    C20XE was an excellent engine at the time, but i wouldnt say it makes people drive mad, i would just say they must be bad drivers to begin with tbh,

    XE: - bombproof ....lol.... compared so some engines yes but they are far from bomb proof, for that a 20SEH would be a better bet, 123bhp from a 8v and they will be much harder to break,

    not really bad drivers just easily influenced! but the 8v isnt even in the same bracket as the xe the xe is far more tuneable and alot more responsive the 8v is abit prehistoric compared to it and i had a 2.08v gte n it blew its botom end then i bought a redtopn it was in a whole new league
