    You can alreadt get a non-VXR 2.8T unit in Signum and Vectra not sure how the engine internals differ between that unit and the VXR unit.

    A std 2.8T with a BSR remap will get you upto 285bhp. It may be easier/cheaper to get a non-VXR 2.8T?

    Vehicle : SRi


    Engine : Z22SE (2.2 Petrol)

    Year : 2004

    Mileage : 137000

    Courtenay sport are the guys to speak to but to be honest its a big no no. The Siggy 2.8 only needs a map to get it to VXR power.

    Courtenays do a conversion for the 2.2 by fitting a supercharger, they have fitted it to Astra's, Vec B's and VX220's but cant do it to the same lump in the Vec C due to the Can Bus, so a hole engine swap, well..............
