    Default What con rod for 2.0 dti?

    I have bent a rod on my 2.0 dti (second from left) and am looking for a second hand replacement. I've seen many on eBay advertised y20dth vectra, Astra, zafira etc but they all have 4 valve seats on the piston that's attached to it and say there for a 16 valve. My engine is an 8 valve but the same engine code. Will it fit? Ta

    It should fit.

    But you could always knock pin out an literally swap con rod an use your piston

    That way should still be ok as wear to bore an rings should match still

    Yeah I'm using my original piston it's just how they seem to be sold. I can't find one that doesn't say 16 valve. Which is what's putting me off. I just want a second hand rod but they only list the part numbers for the pistons. It's a 53 plate 2.0 dti signum.

    Thats how the DTI is m8, each cam lobe opens 2 valves.

    As deano1 mentioned,the 2 ltr DTI is 16 valve.
