    406V6


    Hey everyone I just gotta tell all, I drove the best car I've ever driven today, a
    406V6 5 speed manuel, quick! did you say quick? It got to 100kph in second gear, It was quiet, smooth and very quick, surprisingly good traction and great handling. Who's gonna be the first to put the motor in a 205?

    Someone in Europe stuck the 406 V6 into a 306 cabriolet. They are a great engine. We had a dyno day for members of the NSW Pug club 2 years ago. The 406 V6s sounded unreal on the dyno, especially at the top end. Afterwards I went with some of the guys for a thrash round the twisty roads in Royal National Park. I had a ride in the passenger seat of both the sedan and the coupe. I have to say that racing along a twisty road under a forest canopy with that engine singing was fantastic! One day I might get to actually drive one.

    David, what revs was the 406 pulling at 100kph in second? I'd image they'd do more than 100 in second pretty easily. I know 100kph in second in a carby 504 is pretty flat out as you're pulling 7000rpm, but they will do it. I saw my father pull about 7500rpm in second one day, but I've never been over 7000 myself (as far as I can remember). It's a bit pointless going past 6000. The V6 is another matter entirely. The 3 litre V6 seems to be really in its element at high revs and they sound unreal right up until they hit the rev limiter.

    I think it was Peugeot-Eccosse that did the Aqua colored 306 cabriolet. It belonged to the owners wife.

    What other engine transplants will fit into the 205 without hacking bits and pieces of the car away?

    yah Ecosse have transplanted a few V6's into 306's.
    The ultimate 406 is the Alesia 406 3.0 V6 coupe, twin turbo, RWD conversion....only about 450bhp!

    Yeah, I've seen the Alesio website (I think it's www.alesio.com). That would be the ultimate Peugeot. I wish the factory made a 4WD twin turbo version of the 406 V6 coupe. It would be a Ferrari beater.

    Dave,

    This car was actually rev limited at 6500 rpm, I thought a little low but thats about the 100 kph mark. But it didn't matter, its got so much low down torque that revs didn't matter, it would cruise along at 50 in top gear
    if you let it, but that would be stupid because you wouldn't here the engine note.

    David.
