    Default 2.2 DIRECT tuning options?

    Hey, I love the 2.2 Direct engine, smooth as silk, and quiet frugal for a 2.2. but considering its a 2.2, a little underpowered IMHO.

    Its obviouse to me that these 2.2's are tuned for economy, what can one do to " unlesh the beast within? "
    Thanks

    Not much on the direct i'm afraid. Filter ,zorst and remap. More and more avenues are opening for the slightly older none direct and the engines are basically the same with only head and fueling mods. You may be able to fit the 2.4 inlet manifold, remove the balancer shaft, larger or flowed throttle body and fit cams. With this little lot you'll get over 200bhp out of the none direct, and with the direct being about 10 more bhp over this you should see some good numbers. Pop over to the 2.2 forum (z22se.co.uk), Vocky has all his done to his 2.2 and most other guys are following suit. HTH
