The issue with the coupe is the suspension not the engine. The standard dampers are just completely crap and make it feel nose heavy, along with the wheel/tyre combination.

A D9 v6 in a 306 would be quite a thing. Far better engine than the D8.

Yeah its a d8, most conversions are done using that engine as it doesn't have the multiplexed wiring like the later d9 so can be wired straight in as a fairly straight forward conversion, the later d9 needs to be run on an aftermarket ecu which would make it a lot more expensive.

In standard form the d9 is only ~15bhp and 10lbft more so I wouldn't say that much better at all, they do a little better mpg as they are vvt but who buys a v6'd 306 to worry that much about mpg... The main advantage is the scope for future power gains as there are a lot more parts out there for the later engine but otherwise imo it would be a lot of hassle and expense for not much improvement.

I'll be swapping out my D8 for a D9 in soon. Deleting the VVT and removing all the cats will see decent gains. (also have a quote for a complete exhaust system including manifolds Smile DP's are super restrictive)

On the MPG front, I have seen 40mpg on a long run, cruising at 80ish. My V6 is only dragging a skimpy 309 though!

It's certainly not my video, however maybe my car as the conversion was carried out some 5 years ago, but cover less than 2k miles in the 5 years before I got it! Given the rarity of the conversion and the car it may well be mine.

Only other V6 Goodwood I know of is one Miles @ Pugracing carried out a while back, that was a 5dr I believe though.

my coupe was gash on fuel, it did about 220 miles to a full tank, was putting a full tank, sometimes £100 a week in it (d8 engine). my m3 was more economical

The cambelt kits are around £230 then however much on top for labour.

There is something to do with using the later setup, It's either cheaper, better or both. I think it was Adam b that told me about it or I read it on the coupe forum.

Someone has already said they will have it so car is provisonally sold

The later tensioner setup is cheaper and better. I used a Laguna one I seem to remember.
