On cyclones I'd raise it up a bit. 15's don't work at that ride height imo.

Just seen this thread, that's a brilliant turnaround, nice work Carl. Shock

Judging by the comments above about ride height, i'd offer a free adjustment to whomever buys it if they don't like the ride height. Saves unnecessary work. Smile

Excellent job Carl.

Needs to be raised 20mm at the rear IMO. What are the arch heights? 590-600mm all round is the best height from experience. This leaves the rear about 30mm higher at the sills which gives the car the necessary turn-in, something that would be especially useful with the extra nose weight of the V6 I'd be interested to drive it to see how it handles.

Front looks to plain without the Rallye stripes and Lion; try just the Lion first.

I'd be interested myself if I didn't have so many projects on the go. I think

With a Supercharger added running a restricted low boost (std internals) this would probably be pushing 300BHP.


Dont think i have seen one in a 406 but i have seen quite a few Clio V6's with the SC Conversion and they are nuts Devil Would really be some project to create a Rallye SC V6 Smile

Where is the battery situated?

If it's not in the boot already then moving it could go a long way to addressing the front to rear balance.

I'm sure that the V6 & Box weighs approx 50kg more than the GTI6 engine & box, so by moving a 15kg battery to the rear, the front is now only 20kg heavier in relation to the rear than it was.

I disagree. (not just cos the math is a bit dodgy..)
I'll know tomorrow about the difference, but it is more likely to be about 20-30 kilos. Smile
My battery is very likely to stay where it is, but I'll move it backwards if its more than that. Remember the V6 is all alloy.

We have just moved my battery into the boot for this reason, to try and equal out a little of the extra weight of the v6, plus there's no room for it LOL


But you will have a big weight difference between the XU9 engine and the V6 so that would make sense. I guess its not still an auto then LOL

Not dodgy math:
Front+50-15=35
Rear+15=15
35-15=20

Dont forget the extra crank weight, rods, pistons, valvetrain etc, plus the V6 gearbox weighs a ton.

The gearbox weighs 10kg more and yes I see what you mean now with the math Smile

The engine is too heavy for my scales (150 kg) but I don't want to remove the exhaust manifolds, alternator and PAS pump. The GTi6 engine without manifolds (but with alt + PAS + flywheel) is 145kg.

Lifting it between us it is probably about 30 - 35kg more than the 6 engine so I reckon overall the difference will be around 25-30kg

Not the end of the world when you consider that a GTi6 is easily that weight more than my car as standard. Smile

welldone carl! ive just read this from start to finish and youve turned the car around, thats exactly what it needed but what i dint have any more patience/time/money to do. i think ppl are right about the grill being wrong but thats cos of the lights, it looked better with black masks Wink,
sum1 said do i regret it...not at all! ha this is a diiferent car now i would regret kickin this 1s ar53 lol.
sorry about the fan i completley 4got about that otherwise i would have told you cos iv fixed it once already!
also sum1 made the point of handling, it might be worth rethinking about 15" wheels? maybe the 206 gti 180s? jst a thought.
glad to see its gone to a good home well...if "carlsberg made homes" and all that lol
good luck with the sale im sure youll have better luck than me though haha
(btw the scoobys coming on a treat jst got rid of the "flamer kit" and some dodgy light that flashes blue in the redline! thought i was gettin pulled over! ha) and its goin in the bodyshop for a refresh next month, i may post some pics in off topic later Wink

Just read this from start to finish and thats some change you've made Carl! No expense spared and it shows - top work!

The only thing I'd say is replace the bonnet for a standard bonnet with the Lion badge - would make it look a lot more subtle.

Well done on saving a Cherry Rallye though. Shame you couldn't have saved the one near me thats sitting in the scrappers waiting to be crushed. It's only done 63k and its bloody lovely Cry

Also if you are still after a headunit drop me a PM as I have a HU and matching changer that I bought for my 306 but never got around to fitting - has the code and everything else you'd need Smile

Keep the updates coming, subscribed to the thread now Cool

Nice work Carl! Just read the whole thread as well, can't wait to see the finished article!

How expensive was that sump, sh*t!!!!! Good to get the oil leak sorted though. Talking of welding (on the old sump) - have you got your welder back yet?
