    I think as long as it is a z22se they're the same. Only the gearbox is different. It will only be different if it's the later z22yh.

    They both have the f23 but the vectra has taller ratios. The original zaf box is good for acceleration but not very good for motorway cruising as it revs quite high but the vec box on a standard engine would struggle more to pull through the gears due to the weight difference. What revs does yours cruise at?
