    Question My 2.2 SRI DTI

    Hi, I wounder if anybody can help? I have a 03 vectra 2.2 dti SRI and want to know if i can get anymore power from my engine. I have added 18" wheels ( that has knocked my speedo out of sink) I have also fitted a (Twin pipe) stainless steel exhust system removing the cat. On top of that i have put a pipercross induction system on the car. Other than buying a boost box is there any way the turbo can be turned up ! or is there anything else i can do? Cheers Pete

    I believe you can increase the turbo pressure slightly, but wouldn't have a clue how / who would do it for you.

    Most turbos today are only controlled by ecu, so a boost box or something like that should be the only way.
    You have fixed both in and out -air. ( Ind.kit & exh. ), next thing if you want more then a boost box should be new downpipe and upgraded turbo.

    Hi, thank's for that. I know that the turbo's can be ajusted but i am not sure how.The car feels quick at the moment but it feels like it could do with anouther gear. It seems that 5 is not enough.

    I would try and have a go at doing it myself, Unless i could find sombody who knows what they are doing. I am frustrated because i know that it could be made faster but the wife gives me grief about the amount i spend on it.
    As i said it feels better but not quite right ( if that makes any sence). Do you know if a 6 speed box will fit straight in as a replacement?

    Pete

    " Can anyone tell me how to post a photo of my car on here?
