    Can you/ is it worth upgrading diesel turbos?

    Hi there mate, I ran what you've said through google translate and I got the "jist" of what you've said. It really depends on what you're using it for really, If offroading is your thing then a VNT turbo of sorts would probably suit you well. As for the extra fuelling... again I'd need to see...

    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

    Avoiding turbo lag

    by far the easiest way to lower the boost threshold and eliminate lag is to use nitrous on a boost switch, did it on my 306, worked a treat

    In need of a new daily driver

    So, sadly my little 205 turbo diesel needs to be replaced, as much as I love it so, it's becoming too much hassle to maintain as a daily driver and parts aren't as cheap as you think now as availability just isn't there anymore. It won't be going for scrap though, but for now it will be going in...

    c2 vts clutch help

    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

    Does oil affect performance

    Castrol Magatec is supposed to be one of those type 3 oils that say fully synthetic when it's not really the case, AMSOIL is hard to come by in the UK and is very expensive so I've never used it, I used to use Castrol Edge but switched to Fuchs Titan Pro S,

    Is long life oil really long life

    if it was still under warranty then regardless of them saying that, then they'd have to replace it.... if its a sealed for life transmission according to them and they say the reason for failure was due to the fact the fluid had never been changed then all you'd have to do is quote the fact that...

    Have you removed your Cat/DPF/pre cat

    removed the cat on my blue 306 since it wasn't required by law, fortunately for me at the time, pug sold the early 306 dt's without a cat from the factory so I just bought the front section of the exhaust for 20 quid and had my local exhaust centre fit it for me, I wouldn't say my top end...

    Should you paint your intercooler?

    Electric Superchargers from eBay etc

    depends on the superchargers, generally larger ones won't be able to do the RPMs of the smaller ones, but the larger ones can flow more air (you already knew that) saw this video ages ago and I kind of knew what the outcome would be..... That said these guys did something similar and made an...
