    Hi Scudder,

    I did my inlet manifold and swirls last year, the swirl valves are all built into the inlet manifold! yes you do need to buy the actuator as this syncs with the swirls valves when the car is first started and guttingly the old acuator is rendered useless , will try and dig out some info thats explains how it all works from the manufactures that makes the inlet manifold!

    And if your wondering, the new manifold is a new design so shouldn't get the same problem again.

    hope this helps

    if you're having a go at fitting it yourself, might be an idea to pick up the vectra haynes manual.
    seems like quite a big job to me.
    how long did it take people to change this part, just out of interest. dealers charge about 800 quid for this job so i've heard.

    The swirl valves are all part of the manifold.
    You dont need the actuator unless there is a fault with the old one, just dont actuate it manually when youve got it off..

    as the linky to the pierburg site states " Electric drive modules are capable of learning and once set up they irreversibly match the intake manifold, for this reason when exchanging the intake manifold aslo need a new module too"

    AS above you WILL be needing a haynes!

    in answer to your question of what else you will need,
    as part of taking the manifold out you will be taking the timing belt off, as i did with mine! i thought it would be best to replace it with a new one while it was off (vauxhall cost about £150 for full kit with new retainers), on the 1.9 double over head cam engine (z19dth) there are NO timing marks so the only way to change it is with a timng tool (I bought Sealey Model No VS4775 DIESEL ENGINE SETTING/LOCKING TOOL KIT - GM 1.9CDTI) about £92.
    you will need a new locking nut for the high presure fuel pump about £2
    the hayne say you need a new fuel line on the top of the enging as the connections are compretion fit and they may not seal (i bought one of these from vx about £25 when putting the car back together i decided to use the old one and had no problems so took it back to vx)
    also will need a set of pullers to remove the high presure fuel pump pulley, but all this is in the haynes.

    All in all i bought all my parts from vx with new timing belt and timing kit it cost me just over £600 but vx will charge around £1000 just to do the inlet manifold!

    in answer to the question of how long this job takes i did mine in early january in freezing cold and short daylight and it took me about 15hours but if was to do in in summer and knowing what to do i guess id could do it in about 8-10hours,i think vx will charge 5hours.

    any more questions il be happy to help.
    Darren

    this is the site i bought the timing kit from it comes in at £91.79 (maybe ebay could beat it)
    http://www.justoffbase.co.uk/Diesel-...-Sealey-VS4775

    checked eurocarparts website and it comes in at £121.35 SHOOKING

    Yes in my opinion you can use the same belt just make sure you put it back on the same way round! i only changed mine because it had over 100k on the clock and i didn't know when it/if it had been change before!
