    Default 2.2 petrol or 2.2 deisel??

    Hi guys, looking to upgrade my 1.8 as I dnt find it fast enough, 120 bhp

    what do you guys sugest, the 2.2 dti is 125 bhp but would a remap make it faster than the 2.2 petrol? and if I remapped the 143 bhp 2.2 what would that achieve.

    cheers

    Danny

    I have a boxed 2.2dti with 155BHP, i think it would be very capable of keeping up with a standard 2.2.

    Even as standard a 2.2dti is a fair bit quicker than a 1.8 petrol. Vx stated it as having 125 bhp but most have upwards of 135BHP

    The DTI will have alot more torque, and as John says, alot of 'em are above 135BHP! But to be honest, I think the 2.2 petrol won't be the "fast" you're looking for mate! I'd say go for the 2.0t!

    But the Dti is only a group 8, and it'll do 50 to the gallon on a long trip

    Oh and the tax is only 155 note a year too
