If P6000 are very good, then Goodyear F1's are sublime.

Cheers Gav, plenty of photos for you to drool over in the wheel and tyre section. Was a bit worried but they are good.

Its so effortless you can pull away in almost any gear!

Removed all the manifold, front rocker cover etc as it was loooking a bit manky and replaced it with some shiney bits-

Make your own mind up, looks great now i think-




Whilst on the ramp i sorted out the knocking on the front suspension, it was driving me wild and one reason why i pulled it from for sale.

Sorted the exhaust and it now sits flush to the bumper as it should.

Took it for a good drive on sunday and have to say it drives bloody great.

That looks the business! If i ever need work doing to my car i will give you a call.

Is the engine noticeably smoother and quieter than the 4 pot?

Yes much so has the lovely v6 burble and has more torque so is very easy to pick up from low revs etc.

Its a weird conversion as its not a great leap in power but is very worthwhile.

Yes its loads smoother and fairly quiet until the induction roar picks up and it slings you down the road. Pootling about in 5th everywhere from 20mph is amusing. Mine is using quite a lot of fuel at the moment however.

It is a bit heavier in the nose, but nothing that can't be sorted out. I noticed a bigger change fitting the Xantia V6 discs and brembos to the turn in tbh.

Last q - what is it like on fuel on a motorway cruise? I guess it must be reasonable (ie better than a 406) due to the lower weight of the 306?

heavier discs and pads make it worse? Possibly one instance where drilled discs might be of benefit as reduce sprung weight?

Its not great in terms of power, but it is in torque. I know you are used to a s/c car, but its a huge amount quicker overtaking than a standard rallye. Anyway hope to get it out with a standard one soon to see any difference.

The main thing for me is that it will hopefully be reliable as the engine is basically standard.
