It's listed incorrectly. Some ****tard put the Z24 badging on the car to appear cool. The VIN 3G1JH12F12S232440 checked comes up as the LS Coupe, which comes standard with the 2.2L DOHC Ecotec engine.

VIN Check Results:
VIN: 3G1JH12F12S232440
Year: 2002
Make: Chevrolet
Model: Cavalier LS Sport
Style/Body: 2 Door Coupe
Engine: 2.2L I-4 MPI DOHC
Country of Assembly: Mexico

What I was referring to was the fact that alot of the time, although the same manufacturer, engines are different in looks and capacity etc....It might be just the fact that our units are covered in plastic that masks their true identity....

Not sure what you mean there, lol. I meant that the plastic, although it looks good, masks what the engine really looks like. To be honest it's more so on newer lumps, the older ones (like in your Vectra) still look like engines
