I have a 1.4 hdi n was thinking about getting a bigger turbo put on it say a 1.6 one is this possible?

Also has anyone tried mounting their intercooler in front of the radiator or in any other positions rather than space beside the radiator?
if that is all said and done then get it remapped

Dont know about the turbo, but before you do try that you'll need an intercooler anyway, it can be put horizontal in front of the rad on a 207 which is the same engine but of course different bodywork so not seen it done on a C2 yet.

Its possible to get decent gains from fitting a 1.6 intercooler and remap though, have a search through the threads its been done successfully already.

Yeah my mate works for volvo and is thinking he could get me a intercooler at trade price but they don't do vertical ones so was just wandering if a horizontal one would fit. Ill wait till the weather dries up and have a look at the space in front lol
yeah iv seen the threads of it mounted vertically just interested in mounting it horizontally.

Hijacking my own thread but bump do you still have angel eyes on your car? im thinking about getting them but i can almost remember reading that yours broke so was wondering what ones to avoid?

have you thought about about getting a diesel tuning box/chip? i have one on mine and makes a lot of difference, also fitted a vertical mounted intercooler from a 207 gtti.

this is the tuning box i bought

Joing in same hijack, yes I do still have the Angels on - The bit to watch on Angel Eyes is the top bracket that attaches the light onto the car, it is very thin and brittle. I snapped mine but bodged a repair and its fine now 8) Only other thing thats 'gone'' on them are the led's in the halo rings, all four rings are out now 8O

bump, yeah thats a bit shit main reason i want them is for the halos lol what make our yours so i no what to try and avoid?

c2kev, is that not like gettin a remap? its a good idea n certainly cheaper than a remap

God knows what make they are, got them 2nd hand from a member on here. I'll look in the box or on the lights themselves to see :)

cheers bump would be much appreciated. just out of curosity how much would u reckon is a reasonable price for an intercooler? cause i have know idea lol

i won my intercooler on ebay 16, yes 16! you can get a new one here for roughly 100 http://www.carcooling.co.uk/products/Intercooler_Citroen_C2_1398_cc_2003_07_03_1_4_Hdi_ Turbo_Diesel_Manual_vehicles_with_or_without_A_C_2 75_148_65mm_14CN300-113314-1567.html

Good to see im not the only person on here with a facelift :D

12-01-2009, 02:10 PM
The one that C2KEV put a link to is the one I put on my 1.4Hdi. As you can see from the sig, with that, and a K&N Panel filter,after the Red Dot remap mine got to 112BHP and 155 Lb/ft of torque. The thing to think about is how you will get the pipework to the intercooler. With mine mounted vertically in the gap it wasn't too bad to pipe.



12-01-2009, 11:57 PM
yeah there is very few of us facelifts about. Are u a fan of the chrome surround on the front bumper? im still undecided having had this car since aug dont no whether to get it done black n smoothed into the bumper.

Carpy nice stats, id be well chuffed to get mine up2 that whats ur mpg like when you drive normally ie. not abusing the torques lol where did you get ur tubing from?

13-01-2009, 12:47 AM
Hi Riky,
I'm getting around 58-59 around town driving sensible, around 52-53 when I'm playing and around 65 on the motorway at a constant 70. The tubing was bought from a local car spares shop, one bit (with the plastic bits on top) came from a scrapyard and the other bit leading to the turbo is the original pipe turned around so the bend was going the correct way. The metal elbows were borrowed from work !!!

Hope they dont want them back 8O

14-01-2009, 03:23 PM

i had a 207 gt in white mate hdi engines are lovely! i had mine remapped, larger frount mounted intercooler, straight through enhaust, uprated panel filter and slightly larger injectors, running 150bhp it was, 1st thing you want to do is the breathing, panel filter and exhuast then go 4 a remap, will feel like a different beast m8, here mine before i got my vts;

15-01-2009, 09:57 PM
thats one tasty pug, how much did the exhaust set u back? yeah im thinking of getting green air filter for now n may be angels n then once ive got money together get an intercooler! and then onve i get the engine well bedded in remapped.
