    2.0 & 2.2 SRI Specs

    Hey guys. Just taking a look at which Astra to buy over the next couple of weeks and will choose either the 2.0 SRI or the 2.2 SRI.

    Can anybody tell me the specs of the two? Which would you go for?

    I'm not being funny, but you can spec whatever you want there.

    I would have the 2.2 personally, as I believe the 2.0 isn't much better than the 1.8 SRi

    I had the 2.0 and it was a good car but the new 2.2 is quicker and has a service interval of 20,000 instead of 10,000. Which makes it cheaper in the long run aswell!

    The 2.2 does come out well nice when specced up.

    Can get some good deals now with the release of the mk5

    Vauxhall says 0-60 is 8.2! That can't be right...can it?

    147ps@5800 rpm (bhp?)

    The 2.2 is about 145bhp. Around 8secs is not far off. Dont forget that vauxhall quote the Turbos as 7secs 0-60

    My old 2.0 did it in 8.5 (136ps) So that is about right. Did you think that was too fast or Slow?

    Ah! So inaccuracy is their policy then? I'd be throwing mods on it left right and centre.

    I just want something that will get rid of those annoying Corsa & Saxo drivers (no offence to anyone). I suppose it will do that then?

    The 2.2 is a fairly new engine over here. I know alot of the tuners can get good gains, but they are not cheap !!

    If you want big power cheap then get a Coupe Turbo - or a GSi !
