Ay up, Karl!

Looks like you're based up North! Seems vaguely familiar but I can't place it.

Welcome to the forum Karl :)

I've not noticed that shade of green before, almost looks military spec!

Interesting choice of air filter and placement of it, what was the reason behind that?
I've not heard of a few of the mods either, might be ideas for new blog posts!
Do you know about the 'fun screw' on the top of the fuel pump? As far as I know, it increases the fuelling on boost.

the colour is standard called venetian green witch is quite rare now. the air filter i put on due to a previous owner putting on a cheap pne that just didnt do any justice and looked horrid. yes the fun screw is on the side and the one on the top is the boost compensator. been tweeked has the pump and its reading 20psi

ah sorry for that. heres what they are below

19. XUD, 1.9 turbo diesel engine
T2 turbo, garratt turbo witch is the best standard turbo for this engine
bosch pump, bosch fuel pump can run the car on veg oil or bio and is alot better to tinker with than the lucas pumps
ground lda, Lda pin inside the fuel pump witch has been ground to let more fuel in
gov mod, at 3.5 rpm the fuel cuts so the car will not pull after that but wilth the gov-mod the car will rev up to 6rpm and still go witch is good
HDI box, the gearbox is from a 2.0 306 HDI so i have longer ratios
straight through stainless
Fmic, front mount intercooler witch standard they sit on the top of the engine but i have moved it to the front for more cold air.

Its good to see the filter intake is actually high up. I saw a cone filter on one once where it was at the lower point (you know where the airfilter box is low down) so if they had gone through a deep puddle there would of been a "problem" :D due to hydraulic lock.

Never quite understood though why the DT compared to the NA 306's had the filter at the back, iirc the standard NA top box will fit with some work to the intake pipework plastics.

As a random thought check that you do not have any air intake piping right low down at the back if possible.

I'm aware of grinding the pin 'tweak' to provide a bit more urgency too.

It is an uncommon colour for a TD most of the green ones that shade tended to be 5 door LX's or estates. :)

ye i put my filter at the top so it could get better air through the grille. previous owner had a cone filter at the lower point and it sucked up a stone witch nackerd the turbo so had to change the turbo when i got it. grinding witch pin the LDA?. ye the colour i love everybody looks at it and asks questions. better when shes been polished :)

The car looks proper angry with the new front end, a good nod over to the 406 Coupé.

122bhp sounds quite good from a 92bhp engine to me :) What sort of power were you expecting? How far have people gone with the XUD?

That's a very good way of putting it Kev... The car has a very determined look on its face - in much the same way as an Ami 6 does...

Not that I’m saying a 306 looks like an Ami6 at all - just their facial expressions are similar...

I know someone who has a Zx volcane turbo diesel with the same engine which had been tweaked with a bigger turbo etc , it eventually went BANG !!!!! , and he's had to buy some forged pistons etc now .
