2.0 8V Conversion, Will It Fit?

Recommended Posts

I.e 306 xsi phase 1, 405 2.0 petrol engine

 

Has anybody done this conversion using the standard airbox on top of rocker and plastic inlet manifold?

I don't think it fits in a 205.

Hi Cal, when i had one I noticed it was slightly too high so didnt use it, though I think an auto bonnet and a bit of spacing it would

So if it was converted to the Gti type cam cover that would solve that problem, I think the inlet manifold is slightly shorter than a Gti6 one so possibly clears

 

Asking for a friend btw

I think the inlet we used was a gti one, gti injectors, afm etc... Gti ecu too

Completely different to what I'm on about, I mean the later version where the ecu controls spark and injection no AFM etc

id imagine Dan is thinking of the xu5jp, same head as a gti.

 

10j2 i think has higher rounder ports and a longer inlet but i dont think it sticks out further forward.

 

not sure if there's enough clearance for the original cam cover, there may be if there isn't a strut brace

The plastic inlet manifold and cam cover will hit the bonnet, so use the 1.6 ones and will be fine!!!
