Hi V Dub lovers im new to this forum and can i say how intresting it is, so much info im in overload. Im converting to Pug diesel power and wanted to know what is the best engine to look for? what was the last year the engine was made and what model of Pug is it in?. Is thier a particular engine that fits better than others? Just want to make sure i buy the right engine. THANKYOU ALL.....
1.9 d is about 60 bhp i think - slow but reliable (for a peugeot/citroen) 306/xantia/zx models c92-98
1.9 td is about 90 bhp and has less vibration - dead common and thus cheap to buy (headgaskets a common problem tho - any mayo on the cap and walk away.) zx/xantia/306/405/406 92-98ish
2.1 td is the holy grail and difficult to find without startship miles. 112 bhp so will fly! 605/XM 92-96 ish
all require a good gearbox to avoid over-revving. Think dk code from a 2.0 lawn mower or AAP 2.1 box or ABD something like that. these boxes are not cheap as everybody wants them.
probably one of the cheapest conversions you can do, but you will have to fabricate your own engine mounts _________________ '79 Bay running citroen 1.9td and phat tyres!
