    Default Last Time I'll Ask!

    I know I ve been going on about this problem a while but I think I have it sorted, after these last couple of questions, so any help on the following would be great.

    I have blown the z16xe engine in my 2004 Vec C. They only put this sh**er of an engine in the Vec C in Ireland not the U.K.

    I have been told the z16xe is also used in the zafira and the Astra G and should go straight into my car. Here is the prob lookin at the engines for sale in the uk they look different to the one in my car at the moment.

    I can see an extra box type thing on the engine cover which is connecting to the intake, is this just a catch thing or something? also there is a resevoir just under the thermostat on the uk ones thats not on my one?

    Guess what im really asking is are all z16xe engines the same? Just dont wanna buy and engine, pay for shipping and find out there are different types.....

    as none of us have them in the UK its going to be a tricky one to answer, you may have more luck asking on an astra or zafira forum..

    Good luck mate..

    Do you have a picture of what your on about. Id really expect the basic z16xe to be pretty much the same which ever country its in, maybe slight differences from car to car, but the short enigne(minus ancillaries) should be the same.

    Ah I think I see the bit your on about. If your worried I would just swap over your own inlet manifold.

    It should be, same engine, just smaller bores, think its the square plastic bit next to the idle control valve the OP is talking about being different.

    The black box is a resinator box, I have seen quite a few z16xe engines for sale around here which have the box on.

    Is it connected to the inlet manifold or just the air intake pipe?
