    That's a real shame buddy, do you not have any diesel tuners who could do you a custom map?

    Try here these people have one for your car model:

    I think the 2.2 was the biggest diesel in the 9-3, the 9-5 had a 3.0 V6 diesel. Once you have the 2.2 remapped you will be pretty close to the power of the 3.0 standard version.

    You can put any engine virtually into any car, there are only 2 limiting factors here - your imagination and your wallet!!

    If you really want to do this and I cannot for the life of me think why you would! Then one assumes the most cost effective way would be to buy a whole donor car, this way gearbox, drivetrain, looms, ecu etc can be made to fit the new car but it will NOT be easy.

    it isnt for now. IT's for when my 2.2l is totaled (when it has almost 350k km) thats the point where im gonna start thinking of ophanging stuff... But the idea of buying a donor car isnt bad... Although i think repairing the donor car would cost me less haha
