I know about the EGR and the inlets.

But are the internals different at all?
I know the C16 has a baffled sump but does the X as well?
Anything else?

C16 has a higher compression ratio of 11.0:1 although bore and stroke is the same. i believe the exhaust valves were larger on the C16

X16XE is the Vauxhall labelled one, and C16XE is the Ecotec labelled one? Is that right?

So the C16XE (Vauxhall) is the early one, and the X16XE (Ecotec) is the later one?
