    2.2 coupes

    are the 2.2 coupes any good, what sort of bhp have they got?

    im sure alot of you have read my threads abt a coupe turbo, but theres a 2.2 coupe come up in my area for £1900 and seems too good to pass by, so just wondering what your opinions on the 2.2s are

    Yeah mate, im only 19, and like i said i wanted the turbo, but there abit too expensive to insure at my age, so the 2.2 might be the better option, and the price is too good, its a really nice example, its the bertone limited edition one aswell

    Check out Ffoeg's autobiography - he's spent ages on it, but his 2.2 edges 180bhp and around 170ftlbs...

    .... 188.1bhp and 181.8lbf ft according to JDM today

    It's a bloody good engine... but you should budget on getting the cam chain replaced regardless, unless the vendor can give you categorical proof that it's got the modified oil nozzle and tensioner fitted. If no proof either get the price reduced accordingly or walk away

    I first had a 2.2 hatch, then got a 2.2 coupe, excellant all rounder, performance is good, fuel econamy (sp) 34mpg round town and 42-44 on a good run, cheap insurance and is good looking too, just can't beat it

    only ever dealt with them when i was working with vauxhall, heard horror stories about the chains, but not heard anything really bad about them other than that, they seem quite good tbh.

    all standard 2.2 coupe's are 'bertone edition'.. that's just the level of trim. It means nothing TBH
