Vauxhall XE, Ecotec
Another engine we have been involved in for
years and is a big favourite of ours for its brutal power and
torque delivery is the 16v 2.0L Vauxhall. Well what we can say
about this engine apart from at the time when we were involved
building and developing them they were awesome. With fantastic
racing reliability on the track in their day they blitzed the
We built and fitted a genuine 260 + bhp engine
into a Caterham 7 many years ago and it just blew us (and everything
else) away. On a hot day with massive and sticky ACB 10’s
we could not get any traction. Even in 6th gear at some 100+ mph
the tyres were breaking away as soon as you applied the throttle
hard. Wow… Even today we have
not driven any Caterham 7 witch had the brutal power delivery
of that car.
Having lots of proven specifications for this
engine and a vast stock of proven performance parts we will always
be happy to be involved with this engine.
Some cars that we have built and fitted these
engines in are Caterham 7,s, Astra GTE and single seaters.
