    Best upgrades and refreshes for 306 1.4 2000

    The 306 is a sweet little car for sure I love them (I've had 3 of them) Things to keep an eye on repair and maintainance wise is the suspension joint and bushes. They seem to ware a little more than most cars so listen to any weird noises or knock. Also make sure your cooling system is in top...

    picks of my engine bay

    true, but it means you're very limited to where you can take it, I mean you couldn't just go for a drive on a weekend at the drop of a hat, you'd have to plan your trips to track days or to drag strips, personally I don't like the idea of that, but hey ho, I guess in your case it does make more...

    206 SW s project

    you'd be better off doing an engine swap, TU5J4 (1.6 16v Peugeot engines) are cheap and plentiful, overall it would be easier since you wouldn't need a remap or a different ecu to run the "franken" engine you've described

    usually those engines need a cam upgrade to get that sort of power, unless its running individual throttle bodies, as for the clutch issue, has the baring collapsed?

    intercoolers, some more equal than others?

    Have a look at Eric the Car Guy on youtube, he called the condenser on his air con system and saw a massive drop in head pressure in the system, cleaning the intercooler should return similar results I would have thought

    peugeot 207 project help

    I've never seen it done on one of those before, The 180 engine from the 206 is called an "EW10" which isn't specific to that, "EW" denotes the family of engines and the "10" means its 2.0litres, there will be a bunch of other letters after that, that will means its a 180 engine as the 140 engine...

    Should you paint your intercooler?

    WRC cars were using it before it got banded.... they could run leaner air fuel ratios since the methanol increased the knock resistance of the air/fuel charge, also water injected into the inlet has been proven to be more effective than just water spraying an intercooler, the first saab turbos...

    Question for oilman,

    Do you know much about Morris Lubricants? Are they a good manufacture of oils? or is it a case of "we don't deal with them so can't say"? also what are your thoughts on Miller oils? Cheers Brett
