    Default How do I get more blood from a stone?

    Hi Guys

    I have been mulling this over for a while now. I would like more power from my Vectra but I don't really see how.

    I have a vec Facelift 2.2 Direct (Y22YH Engine), so far I have installed a air induction kit.

    Talking with a few people who have said the same thing, No point in doing a Remap, wont get much. I understand that but is there anything else I can do.

    A supercharger has been mentioned, I like the idea but from where?

    Any suggestions?

    10-15bhp gain across the range would be noticeable and worth doing imo.
    I am fairly sure that is around the expected gain on a 2.2direct map
    It is just whether you think the price is to high for that much gain.
    I looks like you have little choice other than a map anyway if you want to squeeze a bit more out of her.

    Wrong engine. That's for the z22se (the 2.2 non-direct). John has the z22yh (2.2 direct).
