Sorry for posting a whole thread for just this but: I have a 16 plate, 1.6 diesel (I think it’s 110bhp - correct me if I’m wrong!) Astra K sri... can anyone tell me the engine code for it?! I can’t find it anywhere!

Cheers all!

Should be the B16DTE if 110 HP

The 136 HP is the B16DTH

I have the 110HP and it's engine code is "B16DTE Opt"

Dont know what the "opt" means but maybe "optimized"....Not sure what it is optimized, compared to, though :)

Yeah and per someone on here the other day, the B16DTU is also 110 HP, and the difference should be that the DTE has Stop/Start and the DTU does not.

So your 110 HP could be a DTU, but you will know, because then it will not have the Stop/start feature.

Looks like it’s DTU then! Thanks everyone.
