Wanted - Exhaust manifold for MI16 xu10j4 to suit 205 gti conversion. Anyone with parts or know of where to purchase from, I would really appreciate your feed back. Thanks
I have only got the engine and not the xu10 ecu. I have heard mixed responses with regards to using the existing loom and ecu from my 205 gti, and then ive heard to keep the existing loom and get a xu10 ecu, and then ive also heard to put the xu10 loom and ecu in. Whats your thoughts on this? Also, do you have these parts if i need them? Im not actually doing the transplate, my mechanic is. I would love to do it myself, but dont have the room
The engine fits ok without many mods. The 205 exhaust downpipe is the correct length, position, etc., but the flange size is wrong. So ideally you need an XU10J4 downpipe from Mi16 or S16. Some minor panel work is needed for PAS pump clearance, but otherwise it drops straight in. I recommend regrinding the inlet cam to my Stage I spec. and fitting 1.9L 205 injectors. Make sure the diagnostic lamp is connected so you can see faults. Sometimes the 1.9L injectors may be a tad rich, meaning the ECU can't lock on to closed loop lambda control and the light will come on. You will love the power and throttle response. I'm assuming you're using the XU10J4 ECU?
