Hi mate,

I have the same engine fitted in my Manta. The code is stamped on the exhaust manifold side of the block on the side of the surface/flange that bolts up to the gearbox. It will either be 20XE or C20XE if it's a redtop or maybe it's an Ecotec you have?

As for the swap, you will need a bigwing sump, engine mounts and a gearbox from a 1.8 Manta. The rest is pretty straight forward and all the info you will need is on this site.

Well worth becoming a club member for extra info/benefits. :thumbup

Cheers, Peter.
