Thanks a lot CGAT . Love your work to :wink:
The car now is under development ... a pipe broke and needs some welding also new injectors ... and a screamer pipe added :)
50% i say i will go for a bigger turbo . Also in search of a hatchback bx to transfer the parts , the next hatchback body will be chopped and only 900 kg max , and still a daily drive ...
Also in search of 2.0 hdi internals for a new future project , 1.9 td block and hdi pistons and rods and 2.1 head ... should be something else .

And some movie from the first week i got it out with the new turbo , now it is much faster ...

I think the shell of the estate ended up in the boneyard, judging by the pics above..

But the motor lives on in this Mad Max creation. Looking good - it must have been another load of work to get this new BX going. Good work!

Hello , yes the estate is no more , the new car has only the gearbox and the injection pump and some minor stuff , the engine is brand new , went for a t3/t4 turbo - good for 400 bhp , custom exhaust manifold made in the house , new clutch from 215 mm to 230mm hdi one and modified to 240 mm , the car is nou street legal , it feels awesome .. but for now 2000 km to let the engine feel like home under the bonet , i will upload some photos so you can see the work done.. for now just a few ..
