    Diff between X16se and Z16SE

    Right, trying to get my head round all these codes, but it aint working lol
    So, i need a new lump, current engine Z16SE, 2002 Astra 1.6 8v multipoint with factory LPG conversion.
    Now i find x16SZR no probs as they are SPi, easy to tell, however then i find a X16SE which to me looks identical to a Z16SE!!!!!!

    No such engine as X16SE (certainly not in UK GM models)

    the one in the link is a Z16SE

    No contradiction to your observation of that exact engine in question now

    According to a few sites, X16se's are for automatics, how true that is i ain't sure

    But there are a few offshore ones like you said

    Is the X16SE a corsa engine? According to autodata it is anyway

    either way irrespective of other engines

    the one in the ebay link is definitely a mpi Z16SE

    seeing as that is the reason for this thread then thats all the info needed

    ive already mentioned X16SE wasnt used in UK models but its irrelevent anyway in this exact instance

    C16SEL, C16XE or X16XE were used in corsa B

    woah!!!!

    i never said anything one way or the other

    i was just trying to explain in a matter of fact way so the original poster knew 100% it was the Z16SE - my previous reply was to round up and aimed at the OP - not at yourself

    If u mis-read my reply then apologies but Ive learnt to just be straight to the point on here - save confusion - if ppl think im bein arsey then so be it

    guys , a big thank you as this was driving me nuts. As long as it'll fit, thats allthat matters to me. It's a work horse on its 3rd engine (you wouldn't believe it if you saw it) and as long as it'll work in the Z16se hole, then bob's my uncle.
    cheers
