and what is the difference between:
J stands for throttled performance. it only has peak torque of 196NM at 4800 whereas the C20XE holds torque at 196 for longer.
When I put in 1990 in the EPC, it doesnt list the XE, just the XEJ, so I must have the 'throttled performance' one.
any advantages that you know of 0dders to this 'throttled performance' engine whatever that means?
And for why reason vauxhall had make this engine? (C20XEJ)
I understand the reason for making c20xe from 20xe. It's for the catalyst for less polution. But the c20xej?
Who want less torque-band and for why?
I will see how it performs at the rolling road.
It's not a C20XEJ, it should be 20XEJ and C20XE for the engine codes.
mine is stamped 20XEJ
Probably are a million and one variations of some sort though knowing Vauxhall
C20XE are stamped as 20XE so thats not conclusive. all my data sheets call it C20XEJ
I probably got that from a haynes manual actually, so probably not much cop!
I'm now not sure it makes much difference at all. If we're just talking straight engines, perhaps theres just 3
Redtop with wider bearings etc
We've already established that Vaux do not seem to stamp the lumps with any continuity.
