So i have a interest in $2.20 180s they fill fast, soft fields, and usualy take 1 hour 45 minutes to Win. I am doing decent in them at the moment but can always get better anyone have any tips???
If it's not broken, don't try to fix it
Seriously though, if you have a decent winrate at those, no real need for advice, is there?

"I'm doing decent at them" implies that you have a grasp of how to play them already. Really, without any more info there's not much specific we can say without running the risk of being repetitive.
Basically, play tight and let exploit the mistakes you see in the plethora of bad players.

Yeah i have done ok in them. I would agree with the lads here and say it sounds like your doing good already. Each tourney is different and its hard to advise about MTT. I am knew on here so i don't know whats been said. My experiences with these tourneys are to keep an eye on number of people left in. I always play tight at the start of any MTT. Then with these particular tourneys i i like to get aggressive if possible from around 50-35 remaining depending on how well your doing already. Then i go very aggressive at about 27-19 because there are some people who are scared of losing and going home with nothing. I think that winning $4.40 is close to nothing and will not keep your bankroll happy for long you have to finsih in the top 5 1/12 times to make it profitable. Then at around 18-9 i keep it simple still been slightly aggressive but sitting back and letting people go out before hitting the final table hopefully. Still almost every time raising in correct position etc though.. because of the blinds been 1000/2000+ante pot is about 4/5k so its important to keep the pressure on. I never over raise and i never put a bold raise in because the chances of somebody coming over you and then having to call is much higher with people wanting to make moves to win the tourney anyway. From 9-1 i like if i have 40k+ i raise more often than not until reaching about 70k ish usually only takes about 3 preflop raises max with the blinds+ante. then take it steady and keep it TA for 5 mins or so until it gets down to last 5 then simply just keep the pressure on. If i was short stack going into the final table which i have been before i would keep it very tight. Waiting for a good hand. I won't try and steal anything on the button or any play like that because it will be an instant call usually and then i could be going out. That is just my experience i did do quite well from them in the last month or so. Haven't played any for about 13 days though cos i blew my full bankroll stupidly from a lack of control on some high stakes cash games lol. Take care hope this helps.
