    It probably can be done but you'd end of spending more than it would cost to buy a car with that engine already in it!

    Yeah that! ^

    Not even the 2.2 DTI is a 'straight' swap.

    make sure the wind is blowing your way and your heading downhill maybe? Theres not a great deal you can do really. You can box it but it would put an unnecessary strain on the fuel pump and it wouldnt thank you for it. Maybe a K&N airfilter would help.

    the fuel pump is the same as the 2.2DTI so is capable of pushing 125-130BHP. i looked into it but its alot of money for not much power gain.
