    As said above so much easier to buy one, but yes you could put the 3.2 in there, not sure exactly what needs to be changed, but I'm sure it will be a fair bit and the cost will mount especially if a garage is doing for you.

    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Default

    Engine change, almost the entire wiring loom, most ECU's, front suspension because of the change in axle weight, brakes upgrade to give the better stopping power for the more powerful engine and that's just off the top of my head.

    Anything's possible if you've got the money to do it, but it would be cheaper and a LOT easier to just buy a 3.2

    Pretty sure with everything being tied and coded to the ECU, you'd end up changing most of the car.

    Cant you bolt on a turbo for a 2.2, as the z22se is quite similar to the z20net (I think?).

    Try doing a search on HERE
