    Oil Spray bars

    Guess what high performance vauxhall engines have oil spray jets for piston cooling in?

    Vauxhall Combo van TDi engineslmao Also turns out that the turbo diesel big end bearings (2.0) will fit an LET as well
    Sir, please step away from the car

    That's all well and good Rob but to be honest, I wouldn't go anywhere near my engine with oil spray bars. The trouble is they can get blocked, or worse still if they spray the oil at the wrong angle they can cause a build up of cack on the piston which ain't gonna be too clever. That's my expert opinion on the matter m8.

    Hmm well thats cos they were designed as part of the engine, aftermarket add ons don't always go to plan

    Phil all 2.0L vaux engines (diesel or petrol) have the same journal size so they are all interchangable! Anyway was told to leave the LET ones in place as there more than adequate
