Vauxhall X16XE 1.6 16v
. C16XE was available only in Corsa GSi, model years 1993 and 1994. C16XE was later replaced with X16XE Ecotec engine. The X16XE came in the Corsa and Tigras up until 2000 and in the Astra and Zafira until 2005. For high spec engines we prefer to use the 1600cc cylinder heads with the triangular ports that are found on the X16XEL engine from the Astra/Zafira from 1998 to 2005.
These engines provide great power for there small size and are used in many RWD applications along with FWD Corsa Nova and Astras. With much development done by SBD motorsport we have continued this process to produce a high powered and reliable 1600 engine.
Our better 1.6 engines produce 235bhp and 152lbft. With a very smooth and wide power band which is not to be under estimated for drive ability, ease on drive train and reliability.
The X16XE originaly produced 105bhp as standard and required a considerable amount of development to achieve the power of our highest spec engines.
We can produce these engines to any spec with in the range to suit the customers demands and budget. Please contact for more info.
