    Peugeot 206 V6 Turbo 4Motion

    I'm just sharing one guy's project because it's truly one of a kind and deserves so much more attention. I'm not sure if it was covered here or not but it can't hurt. I'll let the video speak for itself: Fast forward a few years from the interview the dude decided to turn it into an...

    Transplanting everything from a big car to a hatchback

    Yeah the space is going to be a challenge, i have to carefully measure everything. I've seen people being able to put it into the car but before i do that, ill have to rebuild the whole engine and then wonder if the engine mounts will hold lol. It's going to be twice as many ponies with twice as...

    Diesel Exhaust - worth it or not?

    Most people just do a slight remap on a diesel and thats all you can do without mods, the other thing is blanking the EGR and DPF delete + remap which gives a lot of power for the simplicity of the modification (most likely not legal and wouldnt pass inspection/emission test but i've seen people...

    508 2.2GT tunning questions

    Diesel gearboxes should be a bit tougher than usual, there might be some info on the gearbox itself somewhere on the internet if you know the exact name of it.

    508 2.2GT tunning questions

    I know a few people that managed to squeeze out 200-220hp with 460-ish Nm but that's mostly like variable turbo upgrade + remap with obligatory egr+dpf delete. Past 250 you need to pay attention to things like cylinder head lift, i wouldn't push it past 250 with stock parts. All in all, it is...

    Transplanting everything from a big car to a hatchback

    I'm still on the researching portion, the most difficult part will be dealing with oldish engines, you never know what you got with them.

    Transplanting everything from a big car to a hatchback

    I'm guessing manufacturers almost always use the same engine mounts throughout a set year for saving money on stuff like that.

    Transplanting everything from a big car to a hatchback

    Yeah ive seen that one bit, killed the engine in the end lol but it was worth it. Main reason why i ask is that i want to do it all by myself and i cant trust anyone else with it since almost every mechanic wanted to rip me off every single time i was doing the simplest of services. It was...

    Transplanting everything from a big car to a hatchback

    This is a rather complex question to be asking it as plain as im trying to do here but regardless, is it possible to take everything from a "big block" car and put it into a hatchback of the same car brand without having too many issues? The idea is to take the bigger engine with its intake...

    Diesel exhaust systems

    My limited time, budget and inability to find a place i can trust with even the basics of body/engine work leaves me to my own two hands so i opted out for a simpler approach, engine swap and suspension upgrade, that much i can do alone with maybe some help of my friends with the heavy bits just...

    Diesel exhaust systems

    It's more of the line of not having that much of a budget rather than getting it back lol i want to keep it forever until death do us part at this point :D

    Diesel exhaust systems

    You really made a good project there, the more time goes by the more im thinking of an engine swap for mine. Apparently it's much easier and cheaper than upgrading and more rewarding, there's even the possibility of adding a turbo to it, the thought of a small car with easy 250hp just makes me...
