Not seen a Ecotec in a Chevette, I have seen one in a Ascona. Think that the main difference between a XE and a Ecotec was the emissions bits in the head and exhaust manifold ( EGR valve ? ) if memory serves me right. The 2.2L Ecotec is taller than a XE.

 Any of the early Xe or Ecotech engines can fit ok using either a Carlton or Sierra gearbox. The small block ones easier than the large block ones because of the oil filter position. The later engines ZEP etc have a different head which is longer at the rear and inconvenient water plumbing arrangements.  The good thing about using a MX5  engine is that it is a complete unit (engine, box and electronics) which makes things a lot simpler! -Scotty

Thanks guys . I've picked up a complete vauxhall omega car with an ecotec 16v 2.0, i have removed the engine and gearbox and bought a red top sump, on removal of the sump i have found this griddle type thing under the sump and the red top modified sump that i have is not deep enough to fit with this griddle thing in situ. Do i have to keep this griddle thing or can i dispose of it.I can make a new sump if necessary which will be deeper so i can retain the griddle thing. Any thoughts. TIA

Its a block stiffener which is used on high performance engine to stop main bearing flexing in extreme conditions.  I wouldn't have thought it would be necessary in a light car like a Chevette.  Also known as a Gorrilla Girdle in the States.  I would bin it as you need all the clearance you can get over the crossmember and anti roll bar.
