    SO ???? Nothing that cant be overcome with some imagination, Vauxhall have to work within a scope

    I wouldn't put this one in a Vx220 personally, however it is running in a car now, just with the boost slightly down due to the lean mix. A trim of this model will easily go into the Vx

    Hmmm...stick that in a 2-door Chevette, now that'd be a flying machine.

    Sounds like a nice bit of engine spec there. Is there much point in putting that engine in a car that doesnt have a 4-wheel drive system. Getting the power downs going to be a bitch.
