Stick it in your valver Tim! With the rot in those inner wings if you stamped on the go pedal hard enough the engine would break free and fling itself out the front! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Much safer with 60BHP :wink: :lol:
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

:lol: :lol: :lol: IMHO these 17 n/a diesel engines were much better than the 19s and much less problematic than the 17TDs

for sure, the 17 is a much sweeter engine than the 19, and yes, they are much less problematic than the turbo, but the turbo's just soo much fun!! :wink:

Can this just have the turbo bolted on along with the intercooler?

Er, no mate, there are MANY differences in the engines, the rods are different, the head is made of a different alloy etc, strap a turbo on a N/A 17 and it would have a very short life...

I'm with Ken on this. The 1.7 n/a is the best diesel engined BX you can get imho.
