    Default Hi all, I'm new here !

    I like French cars, maybe because I live where they're built! I've seen quite a lot of 205 mi16 mentioned on your board, but no 'CT' swaps. Have CT-engined cars been sent in Australia? In France this is the latest fad: 150 hp in stock form, and of course the turbo enables substantial gains with minor tweaks. This engine was fitted in 406s, Citroen XMs, Xantias and 806s/Evasions (maybe you didn't know that).

    Here's a famous French website dealing with peugeot swaps. They built a 193-hp CT-engined 205 (see first link) and a 280-hp T16 205, both intended for drag racing.

    Welcome, Frenchguy!

    The CT engine came here, but only in Xantias. It is known as a very nice engine, but I would expect they would be hard to find second hand, and expensive too.

    Salut French Guy! I love french cars so much, I'm onto my third - two here and one in England when I lived there. I even like French women - I married one! She's une Bretonne, in fact, even better! What is your current French car/s?

    Thanks everyone,
    I drive a Clio Diesel with no fewer than 65 hp... I'm looking for a 205 gti but good ones at a decent price are not that easy to find...
    As for the 205s I mentioned in my first post, I have some videos but I can't host them.

    WOW! That green 205 looks absloutely amazing! Because i cant read and understand french, what modifications has the car had to the motor?

    Could someone tell me how much it would cost to get a CT motor in Australia or would it be far cheaper sourcing it from europe?

    What is the CT motor? Is it the alloy block or cast block engine. The timeline would indicate the cast one is it; but is it?
