No problem making a wedge plate. Demand has dwindled in recent times.

I'm not knocking your decision to put the Mi in btw! It's your car etc I was just curious

I didn't think you was, Honestly i'm still torn between the two as the 1.6 runs pretty good to be honest. I want the Mi16 to look completely stock when you open the bonnet. 

 

thanks for the replies regarding the wedge plate guys, ive just been offered a 4 branch at a reasonable price so will go down this route for now. 

 

peterT, Thanks for reply.  I hear good stuff about your cams as well. can they be put in a standard engine with good gains? Cheers

Being at the point you are; making decisions about what direction to go in with respect to your car is good fun . However, a few words of caution. Explore all the options and avenues . The advice and information available on this forum is detailed, comprehensive and sage . But in the end you will have to decide what you want from and for your car. Once you go down the 16v route, “mission creep” becomes almost inevitable ( read my build thread  to see what I mean ) . A mild cam upgrade if you are doing an engine build makes good sense. Peter has a proven track record ( no pun intended here Peter ) on cam development . Much more than a mild cam upgrade however, and the o.e engine management system will not cope effectively , so upgrade number two begins. And so it goes on. 

We might chat about this next Monday if you can make it to ‘ the Highwayman ‘

regards,

 Andy

I understand what you mean see below for an example ha-ha, also keep in mind this was 10 plus years ago so 205’s were cheaper, dont  hate me for ruining the standard model haha

What i want is a standard looking 205 with more poke keeping the original mi16 ecu and injection, im even considering putting the 1.6 wheels back on to be honest. I've done the big power and as much as i enjoyed the noise and poke the car just became too much to use on the roads (mission creep fail). i'll look forward to the meeting monday!
