    basically an updated version of each respective single port engine....

    Have a read of this for some gen:

    FYI: Twinport variants have the addition of the letter "P" on the engine code to detemine twinport status...

    for instance Z12XE becomes Z12XEP, Z14XE becomes Z14XEP & Z16XE becomes Z16XEP

    If this aint enough info for ya - then do a search as its been covered a few times now.

Features EGR valve and TwinPort variable intake geometry - twin intake ports with a choke closing one of the ports at low RPM, providing strong air swirl pattern for higher torque levels and better fuel economy. The drive belt for the camshafts is wider and stronger than before, and water pump is not driven by it anymore which improves reliability. Turbocharged versions exist.
