    Default z32se history

    I was wondering if the z32 lump was made in conjunction with any other manufacturers. It just seems extremely uncommon for a car manufacturer to build a engine with limited use i.e it only went in vectra and signum for about 3 or 4 years. If it was built in conjunction with alfa or audi, both of there 3.2s are more powerful and we could possibly look at fitting some of there parts (an alfa intake manifold would look sick)

    Can't answer this but an interesting question, something I've always wondered as well. Some of the early M3's were 3.2's IIRC and they produced more than the Vectra but that was a straight 6 though (I think).

    Here's hoping someone has an answer.

    I don,t know of BMW ever using V6 engine. But I would say for the Vectra 3.2 V6 209 BHP is not a lot for an engine that size most other 3.2s churn out a lot more power. Why VX limited theirs to 209 bhp I don,t know.

    It also came out in some U.S. cars but not for long. It was based on the 2.6L that came out in the veccy b. It was pointless keeping it once the 2.8 turbo came out unfortunately.
