    Z**XE engines - do they also have dual-length inlet tract?

    Does anyone know for definite if the Z**XE engines have a dual-length inlet tract similar to the older X18XE's?

    edited: Is this based on the other thread about the inlet manifold?
    I looked at the pics and I'm sure the Z16xe doesn't have a dual length tract.

    Is that perhaps the main reason why the 1.8 sees a 25bhp improvement over the marginally smaller 1.6 then?
