    The 2.2 ECOTEC could stay in production ???

    It seems The 2.2 Z22SE may not be dead and buried after all, If the VX Lightening goes into production it will use the 2.2 ECOTEC reworked with a supercharger to produce 240 bhp and 305 Nm of torque.
    This will be a Z22SE variant, which for us 2.2 owners is good news. This means there is still active development on this engine!

    The Z22SE in 147bhp form is finished in Europe, although lives on in various cars in the US.

    The 2.2 lives on at AmD

    Ive currently got a 2.2 VX220 on my ramp with the engine out fitting a gas flowed head, custom Piper cams and a lightened and balanced flywheel.

    I spoke to someone at AmD about my 2.2 SRi and they said they didn't have anything for the 2.2?
    What output will the above acheive?
    What engine mods can AmD do to the 2.2?

    Cheers

    I'm lead to believe that a lot of the VX220 tuning parts won't fit under the bonnet of the Astra.

    All of the stuff we do would fit under the bonnet as its all internal.

    And we havent done a 2.2 Astra yet but that doesnt mean we dont want to.

    If your interested in any 2.2 mods email us F.A.O John Thorne.

    We are in next months Total Vauxhall btw

    I cant take any pics of the cars im afraid as I need concent from the owners of the vehicle first (legal technicality).
