Are you referring to the Z20LET (2.0 16v ECOTEC turbo) which is in the mk4 Astra Turbo, etc. ? If so, then yes they are less powerful than the older C20LET.

I am confused as you lot about this. My mates 95-M Calibra Turbo has the redtop (well its got a black top but has Vauxhall written on the spark plug cover), but Cavalier was also a M-plate but it had Ecotec written across it.

No, it looked like a C20LET as it had the plastic cover bit at the back of the engine with "Turbo" written on it.

My brother's old M reg Cavalier was a 2.0 16v ECOTEC, same as the ones used in the Astra/Vectra/etc... That engine was the X20XEV.

The turbo version of that engine (Z20 LET) looks the same as the X20XEV but has a black pipe thing going over the rocker cover to the exhaust manifold I think.

Ha ha, its ok Lee, i dont mind really. Give me practice anyway

Im hoping it to be running at about 150-155bhp. Anything over would be a bonus. Although, tbh, at the mo, im not worred about figures, its just sooooo much fun

Whole convesion cost me around 1500 in total. LM Styling (Lee Mitchell's company ) done ti for me. 1 week after work and at the weekend. Very smart as well. He's done a well tidy job, and i'd reccomend him to anyone!!!!!
