    yes the 309 GTI16 was the same engine as used in the 405 MI16, but unfortunately none of these were sold outside of europe or in right hand drive and if you wanted a 309, unles it was a personal import you would have to look to newzeland or europe... i didnt think that they made a 309 T16, but not 100% on that so somebody will be able to bring me up to speed on that, the 309 was a a very similiar car to the 205 as with regards to engines... one more thing, if you were looking to get your hands on one of these i'm pretty sure it would be near imposible as hardly any of them were made in the first place, and if this was for thoughts of an engine transplant then because these were an awsome beast and i wouldn't want to see one wreacked if there any left by now

    heres a website for one http://www.hi-speed.dk/Joakim309.html sorry but i can't translate danish

    EDIT: i may have missread your post but most of what i have said is still relvant to add to the 309 GTI16 and 405 MI16's are basically the same engine a 405 T16 is vaguaely similar to a 205 T16 allthough not really... the 405 T16 was going to be used for group b rallying until they pulled the plug on it, the 405 T16 used in competition i.e pikes peak was basically a 205 T16 with a 2 door 405 body on it in a lot of regards

    unfortunately yes it was a one off for pikes peak and i beleive paris to dakah. it was not going to be a one off but due to the fact that group b rally was discontinued the 405 T16 that was released ended up being a 4 door and hardly even a ghost of the pikes peak, and paris to dakah 405 t16. there a thread about 2 door 405's in the peugeot forum if you would like to search for it
