    Hi Matthew and welcome to AS - I've moved your thread to the correct forum where you'll get a better response

    Firstly what sort of gains are you looking for, and more importantly how much are you willing to throw at it?

    well i dont mind throwing money at it, just get my plan and stick to it. I also drive a mk3 gsi, and its quite fast, when u floor it it feels rough and throws u back in to the seat and ur gone. My car when u floor it is fast but not feeling as if your being pushed bk, yet in a race my gf in my 2.2 and myself in the gsi 2.0 the gsi struggled to pass the 2.2, beating it by less that a meter.

    i was looking for info on mayb a turbo, or mods such as chips, cams. and the gains on the 2.2. Ae they a good tunable engine??, il always been ford, done engine conversions etc, kno them inside out, but vauxhall is like double dutch to me.

    The 2.2 is tunable, and in the US they have got over 1000bhp out of one in drag racing. However not many UK tuners do anything for it as they focus mainly on the zlets

    If your're looking or a turbo, then you'd be better off geting a standard turbo's car IMO

    you can supercharge it but i think that can cost you about 4k ... give regal or courtney's a tingle they will have more gen on the subject.
