I wanted some opinions on the merits of a stock FI 2.2 liter vs a warmed up 1.9 bored to a 2.0 with a performance head, higher compression, header, hot street cam and 38 DGAS. I know the 2.2 is known for it's torque due to the longer stroke, but would that be enough to make up for the goodies on the 2.0?
Thanks,
James

Then should I just look for a 2.2 crank to put in my 2.0 during the rebuild? Are they available? Are the rods different also?

WOW! YOU GUYS ARE AMAZING!!
I'm just an old shade tree mechanic that wants more power.


I may be stymied on my latest boondoogle, however, as Gil just wrote and has sold his last 2.2 crank. Another option is that he does have used 2.2's. I just can't decide which way to go, (build a hot 2.0, built 2.2, stock 2.2 Euro, 2.4*, or engine swap). Of course, money isn't unlimited so sanity must apply.
