if i am not mistaken they also came with a 3.1, so i would assume that would be a relatively easy and durable swap thier is the lq1 3.4 version of the 3.1 that put out 200ish hp, it was in a few cars in the mid 90s for the w body cars, might be a task to get to work, but would make a pretty killer beretta


Well your standard 2.2 is a manual, yeah? You're probably not going to want to go to a 3.1 automatic unless you want to do a whoooole lot of transmission work. I suggest you try and look for a 2.8DOHC engine. They're pretty generic, and fit in most decent sized cars. I've even heard of a guy putting a 350Corvette engine in his smoked out 'Rette. ;] That's best left for true grease monkies. Buutt, do what you will, eh? xD


3400. Check out www.bstuff.com to ask all your beretta questions, alot of nice people there, a community for beretta owners incase you didnt know about it yet.
