    Z20 Net

    Was looking at my brothers Vectra SRI-Turbo again earlier and noticed that it's the Z20 NET ... having a closer inspection I noticed it has a reverse cylinder head and also a larger intercooler than a Z20LET ... yet only gives 175bhp .. surely this engine is designed to give out more power, I was wondering why it wasnt used for the VXR ... and what the differences (except compression) it has from the LET.

    Hi mate the Z20net engine is a sabb motor but it is detuned from 204bhp to 175bhp but can made back upto 204bhp by reprograming the ecu with a BSR reprogrammer box which i think is around the £500 mark if you have a look on www.bsruk.co.uk or www.vectra-c.com thay will be to tell you more. its a very nice motor as it is. my dad has got the vectra c 100edition turbo

    So it is detuned then .... thought so. Seemed a bit low on power. It's like a nice engine though very smooth at power delivery
