    Default How to tell if a 2.2 is the Direct engine or not

    Is there an easy way to tell if a 2.2 engine is the Direct engine or the older type, ignoring whether or not it has a 'Direct' badge on the boot because that might not be accurate. I.e. does it have Direct written across the top of the engine or similar?

    thanks in advance

    Still a good strong lump mate, with the added bonus that the high pressure pump isn't there to fail.

    Pogos 53 plate siggy is a direct.

    Most obvious clue in my opinion would be the twin exhausts. My first veccy was a direct life, and although the exhausts were under the bumper, it still had 2 lol

    Siggy Directs came out on 53 plates but the Vec had to wait until '04 models.
