    Default Replace 307 1.6L diesel with 2.0L deisel

    Hi Folks,

    I have written off a 307 wagon with a great 2.0L HDi engine. I also have a friend who has a 307 hatch with a dead 1.6L engine.

    I'm wondering on the feasibility of putting the 2.0L engine into the hatch. I'm guessing it would work physically, but would there be computer issues?

    Any thoughts much appreciated.

    We had a customer at work who did this swap. He went from a 1.6 manual hdi to a 2.0 auto hdi. He had to swap absolutely everything. Every wire in the car even the window motors and door looms. It will work but it's a big job. Good luck

    I can't see why it wouldn't work.

    I would start with spending time on the Service box to see what parts are the same - wiring looms, ABS etc.

    But I suspect these are different so:-

    You would need to start with a bare engine bay not unlike when the factory started building the car.
    You would have to transfer the complete wiring loom/s and computer etc from the wagon.
    Also the exhaust system etc.
    Possibly the ABS braking system as well.
    I'd probably drop the sub-frame and transfer all that with the suspension as well.

    Are the instrument panels the same on both cars?

    You would need to connect Peugeot Planet to reconfigure everything afterwards, Keys, Locking system etc. etc.

    Cheers

    Aren't the 1.6 engines dirt cheap from the wreckers. I was just looking for a 2.0 petrol for a friends blown HG and they range from $250:to $500 all around 120 to 150kms on them

    Thanks heaps folks,

    I guess it's not like swapping an old Holden red engine. It looks like acquiring a 2nd hand engine might be the best solution.

    I really appreciate the thoroughness of the answers.

    The 1.6 is a really great engine, just get another one.

    Thanks all, your help has been appreciated.

    Next job on my list...find a 1.6 engine. I'll ring around a few wreckers.

    Cheers
