I'm frequently wrong about engine stuff, so correct me where needed.
The Frontera GVW is 2400kg. The 2.4 moves it along fine. Struggles a bit on hills when towing a laden car trailer as would any machine.
Had a look on old Electronic Parts Catalogue from my Opel Dealer days. The same part No is used for camshaft in C24NE engine in Frontera and Omega. Kat no 636005 part No 90299177.
I would guess there are different engine ECU set ups for each though which would effect driveability. I recall swapping an ECU from an Omega A fitted with OHC C2.0NE into a Vectra A C2.0NE some years back. The improvement in acceleration in Vectra was very noticeable.

If a hammer doesn't work, Don't force it.
The BASE Cams are as noted here in this picture, and marked.
BUT there are variations is each cam ( as noted by the casting numbers to the back of the from journal ).
At least in regards to the post 1984? cams that no longer used the groove on the Cam journal.
I found a 2.0E cam ( Cast with a 8 & stamped with an R ) - I plan on doing its numbers as well.
I also have another 2.0E block in the garage with the cam still in it, One of the two maybe a i200 cam.
But unlike catalogs, and assumptions based off old charts ( that are known to be inaccurate on the later cams - See above ).
I have a cam dial, and a the equipment to spec out the cams.
It is known that GM may have a single part number for a "replacement" part, BUT the replacement part is an "average" part.
The parts for specific cars and applications could vary ( Thus the color coding, and cast numbers on the cams ). To accommodate specific emission regulations, etc.

Same is true for Bosch computers for certain makes and models. For the Omega and the Frontera 2.4L motors there are 4 different computers with 4 different computer parts numbers. ALL four cross reference to a SINGLE Bosch part number, that also includes different makes and models. The replacement parts only have to work, so in some cars you get improvement in some you may see a slight loss of power or emissions. But ALL will get you running, and within tolerance.
In short, the specific cam/ecu/etc... in a specific year, make and model of a car are dialed in for that car. The replacement parts are often not.
