    Question 120 or 150

    HI all.
    I am probably not the first to ask so apologies. I am just going to buy the timing belt kit, and i have a slight confused look about me right now..

    my car is supposed to be a Signum 1.9 cdti 150BHP. The logbook says Signum elegance cdti 150. the problem i have is that the engine type on the vauxhall card inside the service book says Z19DT, and all the timing belt kits that refer to that say 120BHP,

    Can anyone validate for me. its a 54 plate Sept 2004 car.

    thanks all

    Rik

    OMG, based on the pics its 120 then. gutted. are we absolutely sure on this. if so i will change my insurance asap. how can this car go thru its life on dvla/road tax as a 150.
    would the emissions not be differenct on a 120 to a 150.. am i paying to much tax, on top of too much for the car perhaps as i thought i had bought a 150 due to log book

    my filler cap is on the left

    cheers all

    thanks everyone for the respones...

    i spoke to vauxhall, and they took the reg, then quoted my VIN and engine numbers, and then said its a 150.
    I explained, the filler cap location, and that the general belief is cap on left/right = 120/150. Away she went, then came back and said 120.
    So they havent got a clue then, they have regitered it as a 150, but could be a 120.
    is there any kind of test (torgue, compression etc) to confirm??

    thanks all
