    Surely we had this discussion before, and it was decided that the US Ecotec 2.2 is totally different to the European one.

    Besides, who'd trust a document that has typos like the one below:

    "Also fits certain 2002 Cavalier and Sunfire equipped
    with Delphi fuel inejectors."
    2007 Metro Blue 5 door Mk5 Elite 1.7CDTI
    6th Vauxhall (4th Astra) in 10 years...plus a couple of other sheds...

    Read the introduction then ....

    "The current 2.2L version of the ECOTEC is available in the
    following vehicles:
    ● Chevy – Cobalt, Malibu and Cavalier
    ● Pontiac – Grand Am and Sunfire
    ● Saturn – L-Series, Ion and Vue
    ● Opel/Vauxhal – Vectra, Zafira and Speedster.
    The next several sections of this publication focus on
    performance modifications for the 2.2L ECOTEC engine
    installed in a 2005 Chevy Cobalt. The modifications shown
    could be performed on a number of GM vehicles."
