    406 XU10J2TE

    Okay I was wondeing does anyone know of the specs for this engine.

    I believe it's an 8v Turbo (Petrol) available in the 406 in Europe.

    According to here: <a href="http://www.pugsport-gti.com/psacodes.htm" target="_blank">http://www.pugsport-gti.com/psacodes.htm</a>

    they were fitted to Peugeot 605s and Citroen XMs in various states of tune.

    the 605 had 139hp @ 6000rpm.

    the XM had 150hp @ 5300rpm.

    Apparently there was a 406 turbo petrol XU10J2CTE engine 150hp @ 5500rpm, 235NM @ 2500rpm, 8.1:1 compression ratio (this from a Russian site that came up on google.)

    I guess with cars like 406s and XMs, and the lower cost of petrol here, they considered it more cost-effective to put a V6 in them instead ..

    yeah but the V6 is a bit of a dud from what I hear.

    no where near as good as the 4 cylinder.

    PS the advantage is that 240bhp is easily obtainable out of this motor (at least looking at Eccosse it is)

    i've seen a few Cit's with the turbo 8v at Alpine Affaire in Ringwood.
    The V6 isn't a dud, though the later version has 10-15bhp more.

    As for it being easy to get 240bhp, they needed to fit forged pistons and do alot more work to get that much out of it.
    They've told me the standard internals wont handle much more than 180bhp as it's a low boost setup as standard.
    And i assume you're talking about the engine in the green 309?

    nope the green car is a modified 306 and it has a T16 motor (what dreams are made of) in it. I'm talking about the yellow 306 (rab's 306).

    They've got several green cars, i didnt mean Matt's 306 sedan.
    I meant Steve's green 309 (8v turbo).
    Rab's 306 has had several engines in it, his latest car is the silver 206 GTi (impact kit, 19's).

    The Pupat:

    You're kidding right? I've seen two of these V6's on a chassis dyno and they absolutely scream at high revs! They put out about 145hp at the wheels in stock (early 190hp version) form. With a few mods I reckon 250hp at the flywheel would be easy to achieve with these engines.

    Consider this: in standard form they use primitive log exhaust manifolds and they still put out 190hp!

    Take a ride in a manual 406 sedan (lighter than coupe). They blow all other stock naturally aspirated Pugs away!

    Well I think I've been proven wrong here.

    the major thing is modding NA motors is never as easy as with turbo motors, cause you can just wind up the boost
