    Default 2.2 tuning there may be hope

    I was reading total vauxhall and the article on the blue 2.2 astra. notice in the tech spec that theguy has an EDS ECU remap so i'll be on the phone to regal tomorrow morning to see if theres one avalable for the c.

    No performance figures given but guy had a re map, cams, hkr plugs and the map so i reckon there should be some stuff for the c 2.2 soon

    am i right in thinking its the same engine as fitted to the VX220? if so, theres loads of tuning bits already available.

    What you need Graeme is someone who's developed a turbo conversion for the 2.2 or even a supercharger . Mind you, you'd need a bag full of cash aswell.

    Big Phil's been looking for his Twin Turbo conversion for his GSi , so maybe he's come across something.

    The vx 220 engine sits differently so the supercharger cannot fit into the C engine bay, they were still developing, or were when I asked about it a year ago, It is certainly on my future shopping list ......

    Have a read through this thread:

    http://forum.vectra-c.com/showthread.php?t=3719

    A chap called ChippedUK is offering a live remap for the 2.2 for £150, reckons on around +12hp.

    Gonna have mine done after the silly season is over, if you are still looking then, i'll let you know how it goes.

    Theres loads avalable for the veccy b and astra but not much for the c.
    i'd like to go wild in future. would cost a fortune but i'm sure my granny wont mind me selling her or me folks getting put in the home and their hoose flogged!
    i'd get
    - supercharger
    - turbo
    - dbilas inlet manifold (+23bhp)
    - hi lift cams
    - lightened flywheel
    - head skimmed
    - sports cat
    - software re map

    then we'd show these pesky deisel kids how its done lol
    (though we'd have paid a good 10k lmore)

    or i could just trade in for a vxr......


    (disclaimer - no grandmothers were sold during this thought process and my folks house is still secure with no retirement home just yet)
