    Default Engine type

    A while ago I posted if anyone knew what engine I should have in 2006 Vectra SRI 1800. Thoughts were that it should have been vvt.But having seen pics on here of vvt showing oil cap at top RH end of head I questioned this in my head. Been out looking for some info in engine bay and located stamp on Head of z18xe,my oil cap is on LH side of head. So now thinking mine has the lesser powered 123BHP motor.

    VVTI 1.8 XER code engines have the oil filler on the back right as you face the engine so would say that you have the pre VVTI motor, theres a few on ebay to compare .

    Not at all. 2006 First Edition 'New Vectra' (facelift) brochure shows the 1.8 as having the non-VVT engine. And full-time Traction Control on all models except the 1.8. Exactly as on the pre-facelift.
