my head gasket is missing! THinking i might save a fair few quid on insurance with a mi16 (then blow it all with no economy!), and i went to the garage this morning to find petrol at 88.9ppl which has to be tempting!

Put the Mi back in, give in the engine it deserves! :lol:

Plus mine pulled 181 miles out of £20 worth of petrol the other week, they're not as thirsty as you might think. Involved driving like a vicar, but still it was cheap!! :oops:

Good going Kitch, hoping mine will be that economical once I've sorted the exhaust! My girlfriend has a 1 litre Polo and is constantly amazed at how much petrol my car drinks :oops:

footnote: look at us comparing economy, on the 16v forum... what have we become?! :shock:

Its looking VERY much like i might be returning to a petrol after all! This will be the first petrol i have had and indeed driven any great distance! Petrol is the devils fuel and if i can find a decent reason to put another diesel engine in i will, but so far its NOT looking good for the dirty fuel :(

the Who?, no wait thats a band! :D


Thus far its looking interesting, and have foudn that with a 16v engine i can get fully comp insurance allowing me to drive other cars for less than what i'm paying at the moment! Something i really like the idea off!


Engine, loom, fuel pump, exhaust, ancillaries, fuel tank (drain and flush) new filler neck (just sold one too!), HP Pump, HP Pump piping, FDV :( any body think of anything else? Gonna keep the current TD rad/fans setup as its a HUGE improvement over the original (enough to keep a blown HG cool!)

No way of fitting your Xantia pump to the D6C mate? That'd be cool!

Other than making a mount and sticking it above the gearbox AND changing the pulley AND making a custom pipe, then not mcuh chance in hell really :( WOuld prefer it, really changed the responce time of the 19rd's hydraulics without any significant explosions of hydraulic pipes!
