    Engine Type

    Hi,
    Just wondering if any1 can confirm where i can look on my car 2 get the engine type, There is a sticker on the top of the front grille that says Z20LEL, but just wondering if there was anywhere more official, Ive looked in the log book and on the pillar post plate on the drivers side but nothing there.

    Cheers

    Astra H -1.8 SRI

    The Astra H Sri Turbo did in fact use the 170bhp version Z20LEL so the info you already have is correct

    it "may" be on a barcoded sticker on the timing belt plastic cover

    but in all honesty, why do you need to know?

    A quick remap from the big tuners will have it up in the same league as the LET and even the LEH engines and beyond if you so wish

    I know for a fact it aint a turbo, and was wondering coz i was thinking about getting a Dbilas manifold to give it an extra bit of power under the bonnet and the only place i can find anything is on the top of the grille which doesnt fill me with confidence if u think that the Z20LEL is a Turbo

    post a pic of the engine and ill tell u what it is

    if its not the 2.0T then it'll probs be the Z18XE or Z18XER 1.8 VVT

    just had a look at your other threads and 1.8 was mentioned - you should have mentioned it in this thread

    anyway, have u looked at ur car pass as mentioned above? should be on there

    what about the sticker i mentioned above as well?

    thats definitely the Z18XE mate

    the VVT version XER doesnt have a plastic engine cover like you have - but more of a standard looking rocker cover with a removable spark plug cover like on the big block engines
