    Z16se

    Hi

    A colleague of mie bought a 2002 astra with a Z16SE engine..

    Does anyone have any numbers on this engine ?

    I know it's 85BHP but what about Torque ?

    Is the gearbox on the Z16SE and the Z16XE the same or does the 16v engine have a different gear ratio ? (Especially fifth gear)

    Specifically he bought this car to go to and from work every day. A roundtrip of about 130 Km's of motorway with a speed limit of 130 Km/h .. Would he have been getting better MPG if he had bought a Z16XE 100 HP or Z18XE 125 HP variant ?

    Will the Cruise control guide in the techincal section also apply to his car/engine ??

    What is the official MPG/KPL for this car ?

    Is there some sort of comparison chart between the different engines in the astra.

    Is it true ?

    I thought that it was the Z that was the determining factor in cable vs FlyByWire ??

    In my own zafira the change between cable and FBW came when they changed the engine from X18XE to Z18XE ???
