    Default 2.2 Vectra C Turbo .....

    Anyone seen the kit advertised by Regal for the 2.2 Veccie C. Manifold, Airfilter, Exhaust with sports Cat and wait for it, A flippin Turbo + intercooler etc … Ok a bit pricey at £3900 but gives you 210bhp which is pretty damned good, hopefully the price might come down a bit, or hows about a group buy *LOL* the kit is a dbilas brand which I haven`t heard of before but they seem to do a few things for all vx`s …

    The most interesting thing for me is the development of the 2.2 engine now so we might have a few more options in the future …I`ll start saving now ....

    GM in America has been playing with this engine by adding a supercharger for their Saturn range. Maybe something will come out of the states soon.

    Dont forget you can supercharge a 2.2 as well. To my knowledge no 2.2 in the country has a turbo fitted but there is a 2.2 supercharged corsa b.

    That's a lot of spondoolies to get to 'only' 210bhp. You'd be better off, I'd have thought, putting that £4K towards a new car and tuning it. 2.0T with BSR remap will see you past 210bhp for starters, or a standard GSi.

    Edit: There is also a supercharged 2.2. Vec B - Poundy on VVOC has one.

    The 2.2 in the vec c sits so that a supercharger won`t fit, I looked at this option when I had mine, though there are a couple of na vx220`s with throttle bodies running over 200bhp ...

    I was told the Z22SE is good for up to 250bhp before you need to think about forged pistons.

    It is and includes the software/ECU progam.

    Currently the supercharger does not fit the Vectra C, there's not enough room to fit it without major rebuilding of the engine bay, I think it's because it's right-hand-drive and steering rack gets in the way.


    Yes I seriously looked into these options when I had the beast
