    Astra 1.4 Ecotec

    Hi guys erm, i havent had this car long and i was wondering what engine was in it (e.g. Z20LET or C20LET) as i am looking to upgrade it. I'm fairly new to vauxhalls which is why i am querying. Also does anyone know if you can change the ecotec head cover for a stainless steel one?


    (forgot to add its a N reg astra 1.4 ecotec mk3)

    LET means turbo, so it ain't that.
    C20LET is 2L 16v turbo as found in calibra etc.
    Z20LET is Zafira i think.
    I ain't sure what yours is, do you know if its a 16V
    My mk3,117K, and the engine is still going strong
    shame about the car shell tho,lol.

    would probably be more cost effective to seel your 1.4 and buy a car with a bigger lump in it really matey
    Any info on V6 MK4 conversions greatly appreciated!
