In the UK, I wouldn't bother pissing around with doing anything on a 2.6 nowadays. Throw in a 3.2. And then consider further (limited) options.

Not sure if OP can get engines as cheap as we can in UK.


I briefly had a 2.5 with 3l G cams and Superchips chip, and it was hugely disappointing. And clearly fragile ;D

Euroland arguably get a better choice of engine as far more GM brands are/were available than we got ;)

Someone could make me a remap for my 2.6 with the 3.0 map?

You could retro fit 3.0 ecu, loom, sensors and throttle cable/pedal from a 3.0...

Or fit a 3.2 ::)

But 3.2 is low compression ratio too and 3.0 is 10,8:1, its run fine?

The 2.6/3.2 are self learning ecus, so there's not much to do with them.

Are your current problems on lpg or petrol?

But nothing remotely useful beyond the 3.0l V6 (the best Omega engine by some margin)

As is any 1990s ECU.

Fault needs eliminating on petrol. The LPG will bugger up the trims, then you're fighting a moving target.

Do you think that going with 3.0 engine and 2.6 electronic favors the failure to appear?

The v6 is a great lump, and makes very satisfying progress,  but (unless you go to huge extremes) it will “never” be a Performance car.

In my view the 3.0 cam upgrade to a leaser engine is not worthwhile and I’m sure there is an element of snake oil effect.

So much is about maintenance too. My 200+ k mile 2.6 saloon, hands down beats my 3.2 on the ‘box and drivetrain to Name a couple ;y
