Post by mihaistan » Thu Aug 07, 2008 10:43 pm

hello to all , my name is mihai I`m 18 years old .. in feb 2008 i got my license :D and in march i got my bx 19 rd estate (present from my father who saved it from scrap, he is a citro mecanic:D and cx owner) so i started working at the interior .. .. updated the soundproof in it ... changed the dash with a new blue one (painted:D black by me :)) )
2 weeks ago i started working at the 12 valve turbo (me and my father -my first serious project) the 1.9 diesel was ok my top speed was 1700 km/h but ... i need more hp so... the engine is from an xm from england .. it had automatic gearbox (sorry if i wrote wrong)
these are the links for pictures ... enjoy

Was it hard to fit in? Had that in mind when my XUD9TE said BOOM. I mean what did you have to modify?

well, easy to put it in ...but hard to put it in properly. i saw the pictures from the holland bx 2.1 turbo and said .. ok that will fit easily :D but for the engine to have enough space (to change the oil filter for example ) the front structure and the turbo needs remodeling :wink:
my dream is that i tune this engine to similar performance as the valver :D maybe faster , :idea: and if this doesn`t work ... i think i will try to fit a v6 :twisted: maybe add a little turbo :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Could be interesting :) Not many turbo diesel BX'es with more than 150hp :)

Looking forward to see it run!
