    Default Peugeot 508 gt turbo upgrade

    I was wondering if anyone on here has a 508 gt and has upgraded it, I got my hands on a holset hx35 off a Cummins engine and was wondering if it was possible to install it. I have a 2012 508 gt just in case that info is needed.

    IMHO it's not going to be of benefit as the turbo you have is designed for engines between 5 to 6.5 litres capacity, the pug engine isn't going to produce enough puff to spin the thing anywhere near fast enough to produce extra grunt.

    By the time it spooled up on the 2.2 diesel, the race would have been well and truly lost.

    HMMMMMMMMMMMMM-graft 2 blocks together-that is 4 litres-still may not 'compute' ,so then you would have to put 3 blocks together and have a radial 508 -add some wings and we can all wave as you fly past.

    Anyway,more importantly-how do you like the 508 -I have spoken to many 508 owners and they have all been extremely.

    All been extremely what? Haha, I really like the car and it accelerates quick with the small turbo, but it runs out of puff quickly. other things like heated seats are good, massage is a bit sloppy though.

    Thanks for the reply, can you recommend any performance upgrades for it? I'm not that familiar with Diesel engines and want to work on my car to learn.

    You're in Qld. At my last rego inspection the engine was revved to see what came out of the exhaust. They are on to that one.

    Bizarre. I wonder what the calibration standards are for his 'eyeball' system.....even the 'smoky vehicle' standards mean you have to be blowing constant smoke for more than 10 seconds.

    Cheers

    My guess is he was looking for the puff of black a rapidly accelerating diesel gives off. The mixture is temporarily rich. The FAP intercepts the carbon. The exhaust pipe of my C5 is as clean and shiny as new. He could have looked at that I suppose.

    There's no science behind that test I'd suggest a different inspector or Id be happy to challenge that. But yes we don't have to go through that BS up here yet.

    He's a good tradesman. Did his apprenticeship in Europe where diesels are more common.

    They sold Ford Territories (and some other makes) without DPF didn't they?

    The majority of passenger vehicle diesels don't have a DPF in Australia.

    I wonder what this test is?

    Deletion of the filter in NSW is a rego fail, despite some vehicles not yet having one.
