhp, torque etc. I know the XEL has 100bhp, but i've just heard a rhumour that these engines are poo for modifying. The inlet manifolds are totally different, but, my mecchy says that by plugging the X16XE (Corsa) ECU in shud give it the normal 106bhp. That way i can still ditch the inlet manifold in the future (For Mantzel/or TB).
Can anyone give me any info on this engine please?
