    Default Newbie Question

    I have a rather newbie question, i am looking at vectra's at the moment, but was wondering what the difference between a 2.2 and a 2.2 direct? or am i just being silly as they are the same thing

    they related to how the fuel is injected..

    the DIRECT also makes slightly more power than the non-DIRECT..

    DIRECT also gets twin tailpipes... not much between them really.. but both cracking engines..

    You won't go far wrong with either of the 2.2's.

    If you're looking at tuning it then I believe the non-direct is easier to tune though.

    Yup agree with above both cracking engines, especially the Direct (I have one!)

    For info all C estates and Signum petrol 2.2s were Direct injection, rest went Direct in 2004. Also i think 2005 my onwards manuals have 6 sp box.

    Also for info Directs can have trouble with the high pressure fuel pump and regulators. But don't let that put you off!

    My very first Vectra was a 2.2 non direct. Very good car !!
