    2.2 tigra???

    Has anyone got any idea how difficult it would be to put a 2.2 into a old shape tigra or corsa B?
    Just thought it would be something different?

    IIRC someones droped a 2T engine in there, so I'd imagine its not much harder, just a tight squeeze?

    What would be the advantage over a 2 litre apart from being different?

    Are the mounts differnt from the 2.0 ones?
    Just thought it might be a good idea with the intake been at the front making it easyer to put Throttle bodys on with a relly good cold air feed.
    very much like the Mi16 Pug 205's.

    I think the problem you will have is will be the exhaust manifold being to close to the bulkhead if it even fits at all

    Yeah, i was working round the manifold on mine and there wasn`t that much room..... quite tight in the astra if you have a good look! Thumbs up to an original idea though, would be diffrent to all the c20xe`s nocking about!
