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...

Well, such enthusiastic sentiments! How could I refuse!

OK I'll try and sort something out - probably next spring... but I will put my scouts out well before then!

Ah, you'd have to leave it standard I reckon. If you're going to make a radical one how about a 16V that's been plundered for it's engine and shoehorn some kind of mentalist engine into it?
Which leads nicely to my next question: does the Citroen 2.0 turbo (petrol) engine fit a BX?

Yes the 2.0CT fits in a BX easily.

Actually I'm still going to build this oneday:
A BX 4X4 twin turbo V6 Activa.
Oh yes I am. And it will be mental.
and it will work, because I'm great.

Just a mad idea that's all Stuart. I have plans for the estate that involve a recovery truck, £180 odd, a trip to Oulton Park, loads of petrol and some full-on sideways action :wink:
