    Default My Track Day Project...

    It is posted in this section for a reason

    I have a Pug 306 3 door currently in a 3 door. It is a D Turbo 1.9 Diesel. Going to rip it apart and pull the engine from the front and sell that off. Strip it all down to a bear shell, lighten it as much as possible then rebuild it from the ground up with a Megasquirt ECU and the best bit...

    Vectra SRi 2.5 V6 engine mounted in the rear powering the rear wheels lightly tuned.

    Pics to follow as we go along. It starts this weekend. Gonna be fun

    Sounds awesome John.... but why a 306 shell?

    Have you ever seen Andy Burton's stunning four wheel drive 306 cosworth rally car.... well worth a look for a bit of inspiration: http://www.peugeot-cosworth.co.uk/th...cification.htm

    Seen it rallying a few times.... what an animal, and an Opel DTM engine to boot!!

    Nice one Jamie. 306 shell happened to be cheap as a complete car and my bro in law has a d turbo in need of TLC. So kill 2 birds with one stone and left with a shell. And off we go again

    Nice link Jamie thanks mate

    Engine choice I got offered an MOT failure due to rust a Vectra 2.5 V6 for £150 so it is going in
