  1. Evening all just thought I would write up a quick story. Ive a 98 Xantia Ct in amazing condition and have done a few of the mods to her that others here have done to this motor in their 205! Once again this site has been a huge help! I wanted to open up the engine a little and added a cheap boost controller from ebay. Was rubbish (paid 2$ for it) clearly! Bought a shiny electronic one (turbosmart eboost street) which made a massive difference. Good power from 1900rpm to 4500rpm, almost like a diesel! Exhaust was blowing so had a turbo back system made. Was a fraction larger in bore with fresh mufflers. I didnt want any noise so big mufflers it was and a standard down/sideways exit to keep it stealth. While it was there we fitted a xu10J2 NA cam and gave it a full service. Put it on the dyno to check all was well. 115kw at the wheels so knocking on the door or 200hp and loads of torque. 11ps @ 1900 and 14psi@ 2200-5200 now. Eboost helps hold the boost a little more. Epic bit of gear and Aussie made! Few weeks went by and something didnt sound right. Issue with the cam. Have just ordered a new fresh Turbo Cam from Cat Cams and will have that fitted in a few weeks and am exaited to compare that to the J2 cam. Should make a fraction more due to less overlap etc. Great fun to drive now but god it drinks the fuel! Would be an epic motor in a 205! Thanks for reading!
  2. Hi guys. This is my first thread after buying an 8v 1.9 track day car. The current engine is a pretty well speced: rebuilt 1.9 engine which had the crank polished, standard size. balanced rods and 1.6 pistons. twin weber 45s honed bores and new standard piston rings. the cylinder head had its ports smoothed out and valves all relapped. new piper hot hatch race cam 292 deg new cam belt and tensioner. new engine mounts, rear one solid alloy. flywheel was lightened, new ap borg and beck clutch. 1600 gearbox The car was put on a rolling road and made 150bhp at the wheels so circa 175 at the fly. Is this about the limit for a fast road/tack car or is there any further tuning to extract a bit more power? I have thought of throttle bodies of course but cant really justify the price as I like the webers anyway. Further cylinder head work? Many thanks in advance
