L - M was Pre eco-tech

Late M - N ecotech

Both pretty much the same engine, Pre ecotech has plastic inlet manifold whereas ecotech had a ceramic 1 and 3BHP less

there is K reg ones. the pre-ecotec engine take much better to engine mods, and will produce better gains on these mods compared to the x16xe.

but the pre-ecotec will have more miles, may need referb, ect. Its down to personal choice

they did do a K-reg GSI, i have seen one, i got an M-reg GSI with an august registered C16XE engine, it was one of the last ones with the C16XE, the difference in the engines aint just 3BHP, the C16XE will tune up easier, and has slightly better head design with larger valves on the exhaust side, plus no EGR system to sap power, if ya mod a C16XE its gains will always be more than on the X16XE, up to an extent,

x16xe is the ecotec lump!

c16xe is the earlier, slightly more powerful one


x16xe produces peak power or torque earlier than the c16 though
