    Default 150 in a 120bhp vectra car

    Can you put a 150bhp engine in a 120bhp 2005 "55" Vectra?

    Obviously anything is possible but it near enough straight swap or a completely different set.

    I'd imagine it wouldn't be too bad, may have to change the engine loom though which ain't too bad. Z22SE engines usually have F23 gear boxes so best check what yours is.

    Personally though I don't rate them engines. Drink oil and feel very under powered for supposedly having 150 ponies, also check to make sure the timing chain and balance shaft tensioner has been done if from a vectra b

    Think he's talking about putting a z19dth in z19dt not a 2.2 petrol

    Sorry should have been more clear.

    I am talking about Cdti engines.

    Secondly can anyone recommend diesel injector cleaning companies (ones the give you a report at the end etc)?

    Only reason im asking is ive been offer a 150bph engine for next to buttons out of a vectra which did 8,000. Whilst my car is only a 55 plate its on it way back from the mooon.

    I doubt it will be a straight swap because the 120 ECU won't want to talk to the 150 engine, and if you use the 150 ECU it might not want to talk to all the other ECMs in the car, which it normally does via CANbus.
