    Default 2.2 Direct has just got QUICKER :-/

    Very strange this..
    Owned the car for a year its on the 07 and over the last 2month the car has got stupid quick

    Ive had many 2.2s in the past but it feels more than the 155bhp.

    Ive heard of 18s been put on the roller and coming out with 150bhp, is it possible that the vec acutally has more than the 155?

    The other day i was playing with a megan sport on short runs to round abouts and he couldnt get away...

    or is this a sign that my fuel pump is over fueling and about the brake??

    Ive never once seen any diffrence from having a proformance air filter or exhuast... Maybe de-catting it? Its quick and pleasing enough, but i dont plan on having a vectra for the rest of my life, got my eye on my next motor already
