    Absolutly, when Saab was owned by GM alot of engines were shared between the two companys. I have a 2.0T and when you take the spark plug cover off it actually has Saab engraved on it.

    Not 100% sure but i think one of the 1.9's is a fiat engine, and the 3.0 an izuzu lump.

    It common practice amongst car companys to cut down the costs

    My other car. 1972 1641cc slammed beetle. On the road finally!!

    Vehicle : Vectra and a Signum

    Trim : top of the line in both

    Engine : Z18XE,Z19DTH,Z20NET

    Year : 2006

    Default

    not entirely... The 2.2 petrol is a GM engine rather than a saab engine, 2.0 turbo was the better engine that Saab made out of the 2.2. Saab have a long history of making great 2.0t engines so it was no big surprise to GM that Saab made a great job of it. Basically GM liked what Saab did with it so started to use in their other marques.... The mods and bits you will need for the 2.2 will be vauxhall/opel however some parts will be common to the saab and share the same part numbers like crappy 1.9 diesel fiat engine that Saab are also cursed with.. I think Saab don't use a 2.2 in their cars... i believe the reworked it up to a better 2.3

    Your engine will be a Z22SE mate. There's no point modding it as you wont see any returns unless you spend 1000's. As Nige said, many parts are the same as the Saab derived 2.0T but the 2.2 was never put in a Saab.

    Don't bother modding the 2.2 I had it in astra coupe form. Exhaust. Filter n map you might see 10-15 bhp.

    Save your cash n get a 2.0 T or 2.8 T.

    Although with a Harrop it'll see you to 400bhp
