    Not true, you can turbocharge the 1.4 TU unit. For reliability I'd keep it below 140hp. oil temp and pressure is a BIG thing with these engines. you need a large thermostatic oil cooler.

    If you want to go down a cheap turbo route, get a 1.6 16v engine from a saxo or similar (J4 engine) and they can be turbocharged reliably to 220-250hp. As long as you are smooth with the gearbox, they can take it too, otherwise you'll need to fit a gearbox and clutch setup from a car which has a BE gearbox with TU engine. I think some picasso gearboxes etc.

    Still, OEM parts which are easy top obtain and relatively cheap.

    The TU is a brilliant engine! 95-100hp possible with a camshaft change and a better exhaust

    New around here,

    Hello everyone, i'm new around here. Normally i don't do forums or stuff like that but i thought why not?

    My Alias is; MultiDutch and i'm 20 years old and i live in The Netherlands
    I drive a Peugeot 306 XN 1.4 from 1997,
    Since i was young i dreamed of owning a car like this because i was really into rally at the time with the 106 and 306 being my favorites.

    Thanks for having me around!
