    I think it would be a bit to tight on space under the bonnet tbh, plus it's only cheaper if you do it yourself. Oh, and welcome to the forum :)

    I think an engine below 2.0 l will give poor response to the supercharger. Supercharger will imply a heavy load thus eating up most of the power gained...

    Not necessarily, it's all about selecting the right one, if it's too big then yes it will be more of a hindrance than help

    most pug engines have been supercharged by someone, I don't know which engine he has, so I can't give a definitive answer

    Look up dp engineering mate, they specialise in turbo conversions for Peugeots so is a place to start.

    If you have a noisey tappet then it needs adjusting, changing the oil won't hurt the engine, just make sure you use a good quality oil thats the correct grade

    The bottom pulley on the HDi is a common problem for them

    Just buy a genuine Peugeot part and you'll be fine else you probably will end up bining a lot of patent parts...

    I got rid of the car altogether and went back to the celica and the 206 gt .It was a fast diesel and a miser on fuel .

    That's up to you my friend, I'm sure you had your reasons for the switch.

    Ya its the 136bhp the wrc version very rare in ireland only 50 came over here in 2000 .Im going to maybe lower it and exaust i want to keep it as origanal on the outside as possible maybe lower it drop it about 25mm all round and induction kit and maybe a janspeed exaust .I put the full janspeed on a 93 1.5 dual carb civic years ago it was like a group n car lovely sound the older the exaust got the louder .What have you done to your car .
