    Current PSA engines here have a cast iron block, so no luck looking here unfortunately.

    I'm sure the 305 range diesels were alloy blocked. None in Australia, though.

    Around 1600cc from memory.

    Renault 25/21 diesels are alloy blocked (they use a mildly beefed up block straight from the J series petrol - a testament to the strength of the petrol motors No wonder they cope in 300 bhp R21 Turbos...)
    But only one I know of in Oz (a left hook R25 GTD with dutch plates on it). Sorry.

    You may do better trying New Zealand as they get a much wider range of models than we do.

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    The only all alloy diesel I can think of in your suggested size is the TUD3 diesel, 1360cc fitted to the AX 14D and early 106D >1994. Its all alloy with steel liners.
    I don't know if it ever made it to NZ though.
