    Thought the VXR's were Z20LEL (???) and the internals were different, ie hardend pistons.

    Actually can some1 right down the diffrence between the two?

    Can't be LEL, has to be a LET. As the T in LET stands for Turbo.

    a Z20LEL would be turbo-less.

    This is in-accurate.

    I can't remember the full code - but there is not T in it for the VXR.
    Me run tings.... not tings run me!

    Unless Vauxhall have changed there way of coding there engines. It will have a T as the third letter of the suffix.
