    Icon6 types of 306's

    ok just wondering if someone can help me out iam loooking at buying a newer pug round feb 2005 to modifiy.

    I currently own a 505 GTi s2.

    From what i understand there are n5's cabs,and all the ither n3, n4s etc.
    i was looking for a 306 GTi6 are these good for perfoamnce upgrades also is this the n4 ?

    was thinkin bout getting a 306 (sedan body) and planting the 306GTI6 angine & gearbox in it. Any ideas on how hard this would be ? (worth it ?)

    Other considerations are a 405 or maybe a 406 hmm.

    I want one to really do up. planning to spend bout 25K on the car and the first mods. less on an older car (405 less then 20K)

    Do a search in here, Macquered (brenno) did a timeline thread that goes VERY deep into the history of the 306.
    As for the gti-6 in sedan, good engine in a average body.... but should go in easy.. however it wasn't designed to be in a sedan. Worth it? thats your own thing there.-chris

    There's a guy who was on here a little while ago who converted an N3 306XT into a "GTi6". There were no N3 GTi6s in Oz, so this comes very close. Check it out here:

    If you are going to spent 25K I would probably just buy an early GTi6 to start with and take it from there. From what I have heard around the place, mods on the GTi6 are of little worth, although you could do an unreal job on the ICE system as there is a bit of space to play around with, especially in the boot.

    The 306 sedans look pants anyway.

    A later model 205GTi maight be worth considering too.

    Sounds like you're after a sporty Pug sedan .. IMO it would be easier to get a 406 V6 manual, and then go to work on making the suspension sportier.

    I can see the GTi6-engine-into-sedan-body idea turning into a money disposal project, unless you find a wrecked '6 with an untouched front half (which I think the guy Stone Free mentioned was lucky enough to find)

    would the GTi6 engine etc fit under the hood of a 205?? That might be worth considering.

    I have seen conversions where people have put the 406's V6 into the 306 which would absolutely hammer I reckon.
