Lotus helped develop the z16xe and did too good a job. Vauxhall had to detune it with different cams, inlet and ECU so it didn't upset the sale of the bigger engines. Very good flowing head design and widely used still today.
Some of you know this Micra already (Hoopdubs old car). It was sat off the road for almost 5 years so I grabbed it back and now I'm making it all better. Ga16de with turbo, fresh panels and body worked getting it ready for paint. Engine is in but not 100% but it runs. New suspension and brakes...
Just got her home Saturday. Blowing it apart and fitting ga16 with some fresh parts and there is also a good load of rust repairs to do. Sills both sides, cross member again, wings and general surface rust. Really was a fun car to drive!
