    bigger engine doesn't necessarily mean faster car at all. I have a 2.2 litre Zafira and a Zafira GSi or VXR will beat me commfortably and they have 2.0 engines. The Corsa VXR has a smaller engine still, a 1.6. It dependsa on whether it's diesel, petrol, normally aspirated, turboed, supercharged etc etc etc.

    There are also 2 types of 2 litre diesel engine, the 2.0 Di (engine code X20DTL) and the 2.0 DTi (with engine code Y20DTH). the DTL has a low pressure turbo and runs 83bhp (more torque than your 1.6 8v though) and the DTH has a higher pressure turbo and intercooler setup, running 100bhp. A simple remap or tuning box on its own will take the DTL from 83bhp to 110-120bhp and the DTH from 100bhp to 140bhp.

    I've had both types of 2.0 Diesel engine and the 1.8 petrol (Z18XE) engine, the petrol is far more refined and a nicer drive.

    oh and just as an aside, I struggle to understand your original post, do you really need so many line breaks and so little punctuation?
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    9 Years, 7 Astras, 1 Zafira, No Regrets.

    in other words NO

    0-60 is quoted as being 8.3 and max of 129mph

    These will probs be for the hatch models though Id imagine the van being a lot heavier therefore slower again

    Even the 2.0 Turbo used in the VXR is 6.2/152mph so no idea where your figures came from

    Good luck in the pursuit of speed and bullshit and bravado bhp figures
