    Default New Vectra 120bhp CDTi engine!!!!

    Vauxhall are following the Astra's lead with the Vectra and binning the 8v 1.9 CDTi 120 diesel engine.

    From model year 2006.5 the Vectra will get the 16v 120bhp 1.9 CDTi. this is basically the same 150bhp engine with different mapping so a more efficient engine with the potential of adding the extra GG's to 150bhp.

    The engine itself will look identical to the 150bhp version.

    Couldn't agree more with above.

    If they can't get it right now, how the hell are they supposed to ensure they give you the correct car if the engines look the same.

    Matt,

    If it is basically the same engine, and just mapped down to 120, then couldnt you re-map it to an enhanced 150 map up to the 190 / 200 area?

    I would imagine same engine, smaller turbo thus different engine map.

    Like what VAG do,

    Yes you can, this is what Thurlby Motors have done with the new '888' Astra. 200bhp and 330lb/ft torque from the new 120bhp engine.

    Like what VAG do,
    Same turbo as the 150.

    Like the New Astra 170bhp turbo, this is purely the 200bhp engine mapped down to 170.

    This is an educational problem that dealers have to sort out.

    No different than the 1.8 and 2.0 Vectra's of 1995-1999, the engines all looked identical.

    But any salesman should know that the red 'Ti' indicates the 150 model.

    So the 'clever' buyer buys the 120 16v with the £500 saving
    and maps it to 200 with the proceeds!
