    Default C/R of a XU10J2TE

    As the title states, can anyone tell me the compression ratio of a XU10J2TE ?

    Thanks,

    Default C/r

    This link says 8.0, which is pretty much what I thought it was

    Quite low. Dished pistons or a compression reducing plate thingy I wonder.

    Thanks.

    I'd take that site with a grain of salt Chris. The F/d is not 4.46 for a start as it states.

    Yes standard XU10J2 C/R is 9.5:1, so 8.0 is low, but normal for a turbo I believe?

    As to how compression is reduced, I haven't had the head off mine, so can't answer. Haynes manual for the Xantia unfortunately doesn't cover the XU10J2TE motor, so no info there...

    I suppose you're hoping to find a Xantia Turbo CT being wrecked, so you can put the motor into a Pug 205? Magic once mentioned that he wanted to do that, but couldn't find an XU10J2TE in Australia that he could buy.

    Cheers

    Or a 406sri.

    To be honest I'm thinking using the turbo setup on a XU9 motor. Thanks for the info though.

    OK, try this site! Engine specs should be identical...

    I though XU10s where considerably heavier than the XU9. Either ways, I'd be interested to watch the progess

    if doing the above mentioned conversion or any xu 16v conversion into a 205 would it be best to obtain the whole car for all the little bits and pieces or is it ok to just get the motor and a few other neccessary bits. nothing worse than having a car that dont drive stuck in the driveway.

    Heard and understood, but all the turbo gear off this goes straight on to an 8V. Just engine management and compression needs to be address. Hence the thread/question.

    It is always best to have the whole car as there is always something reqd during the conversion.
    The main reason is its easier to unlock the ECU with the full car on site

    Dont stress too much about the heavy cast iron xu10... Mine being the xu10j4te is havy but it still handles a bauty right thru the twistys better than before. This is my personal experience but i know the issue is very strongly debated on here.... With regards t boost pressure.... 8 cr is not so bad althou a litle low but i would have thought that 9.5 is a bit high for a wet liner engine... You might be forced to either run low boost or modify the liners and head to make sure the liners dont shake with high power high boost.
