    Default 2.2 direct tuning

    Hi lads, I've got a vectra 2006 2.2 direct, although I've had alot of vauxhalls this is my first 2.2 and find it very disappointing, it just fells smothered or something can quite put my finger on it, there is a scorpion exhaust on it and I'm wondering what else you lads would suggest for it, induction kit? Remap? I really like the car but it feels as though it's missing something.
    Cheers lads

    Thanks for the advice lads, you'll have to forgive my ignorance but I'm new to this tuning lark. What's an air box tuning mod? The performance issue feels like there is a problem with air intake, although I'm not very good at the tuning side of things I've been a long distance HGV driver for 15 years and have got quite good at diagnosing problems as I've had most problems in that time.

    there is a how to for the air box mod, and you can get a K&N panel filter from the bay for about £40 inc p&p, also is your car due for a service ???

    Not due a service, but got MOT in September so was going to get new plugs, filters etc done. Is it only a new filter element I need to order or a new filter box? Again apologies for the stupid questions.
