    Default Urgent help please.

    This car is breaking my heart.
    I have a Vectra C 2004 which has a z16xe engine in it, which is a really unpopular engine in the Vectra C. I cant find a Vectra C engine for it anywhere over here.....

    I know they used this engine in the vectra B Astra G and Zafaira.

    What I need to know is will the engine from the above cars marry up with the vectra C gearbox? Will I need new engine mounts or will it go in direct?

    There are a couple of z16xep engines knocking around does anyone know what the difference between this engine and the one I have?

    no not so, I Had a VEC-B 1.6 and it was a great engine, quicker off the mark than my vec-c 1.8, miles better on the juice AND it never missed a beat, it had a large K&N CONE AIR FILTER Fitted perhaps thats why it was so good??? sorry I can not help charlie with his problem.
