    The Vectra and Astra both share the same engine, apart from the Vectra C 2.2 Direct which is a direct injection engine similar to Mitsu's GDi.

    The 2.2 is the same in the Astra, the Vectra, and pretty much the same in the Omega too - only the Omega version is trimmed for RWD use, so different water pump etc.

    The european 2.2 Ecotec is being used in the US now too thanks to GM Powertrain cutting out a lot of the dead wood from their range, and the addition of the Saab engines to the range.

    Apologies - It was changed slightly for the Vectra C, but the Vec B and Astra G are the same.
