I think the general upgrade path for 2.2 owners is induction, exhaust and remap.

The standard exhaust and induction is very restrictive and combined with the remap should see you at about 200bhp.

I am meeting up with Peter of GSR tonight with the possibility of him producing an induction kit for the 2.2 Mangoletsi also do a kit I believe.

Commanderfish on this forum has tuned a 2.2 have a quick search and you should find it.

Remap and exhaust with induction should see you push out a good bit more than 200BHP - but the torque improvements are what you will really feel, and that is what counts.

Read Commanderfish threads regarding his 2.2 - apparently with not a great deal of money his car now flies!

Yep I've spent about 1000 and I love my car. It's got Mango's induction (200) Red Dot remap (200) and a stainless steel catback exhaust with Vortex (600).

Instead of the Red Dot remap you could get Mangos "Mod 4", which is the Mangos induction plus a change to the map regarding injection fuel pressure for 400.

I love the car. It won't beat a 3.2V6 but it's fun to drive; there's buckets of low down torque and it keeps pulling past 6000 revs.
