    The porblem was that there were two styles of sump on the Mk3 X18XE/X20XEV, have you thoought about getting the style of sump you need and then it will fit...... Would be the best of both worlds then....

    Have you any pics of the manifold itself so I can see what style it is...
    Hey YOU See Oooour Reeegin Noooo ! Toss Yer Caber Here

    anyway i rang the local vauxhall garage and they confirmed that there ARE two styles of sump... `yippee!` i thought.but then i thought to ask if they are interchangeable....`no` he said.i was gutted again.so i`m back to square one and fleabay i guess...
