    No they didn't do a 3.0v6 gsi B. They did do a 2.6v6. Pretty sure the 3.0v6 was omega's only, but can be fitted into the B easily enough.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Fairly common, but you are wrong really, VX never mass produced a 3.0V6 veccy B GSI. I doubt it was ever offered at a dealer either!

    Some people have converted their original Vectra B 2.5 or 2.6 V6 to the 3.0
    Most of these were due to premature engine failure and warranty claims
    All they then had to do was agree with Retailer Warranties that they would pay the difference, and bingo
    Uses the same engine as went into the Omega at the time
