    same old 1.8 16v g confusion

    Hi guys,

    I'm new to the site. Been browsing for months since I got my astra 1.8 16v cd spec w reg.

    I love the car, coming from my old fiesta 1.25, plenty of grunt and does me and the missus well.

    I have been trying to establish which version of the 1.8 I have. I see I'm not the only one who's had the same problem. The card in the log book says x18xe, but I'm lewd to believe the x18xe is a large block motor never fitted to g era astra? So doi have the x18xe1?

    It's just a bit strange that it is clearly written x18xe in my log book..

    Just like to say what a good forum this is, so much info available to astra user.

    Niceone bud, thanks for that. Which leads me to the next question. It's 123bhp the correct figure for standard power output (when new obv). Or is it the 115 variation

    X18XE1 115bhp
    Z18XE 123bhp

    wouldnt really bother as its just a base figure some X18XE1 have been RR as standard with 125bhp

    Although saying that i did read a post somewhere a guy got 134bhp rr result from a standard Z18XE

    cheers for sharing that.. I'm not bothered I was just curious. Cars plenty pokey enough for me tbh. Haven't got the money for mods or anything. So unless I get a better paid job its being left standard. Beats my old fiests by miles. Comfy, spacious and a good drive.

    Cheers

    Faaak, that's a lot in one night. I'm finding the weekly petrol bill kills my pocket enough as it is.. not been driving long, around a year. Always been more into my bikes (used to photograph for a mag now and again). But needs must so had to get me a tin lid over ma head.

    Lad I used to know had a turbo nova, ended up making a feature of it in someone's front room. He was a complete numtys mind.
