    Maybe conversion?

    A pal of mine has bought an Sri 2.2 Vectra but it's too hard hit. He is now going to break the car and I have the chance of his engine, as I know you can get a 2.2 Astra and thought it would probably go in easy enough. Is it worth doing? My car is a 2.0 16v Sri. Whats the difference between both engines. All I know is the 2.2 is 150bhp. Thanks for any info. Mark

    2.0 is 136bhp and 2.2 is 147 bhp. Lot of bother to be honest in my opinion to swap an engine for such small gains...

    yeah, unless you can get it done on the cheap (which you probably can!) i wouldnt bother. The 2.2 is a very nice engine, not much faster overall but more torque and a smoother drive.

    Cool, nice and simple. I will just leave the 2.0 in then. My 2.0 has less miles than the 2.2 anyway lol. I was expecting red top power like the old Astra Gsi engine . Thanks

    Not sure mate, probably leave it standard for a while, I want to lower it and put a nice exhaust on it at a later date. Some 17 Inch Vauxhall alloys like Gsi or Sri Turbo rims. It's booked to go straight into the body shop on Monday when it comes
