    Question Vec C 2.0T & New Astra 2.0T. Same engine?

    Just a quickie? Is the New Astra sports hatch 2.0l Turbo (NOT VXR) fitted with same Saab engine as in my Vec C 2.0 T ??

    Regards....Dave

    Nope ... not the same engine. The Vectra 2.0T ( Z20NET ) is based on
    the 2.2 ( Z22SE ) engine.

    And .... Its NOT a Saab engine ... Its a Opel engine !!

    The Astra Engine is a older iron-engine. The Vectra is a newer alu-one.

    In the US the 2.2 engine is used in dragsters producing 1400hp =)

    Its a Opel engine, turboconverted with help from Saab.
    ( Since they have been making turboengines for a long time, it
    would be stupid not to use Saab for this )

    The astra engine is also easier to tune than the saab one, there are lots of tuners working on the VX engine at the moment,

    I don't think it's so much that it's easier to tune - it's that the access to the ECU is less restricted on the Astra engine. Less tuners are willing to cough up to have access to the Trionic 8 ECU in the Z20NET. That's what I've been told anyway.
