Like taking out 4 valves. There's more airflow potential in a 16v because of less vavle interference problems. And you can get 16v long blocks for under $200. I guy at a Canadian wrecking yard wanted to sell me a good running 2L 16v for $150 US.
To get to 2.2 you have to bore 83.5 which is PAST the bore limit, and run a stroker crank. Generally not a good idea.
