Such a pitty these boxes are so expensive to install into the VX220. It would really compliment the 2.2 N/A engines.
Apart from the mount which could be easily fadricated what are the differences with the drive shafts Vocky?
depends where you get them from and if you can rebuild them i paid £50 for the one in the charged astra but spent quite a bit making it what it is now i just bought a corsa vxr box with 4.17fd for £35 all bearings were ok but 2nd 3rd and 4th had damage to the teeth on the syncro gears i only wanted the 4.17fd but i also have a 3.9fd box that i will make good at some point
after having the rear clam painted I noticed that the rear bootlid (engine cover) and the rollbar cover were not quite the exact colour as the freshly painted rear clam, so I have had them both painted as well
Man maths at it's best
I have also fitted a vx220 cargo net to the rear bulkhead, behind the seats. These were an optional extra from the factory and I have wanted one for many years. I had to buy the mounting clips new, due to the 'seller' of the cargo net being too lazy to remove the clips
With pretty much everything where I want it to be with my vx220 I am quite happy with it, except the ECU, which has never been quite right.
So I hatched a plan and have been gathering parts ever since.
"What do I need from a new ECU" - well I have always wanted to use individual coils (Saab B207), seqential injection (better emissions for MOT), use the original z22se Injector position and fuel rail (I was going to use the original vx220 fuel lines, but I hate the way they lap around the engine bay), plus the 60-2 trigger wheel
So I made a jig to drill the two holes required for the cam extension, due to the distance between the camshaft and drill I had to buy a 140mm long 4mm drill bit.
the two holes drilled ready for the hardened 4mm steel pins (on order, not arrived yet)
I will be using a section of a B207 camshaft for the extension required to drive the brake servo pump.
My plan is to drill a couple of 4.2mm holes to align with the 4mm pins, then drill a pair of smaller holes into the B207 section to connect to the internal oilway, thus the steel pins will be lubricated at all times
