    I didn't recognise the engine numbers but then, I'm no expert.

    Some second hand engines on eBay are that price. Would a Saab engine fit ok and could you use your old ecu, injecters etc.

    Those engines won't fit Vectra-Cs (or 9-3 Sports Saloons), they're Cav mk3-based 9-3 and old-shape 9-5 engines. Might fit a Vectra-B though.

    The Saab engine used in the Vec is the 2.0T which Vauxhall call the Z20NET and Saab call the B207 and as Rebellion says, they're fitted in the 9-3SS

    I had a B235 in my 9-5 Aero straight out the box it was making 258HP without any after market work these can be made to fit a Vec B but you would really need to be keen to try and get one into a Vec C it is a bigger lump than the Ecotec engines

    The problem with putting a 9-5 engine into a Vec-C is going to be lack of canbus compatibility. As the 9-5 is vectra-B based, I doubt Saab ever fitted a canbus system to it.
