    Hello there Joining on behalf of my brother!

    Hi guys and girls

    Just thought id join up for my brother as hes just traded in his astra G Bertone coupe for a H SRI 170 X PACK

    Just looking for some information as my head is in the RS world ( I drive a 340bhp MK1 Focus RS )

    But would like to get clued up on my brothers (Very nice!) new car!


    Basically firstly what is the engine code, i know the old ones are C20let

    Secondly how much would you expect to pay for a 40k service (including cambelt) And would you recommened anything else be done (waterpump?) and if so how much?


    Also what else is to be expected with these cars? Any common things?

    For example my cars 7 years olf now and ******* Ford have discontiuned the waterpumps and hey ho they are all failing now!

    Anything like that for this Astra H SRI 2.0T 170?

    Sorry for the long intro!

    Cheers All!!!

    your brothers engine is a z20lel i believe as its the 170bhp turbo hatch

    waterpump should be done along with the cambelt as you have to take the cambelt off to access the waterpump, not sure on price

    thats all i know lol oh and welcome
