    2.2 Gearbox

    Right just a little question, obviously i wont be going 150 Mph hour in my 2.2 astra, so if ( if it's even possible ) i put the 2.2 on a 2.0 gearbox, will the car accel any faster, or is the 2.0 box not man enough.

    Cos we done this on my mates 1.4 16v corsa and shoved it on a 1.2 gear box, and no other 1.4 keeps up with it off the line. (yet vauxhall told us the dear box want hardy enough).

    Has anyone done anyhting like this?.

    which 2.0 gearbox?

    some 2.0 came with the F23 that your 2.2 has so you wont be achieving much if anything.. mainly boils down to final drive on each g/box - other 2.0 models had F18 fitted

    have a look here for some info that may be of use

    you'll have to get round the fact that the starter motor is in a different place on each engine.

    2.2 is on the front and 2.0 is on the back, so it's not really viable

    cheers mate

    looking at that, there is no point. Especially if there is only the final drive difference. And it wont work cos the shape is different.

    Well at least that was cleared up nice and quick
