Hey carnage, Im only living 60 miles away from ya!!! All the GSi Cavs and some of the SRi Cavs had the C20XE....(GSi 89 on... SRi 93 to 95?? I could be wrong) They got the ecotec after that, not sure what year though. I had a 94 Vectra GT (Cav SRi) a few years ago.... 2.0 8v. Was still quick though.
I have a 93 Vectra at the moment that has full GSi running gear and kit.... it aint running right at the minute so its not for sale yet. I`ve spent about €5000 on it over the last 2 years (I wont bore everyone with all the details!!). Im driving an Omega 2.5 V6 now.....

By the way, my friend (soon to be bro-in-law) is selling his Astra GSi (with the C20XE again) if you know anyone interested....

If you get a Cav and need any second hand parts, ask me... I have loads of stuff. You might be lucky!
