  1. Today
  2. Did Peugeot give a recommended schedule to change these? I realise you can visually check the mesh in the cap and with a little more effort that in the tower, but wanting to know what, if anything was the official line. Cheers.

    Xu10j2 Thermostat

    Hi! For the xu10j2te 1338 37 is the OEM thermostat and opens at 82 or 83 degrees. I'm not 100% sure that's what you're asking about but.

    Clips for brake line 6992E8

    Thanks guys! Funny that they use them on the rcz, think I need about 6 but also need a few for the 1/4 inch fuel pipe. I've ordered some cheap ones from eBay so I'll see what turns up. Fingers crossed I'll be able to get an MOT soon!
  5. Ok makes sense to do it closed loop since ill be using it on the road so really only interested in it being drivable as opposed to making power

    Do you have the original key /coil / keypad (if applicable) ? If it is similar to the marelli management you can start the car, unplug the coil / keypad and it _should_ remain off. --> apparantly not after some googling. Otherwise you will have to read the 24c02 eeprom on the ECU board and find someone to calculate the immo off solution and flash that to the eeprom. (https://www.digital-kaos.co.uk/forums/showthread.php/258628-MP7-0-0-261-204-407-IMMO-OFF-HELP) I've done it for my daily VW once, but I do not know if the calculation are comparable and could potentially result in permanently bricking the ECU. Otherwise find a reputable chiptuning company and have them do it.

  8. Being a standard engine, it's always going to be better if fuel is mapped via MAP rather than TPS. It's a far more accurate method of measuring engine load. Do it right.
  9. looks like the collector flange of the manifold is well away from the bulkhead, just the downpipe angle to alter.
  10. I would keep it as close to original as possible, look at the angle of the gearbox stud to see if its correct, moving away from this is the same as the old tilting the Mi16 which was a bit of a bodge, puts the shafts at odd angles and tips the oil further from the pickup
  11. Hi. I need to replace the front suspension on my 205 cti which has a v6 conversion as one strut is knackered. What suspension would people recommend. I see people like the bilstein b4 and eibach lowering springs. Just wondered if this would be suitable with the extra engine weight of the v6. Thanks Kerry
  12. I can't edit the old post, so sorry about the double up - if a mod wants to delete the old one feel free. The 205 gearbox stud has worked a treat and the engine is basically completely level: With the EW series engines, is it ok to run them at around 20 degrees vs the original 15, I've had a look and mocked up a mount that allows for the exhaust to clear the tunnel basically. 205 vs 206/307 (i can't remember which one is in the image below) mount, there doesn't appear to be much difference, except for the subframe mounting orientation: 205 mount in place with engine hanging from Satchell top mount and 205 gearbox mount, the isn't anyway the factory mounts will work:. I hacked up a couple of the spare mounts and made this monstrosity, just to test with: this has the engine sitting about 20ish degrees and the driveshafts look good, it also allows for the exhaust to fit in the tunnel. The manifold is the gti180, with a high precession 3inch drain pipe i had laying around as a clearance indicator:
  13. Thanks for letting me know about the images not working, Google drive is playing up with its file sharing again, I'll sort that out later. I got the 15 degrees from Sandys Embrace the EW thread, he mentions it at the bottom of the first post.

    Sorry should have said. It is earlier D8 without can bus. Bosch 0261 204 407.
  15. Originally it's 18.5° not 15, that's why you ended up around 20°. I don't know for the others but I can't see the images.

    Fitted these, now working out the mod for the bonnet to close
  17. ok that sounds even better....so TPS, Flywheel and coil packs

    What ECU? Did the donor have a CAN bus? Lot's of unknown variables here.

    Ecu unlocking

    Hi again, Anybody got any ideas on this please? Just in case you are offended at me putting a V6 in a perfectly good GTI then I can assure you it is not. I bought it as a shell with rotten arches and no interior. I fully intend to save her and get her back on the road, albeit in a radically different format than Peugeot intended. Anybody that can help me with the unlocking?

    No idea!

    Ok, trying to hunt down the tachymetric relay. My car is a phase 2 1991 model. It’s supposed to be under the dash by the ecu. But it’s nowhere to be seen. I have hunted high and low and just don’t see it. I’ve checked the engine bay, fuse box, everywhere. There just doesn’t appear to be one anywhere. Any ideas?
  23. You don’t necessarily need a lambda at all if it’s mapped open loop.

    No idea!

    Sure enough they were the wrong way round and still no go. I don’t appear to have fuel being injected but plenty of pressure at the fuel rail. Need to trace/work out if there’s a relay somewhere I reckon. Thanks for the info, all very helpful.

    No idea!

    Just had a read back through your posts, it's unlikely but I looked at a GTI for a mate a while ago, he did a head on it and it wouldn't go, turns out he got the coolant temp plug and the plug for the SAD the wrong way round, he had all the right things, spark/compression/fuel etc but it wouldn't go. If you have a black plug on the coolant temp sensor and a blue plug on the SAD swap them round. It's unlikely but work a look.

    Should be battery voltage at the injector.

    Heater Resistor / Slow Fan?

    Cheers, Bacardincoke and Damir. I will bridge the two points with some clips just to see if it will increase the speed and will report back on the weekend. Now it seems it only blows on low through the whole range of the rheostat.
