Is there any reason why Vauxhall use a different inlet manifold on the Astra engine to the one that's in the Corsa? They are both the same engine output wise ie. 90bhp.

I don't think there are any other differences between the two engines?

Corsa = Corsa B and Astra = Astra F (mk3) by the way...

Nope it's X14XE, it's the 1.6 that has the low output engine X16XEL.

Sam, you will probably find that the different manifold was just a revision change to make it more economical, it IS the 14XE, not XEL as everyone is saying. Only the 1.6 got the XEL variant with reduced power and increased low down torque. I dont think you will have any problems with the 1.4 in the Astra.

It looks visually different, plus no Scooby induction roar when the airbox is removed and engine is revved.

Where in this thread have I said my Astra sounds like an Impreza?

Maybe you should read what's posted in a thread first before typing out your replies.
