    Default tuning 2.2 direct

    hi all,
    i have a question about the 2.2 direct engine:
    i want to get more power from the 2.2 direct in my siggy and was thinking of turbo or supercharging. i know there is a supercharger conversion for the older 2.2 engine (in the vx220) but is there anything available for the direct engine?
    i know it would be cheaper to buy a bigger engined siggy or vectra but i am really attached to the one i have so would like to keep it if poss.
    any ideas?

    Forget Forced induction mate, its common for the SE (none direct 2.2) like mine to get fitted with a charger but it hasn't been done to the YH (Direct) The development costs alone will kill you mate.

    The usual suspects are available for the Direct, zorst manifold, sports cat, free flowing exhaust and a map. £1200-£1500 should see you get 20-25bhp.

    Why not give Thorney Motorsport a call?

    They were featured on a TV show called Wrecks to Riches, where they did up a Cat-D write off VX220 (same 2.2 engine) and then took it to Thorney Motorsport to be remapped and tuned.
