z22se options

Discussion in 'Tuning Discussion' started by gynge, November 20, 2017.

  1. Hi, a question often asked, what can I do to my z22se?
    I'm planning on two different engine projects.
    1: My daily z22se in m Vectra. I have an cat backsport exhaust, and planning some kind of cold feed induction filter. Can I do more in a simple way? I it easy to find a 2.4 manifold in GB?
    If I can find z22yh pistions, will they add anyything? As I understand, it will increase the compression.

    2: An engine for my old chevette(kadett), I'm dreaming of an z22se with SC, and 200 bhp. I've already found an engine from an Vectra B, is it just to buy a kit from USA, and then remap the original ECU?
    Does it happens that SC set comes up for sale in GB?

    The balance shaft delete kit, where to buy that. I can't see it anywhere.

    Hope some one will take the time and help me. I have read a lot, especially Vocky and evocarlos treads, but I'm still in doubt. And even more in doubt about where to find things, because I'm not british.

  2. I know of a 2.4 inlet manifold for sale, it is £100. They do come up for sale every now and then.
    Increasing the CR to 11:1 makes good NA power, not ideal for SC

    Even a basic GM cobalt SC set up should give 230bhp, the SC kits also come up for sale every now and then, but not often. Usually they fetch £1200 - £1500 in the UK
  3. that's the right guy to buy sc kits from.
    with that kit you will go past what bottom end in stock form can cope with. with forged rods and pistons on that kit you could see around 300bhp :)
    balancer delete doesn't need part, remove shaft and cut down then knock bearings in by 7.5mm (don't quote me on that) and re fit the ends of the shafts to carry the sprockets
  4. thanks @corsa 22se . I'll keep having a look at it. Are you running the standard ECU with a new program, or is it a stand alone system?
  5. yes, standard Z22SE ECU with VX220 software mapped to see boost.
