    Is it worth 1.8 to 2.2 change

    I have a 1.8sri and was looking at the local VXL garage. They had a few 2.2's and 2.2coupes. Now I know the 2.2 is probably a lot better engine but is it worth changing now as i already have a 1.8?

    i have gone from a 1.8 sri, (written off in an accident) to a 2.2 sri, the performance is pretty damn good! even tho i had a cat back exhaust on the 1.8 the 2.2 still feels a whole lot quicker! i find myself going round roundabouts in 4th and 5th and the engine doesnt mind, even at 1000rpm it still has poke!
    if i was u i would get a 2.2 as they r cheap!, it seems nobody wants them because of the high insurance group!
