    Did that to my 2.2 non-direct a short while ago, although the idle was 100% better at the time , that has now returned back to it's usual rubbish (guess the ecu has re-learned again!!) however the power delivery is still good with hardly any hesitancy apart the usual when engine is cold as it were. I notice the throttle body on the 2.2 direct is somewhat different to the non-direct, fo some reason I thought they were the same on both variants?
    Cheers Pete
