Judging from the initial specification I would say it isn't. In an effort to cut costs they now use a modified Opel engine. It could just be, that the old engine required so much effort to meet future emission standards, that they decided to design a new engine. In the form of the Opel ECOTEC engine they found a good basis to start from. -- Mager
