i'd say even without a remap it would be a lot faster than a 2.2.
210bhp and 295 lb/ft plays 185bhp and 170 lb/ft
diesel is approx 150kg heavier though
you'd need to factor in a few things - extra purchase price of the diesel vs the cost of the remap, air filter and s/s exhaust, and the much higher fuel bills on the petrol. don't forget that resale value of the diesel will be much better too. the diesel will probably eat the front tyres quicker than a petrol. diesel will inevitably have some problems with dpf clogging at some point unless you get it removed and remapped. a remapped 2.4 diesel would absolutely annihilate a remapped/fancy exhaust 2.2
