    confused petrol 2.2 chip !

    as most peeps who have owned the 2.2 petrol will know , they tend to have a liking for un-leaded ! i've looked through the tuning forum but could not find a bod that had had one chipped and posted the results ! its the only way i'm going to be able to keep her so could someone let me know what i can expect ! ta

    if you get a live remap you can expect to get around 180BHP..thats what Spikey got when he had the Beast remapped...

    shop around your local mappers, and decent live mapper can do the 2.2..

    it might get better, as you won't have to push the car so hard to get the performance you desire...but then you start to use the power....and then it's all academic..

    Thought Spikey got 162bhp ish?

    The Snot Rocket got silly bhp did it not?

    The 2.2 is a good engine (apart from timing chain problems) but notoriously greedy on the fuel!

    it got more than that john..it had 150 odd as standard....

    and the snot rocket...well, no one is under too many mis apprehension about it are they?..

    and most of the late 2.2 had revised spray jets to overcome the chain problems.. earlier cars where done when they returned for servicing on the quiet..
