    Not had a vec but from my saab 2.2 see if the turbo pipes have been uprated as if not they will go. Also not sure how you would check but there is a problem with the fuel running back into the tank when parked on a hill. Other than that my 2.2 was faultless

    Good engine, more reliable than the cdti's. Mine has 118,000 on it and does on average 48mpg and I've got a heavy foot.

    It looks a good buy that. I used to have a 2.2 dti sri vec b and it didnt break down over 18 months. It never got 60 mpg like he claims though- more like 39 on mine.
