I hope yours doesn't have the same emissions control system as my 54 plate 307, they start playing up around 70-80k. I had mine mapped out, cheaper than fixing it and no future hassles.

My C2 is powered by the DV6 (1.6 Hdi) 110bhp engine. had it 7 years, 80,000 miles since new (I bought it new) and it is brilliant.
Afaik it's completely different to the previous generation hdi's

very true Ollie,
the base platform for the DV6 was a joint venture between PSA and Ford, new from the ground up, so its not directly interchangeable with the existing 2.0HDi engines.
but, with a suitable bellhousing, it is a smaller engine, so fitting shouldn't be an issue.
the later Euro 5 onward versions are only single cam 8v, better useable performance, and a cleaner running engine, harder to dial out the aftertreatment system though.

Just behind it is the start of a lost wax pattern for an inlet manifold for a 950 V twin dirtbike...not mine sadly!
While the glue is drying on the box I finished another drawing for the turbo outlet as the existing outlet is for the transverse install in the Pug.
I have no facility at home for casting iron so I'll get the patterns finished and check the fit with an Aluminium pour, then drop the patterns off at a local foundry for casting.
Pictures speak a thousand words so it starts on the router table and ends on the engine.
Just need to call at the foundry and then I can concentrate on the gearbox/ECU side.
After £150 on sand no more funds until next month.
The timescale for this project is to have the engine fitted and sorted by April next year in time for insurance renewal.
I have a couple of weeks in July where I'll be at home so expect some progress then.
