Wow. look forward to seeing the results! Don't kill yourself - get some decent rubber. And make sure the brakes work! 8)

Can you take some good photos of the car? It would be great to see this BX in more detail.

Wow :D Excellent :D a 2.1TD BX... The ultimate perhaps after a valver...

My 2.1TD Xantia really flies so that engine in a BX must be something else.. All that stomping torque!

The 2.1TD is my favourite engine by far.

What Injection Pump do you have fitted? UK models all came with the Lucas EPIC fully electronic pump with "fly by wire" throttle. We hear rumours that some were fitted with mechanical Bosch pumps and I wonder if you are lucky enough to have one of those?

Did you use the ML5T gearbox or the existing BE3 gearbox from the old 1.9TD engine?

Looking forward to seeing some good pictures :wink:

hellou :D i`m back :D after 540 km with no problems at all :D but there are some .. goods and wrongs
it seems like it has not enought diesel .. (after 3500rpm .. it doesn`t pull like it should , and no smoke at my exhaust .. nothing ... clean ) i will fix that tomorrow :D
well the gearbox ... it`s a frankenstein one .... diesel gears (1, 2 ,3 ,4,5) , and GT final ratio ! (original was 16- 65 , and now it`s 16- 59) , didn`t had anything else to work with ! , the 1st , 2nd and 3rd are perfect ... a bit longer than the xm , but the 4th and 5th are to short
for ex. in 3rd the max speed is 105 km/h ,in 4th the max speed is 130 km/h :( and the fifth the max speed is 180 ... well the bad part is that for now .. i have a very low top speed ... but the good part is that ... it accelerates very fast to the top speed .. nothing stands in front of me :D(i`m looking now for a be3 gearbox.. top put in this one the 4th and the 5th )
the pomp is mechanical i think :o
i made a movie with my car accelerating .. but they are bad... my father could hold his phone straight (i think we all know why :twisted: )
i will put tomorrow photos and the movies...

in my opinion the 12 valve on the bx is the greatest thing ever ... :idea: it`s more relaxing driving it normally ,than the 16 valver ... but wild when u put "the pedal to the metal :lol: )
i`m pretty sure when i boost the turbo and all .. it will be very close !!!
