    i have the same motor ! i've done panel filter and airbox mod ! these engines are expensive to get alot more power from but i would suggest swaping the induction for the same set up as mine then get her chiped and a sport exhaust fitted !

    Got a 2.2sri direct 05 reg. BMC Panel filter and airbox mod,run octane booster through the fuel,and cruised at 140mph in Germany.
    Like me it may be fat but it carries its weight well

    Happy to prove it to anyone on an autobahn that has no restrictions,
    However your paying for the next trip

    Once moving my SE goes well, as benny said its just a bit to fat and hence takes a bit getting there.
