    depending on year of your car, it will be either Z18XE or X18XE1. 'Z' engines are fly by wire and more emissions friendly than 'X' series which are cable throttle

    make sure u put exactly the same engine in because otherwise ul have to change looms and stuff, there should be a sticker on your engine somewhere with your engine code, or ring vauxhall and tell them your reg number and they should be able to tell you
