    14 nimrod

    Will 15inch nimrod wheels fit my 205 gti 1.6 without any modifications
  3. Today
  4. OK, thanks for the offer on the mhh auto downloads, I'll see how I get on with the other methods first before I look at a reflash to remove the immo. I've stripped a couple of 2000/2001 306 hdi's that had a basic bsi which had the anttenna for the immo, as I believe did the 306 GTI-6 through it's later life post keypad security. I think the Xsara started to get the BSI from around 2001, mines a 2003 model so towards the end of the VTS coupe's life. It's a shame there isn't an option to disable the immo through Lexia, I've got an xp laptop with it running that I could do it with. g

    If I am not mistaken you have one of the first cars with a BSI, afaik the immo antenna runs to BSI which unlocks the ECU. Maybe @SRDT knows more about these platforms. If you find info on mhh auto which you can't download shoot me a PM or post it here since I have an account there. I found an immo calulator yesterday evening but I hadn't had the time yet to revive my XP laptop since it wouldn't run on my win10 machine. But it is likely I'll need a flash dump for that and the only methods I've seen need unsoldering the flash memory (which is beyond my skillset :P).

  7. Thanks Thijs, that's given me a few things to look into before I get to far into the stripping of the car. I'll have to remove the steering column cowl because I suspect I can test any method out by unplugging the ignition barrel chip reader thing that fits around it. (can't remember the proper term for it). g

    Sorry, this mod requires all new wishbones.
  9. Sorry, I thought we were talking Mi16 heads. If GTI6, I’d just set them up with 90lbs of seat pressure and send it.

    Information is all over the place on teh internets. Some say start the engine and cute wire 3 and 4 from the middle connector and it should be good to go. That might be easy enough to test on the donor. Others talk about installing an immo emulator in the ECU (which involves reading the flash of which I don't know if it can be done with the memory on the circuit board. Personally I'd give the first option a go but I think it is more involved that only cutting the CAN wires off on a running engine. My search query: https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-d&q=IAW+48P2.60+immo+off https://carlabimmo.com/manuals/immobilizers/peugeot/manual.pdf https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IYBIWRNxPOU https://carlabimmo.com/manuals/immobilizers/citroen/citroen-peugeot1.pdf
  11. Thanks Peter. https://www.peugeot-tuning-parts.co.uk/peugeot-405-mi16-cat-cams-valve-springs-retainers They are listed for mi16 but I assume they will fit a gti6 head ok? Also the shim part number, what manufacturer? I think it would be prudent to get a set in just in case.
  12. I've also attached the wiring diagram I think supports the later three plug ecu and I've added the wires I need to find for the connections to get it up and running in a 205. g
  13. I had to go to them, I think from memory it was about £200-£250 all in so included the belts themselves and fitting. I don't think it took them long to do at all but that's often the case if you know what it is your doing. There was another firm I nearly used that do come to you. I cant remember their name but they were a little more expensive. The main reason for going with quickfitsbs was they were very well established with a lot of experience and so if I ever had a problem at least I knew I knew I had somewhere to back to as opposed to someone who is mobile and can easily disappear. They are proper petrol heads as well, I was lucky enough that they showed me some of the projects they had on at the time, some of the cars they had and the work involved was amazing. Its been a while now since they did my car but back then I would have had no hesitation in recommending them.

    I’m only modifying my wishbones with a spherical joint to replace the ball joint. I’m using Baker BM replacement rubber bushes on both attachments to the subframe. Does this rule out your modification? I’m guessing that this mod would require spherical bearings at both of the points where the wishbone attaches to the subframe.

    That is lovely, what a project! Keep us updated

    Please do post up the pictures of this mod. I'm interested in gaining some more castor and I to run the fixed platform Bilstein's.
  17. Consider what happens to your bracket on an impact sideways... You only focused on impact on the front. With respect to side impact; the cover for the hood frame is missing and you have some exposed hard metal stuff 30cm from the head of your kid.

    Cut off the rear mount entirely and weld a new one on at 45º. I'll post a pic later.

    Allan at Bridgecraft makes a kit of adaptor washers to move the rear bush outwards to add castor. I’ve done it to my road rally 205.

    Front Suspension

    I would like to, within certain limits, optimise the front suspension geometry on my Targa/Road rally 205. I am making my own adjustable wishbones, so will be able to adjust the camber. I have fixed platform Bilstein struts and have no plans to change to coil over struts at the moment. I realise that this limits the amount of caster that I can achieve, but would like to get as much as possible. I’m sure that I’ve seen a modification to the rear mount on the subframe, which would move the bottom ball joint forward slightly. Does anyone have any info on this modification? Is it possible to move the top of the strut back when using the fixed platform struts and standard top mounts? TIA
  22. I use a single spring from PAC for that application, PAC-S10011 and matching titanium retainers 99333. Available from Catcams, Pug1off etc. They also fit the standard retainer but you need approx. 2mm of shim to get the seat pressure correct. For 8000+ I use K20A double springs SPR-H1021D, from Supertech and Z900 titanium retainers. Regardless of what you choose, make sure you confirm the seat pressure is 90lbs. A useful resource is the 1mm shim, 095131.
  23. Interesting, I assume theres no real need to do the retainers unless your going silly RPM? and you wouldn't happen to have access to the part number of them please? I'd appreciate it alot
  24. OK, I'll get a picture of the ecu in the next few days but I was hoping it would just be the same as the earlier models with the single plug and if the battery was disconnected quickly enough the BSI didn't have chance to write a new lock code. I don't think many people have tried to use the parts from the later Xsara for this conversion but I thought seeing as I have the whole car to work from, I might as well give it a try. g

    The colour-toned bumpers and body trim look gorgeous. Was expecting an abomination. Well done. Really, really nice. Stephen
  26. I'm using piper cams double springs in mine, they fit the standard retainers, install height in my head was bang on after it had the 3 angle seats done. They're the same spring in the coscast Vauxhall and the cossie turbo engine as well as both xu10 16v engines.
  27. DW10 pumps will substitute for the XUD11 pump
  28. Next question Valve springs. They seem to vary from expensive to eyewateringly so. Any suggestions/advice on which to use? 11.7 lift and 7500 limit
