    Exclamation 2.2 16v Tuning...

    All info from: http://www.regal-shop.co.uk/default.asp

    -2.2 200 cell Motorsport CAT - £295
    ''The CAT meet cars operating OBD 1 and 2 with EURO 3 and EURO 4 emissions levels''

    So this will not make me fail my MOT (as im EURO4) and it will give me a gain in performance? (any idea's on how much?)


    -2.2 Exhaust and Inlet Manifold Kit with software - £1200
    ''Comes with a Flowtec Manifold, Exhaust manifold and specially Tailored software for the kit.+25 Bhp increase''

    Pretty self-explanitory but, do you really feel the gain in power!? is it worth over a grand? Will the Rolling Road my car to setup software or is it plug and play?

    -2.2 Performance Pack 2 - £613
    ''This upgrade package is a good place to go next, Regal Chip will increase performance by around 10BHP and give you better drivability through all the gears and cure certain flat spots''

    Will the software from the Dblias manifold kit above already have the same effect as this 10bhp chip gain?

    ''The exhaust comes with a lifetime guarantee, is a full stainless steel system, and increases power by about 8BHP. Bastuck exhausts come as a straight through system – this reduces backpressure and aids with the release of exhaust gases''

    Bastuck? now am i right in thinking this is gonna be really loud as its straight through? am i better for getting a Miltek one for instance?

    -Z22LET Flywheel - £199 (this says for astra 2.2)
    ''which due to its natural strength means we can lighten the units by 3.9 kilos to 5.65 kilo's...''

    I know a lightened flywheel will let the car rev easier, but does it increase acceleration? will this make driveabilty crap? as in when using engine to slow down, will it jerk around like mad?

    cheers for any help! chris

    P.S. are regal the best place to buy Dblias stuff from?

    I can recommend a superchip as I had one til my Ecu failed and I do now notice the difference it made . I would also like to boost my 2.2 Bhp up a bit more.

    I think a lot of 2.2 owners are in this boat. We need a bit of a boost and particularly to get rid of the lag when changing gear. Maybe this is a 2.2 group thing we can do with regal or something??

    Right lets get names down so we can get some numbers and see what regal can offer us as a club. Maybe get total vauxhall involved as well??

    ok fine forget it was only an idea but i dare say this is not the right time of year to get a group tuning session done as no one has much money! Ask Regal if they have done a 2.2 and what their opinion on the best mod is as well!
