    Which Engine?

    I have a 1999 Astra mk4 1.8 16v, I'm curious as to which engine it is that this astra has. I checked on the 1.8 engine guide on the forum but it only has the z18xe enigine which is 125bhp standard or the astra H engine, and I'm pretty sure mine isn't the z18xe engine as i know my car is only meant to put out 113bhp as standard.

    Is the z18xe fitted to the SRI and SXI?

    Am i right in thinking that my engine will be the x18xe?

    Cheers

    X18XE was a big block motor and fitted to the Astra F amongst others

    it looked similar to that of the X20XEV as used on Astra F/G etc

    Heres an example of the X18XE big block
