    Default 3LTR V6 into a 406 2LTR

    Hi you all has any one every put the 3ltr v6 peugeot motor into a 2tlr peugeot 406 body is there much work needed to do this I have a smashed up peugeot 407 V6 with a good motor. And I already have a peugeot 406 if it just a matter of putting the V6 in and changing engine mounts and a computer loom that’s not hard. Also what is the best peugeot motor for power?

    Off the top of my head, differences between the 2 litre and 3 litre 406s:

    Driveshafts
    Power steering HP pipe
    Air-con pipes and mountings
    Electrical looms - engine and gearbox, if you're changing from AL4 to ZF4HP20, only engine loom is required if you're going manual to manual
    Lower engine mount brace

    Everything else will drop straight in, though I'm not 100% sure that 406 and 407 engine mounts are identical? You may have to source some 406 V6 engine mounts.

    Keep us posted, sounds like a decent project. Just remember that the front of the car will be lowered from the extra weight, so preload on the springs will be increased and handling compromised. The V6s also had bigger brakes IIRC, the coupes certainly did.

    Thanks i didnt think about the fornt springs. I will need new ones as the car is only 100mm off the ground. Peeps say why not just Turbo it but in QLD your not to allowed to have turbo cars if your on your Ps. And as I will give the car to my son in a year when he gets his licence so turbo is out. This is going to be a fun project
