    Default Drove the 205 CT for the first time today....holy shite !!

    Finally she is nearly ready for the road. Today the tuners sat in the passengers seat with the laptop and fine tuned the little beggar. The 2.0T Xantia motor in a 205 boosted has certainly made the little car come alive. Even the tuner was surprised how it went... [me too !! LOL.......... Its been a long project and glad to see it coming to fruition finally. One really quick sleeper !!

    Drove the 205 CT for the first time today....holy shite !!-pb220392.jpgDrove the 205 CT for the first time today....holy shite !!-pig2-engine-bay.jpgDrove the 205 CT for the first time today....holy shite !!-pb220391.jpgYes Andrew i have another project waiting in the wings to start in July. I now have 2 Si's to wreck and without them the fiddly little bits would have made this project much more difficult. [being probably the first in OZ to do this i had nobody to call on for an infofest ]
    Also mention must go to Fish on here who helped out immensely when the chips were down and i needed some pertinent parts....he is a New South Welshman now though.
    Hopefully i can upload some pics :}
    Fish....the HP figures are 170hp at the wheels at a very low boost.......ironically it ran better and showed more torque without going the full 1 bar boost UK people normally do. Only mods were the dkz cam and full stainless exhaust [also Haltech ]

    Yes that is true Addo.... i was talking about being possibly the first Xantia CT conversion in OZ [a very common conversion in UK ]
    Isis's former car was my original turbo 205 [the first mi16 turbo in Oz ] and a completely different animal :}

    Have you figures on weight differences of the Xantia turbo vs the original 1.9 litre motors. I am interested in how it handles and any modifications to fron end you recommend.

    No figures i am sorry....maybe someone can come in an tell us what a xu10 j2 motor weighs? The mI16 from memory is 15kg more [SpooxMotorsport figures not mine ] than the stock 1.9 so at a guess it would roughly be in the same vicinity. When driving it doesnt affect the handling at all. :} No torque steer as yet either.
    No mods to front end required. One bonus is that there is plenty of free airspace in the engine bay mainly around the rad and intercooler.
    If you are thinking of doing it think real carefully as its not as easy as fitting say an Mi16 or GTI6....but seeing the bonnet lift under boost is certainly appealing LOL

    Yes, Gerry they are good things. My TT being old school 5th injector technology from the 80's was good however this baby gets up and goes and having the tiny snail makes it very responsive off the mark. You dont know what you are missing out on ;]

    Wow. What is that? 90% of the red 205s in Oz in one collection? Are you trying to corner the market, jr? Better watch out they don't inbreed.

    Nice, by the way.

    Just an informative question. Is the Xantia turbo engine you used a rarity in Oz?

    Yes, pretty happy with it...its been a long time coming and a lot of $$ and man hours spent. I set out to have a quick sleeper...an everyday use car and i think i have achieved that. I would love to lower the thing as it looks sooooo high however then one gets into the rattly teeth syndrome and as well police attractant.
    Its no silver PIG in grunt but its the next best thing without spending mega $$.
    Hope the Clio is seeing track days ;]

    Jr, the kw variant 2 coilovers I put in pig 1, corner weighted, had a not bad ride. The eibachs in my Clio are 30mm lower and better ride than standard.
