    Corsa vxr engine

    Will the corsa vxr have the same engine as my 1.6 16v twinport on a 2004 plate? I know the vxr has been tuned but i wanted to know if i could have the turbo off it? It maybe a stupid question but i cant find the engine specs or code anywhere.

    N/A converted to turbo may be a bit more than just bolting it on. Things may have to stregthened, ECU modified/changed, there may be more work than its worth!

    You were right, it was a stupid question!

    For the record, the engine code is Z16LET. The 1.6 in the astra SRiT is Z16NET iirc. It's a completely different engine by the looks of it.

    I was wrong the Z16LET is in BOTH the Astra SRiT and the Corsa VXR.
    The Z16LER or the Z16LEL are in the Corsa SRiT.
    The Z16LEH is in the Meriva VXR.
    The Z16NER and Z16NET are from the Opel Astra
