    Default Fuego carby on 2.2 engine

    G'day Renophiles!

    It's not going into a Renault, but I've got a 2.2 litre Douvrin from a Peugeot 505 that I'm putting in my 403. Does anyone know if it will run OK with a standard Fuego carby, without any rejetting? I'm not after power, just something that runs smoothly with no flatspots. It will be auto.

    The standard 505 STi cam that it has is fairly tame, and I believe it is softer than the Fuego cam, so that shouldn't really cause a problem.

    Has anyone run a 'big block' fuego with standard fueling?

    G'day,

    probably will run OK, but there was a version of the 2.2 with a weber according to Mr Haynes....

    cheers,

    How about looking for Weber from a XF Falcon or 20TS Automatic? They will also have the linkage for kickdown cables.

    You will need to dry sump the engine, gets a bit pricey with pumps etc.
    Also it is essential to use the proper engine mounts, a lot of vibration otherwise.
    Much easier fitting an L series Datsun and really not much less authentic.

    I have previouslyinstalled a 2.2 litre motor from a Renault 25 in one of my Fuegos some time ago and it run great with the standard Weber Carbie. Only issue was the engine sat slighly higher with the carbie cover just touching the inside of the bonnet.
