  1. Hello. Did you get any time to measure the flange pattern yet? 😎 Ronny
  2. Flywheel and clutch on my turbo is 235mm. Is the older ones 215 like the NA-cars?
  3. I guess that probably will be the way to go with my turbo, if the flange is interchangeable with the 505 without modifications.
  4. Its quite easy to get adaptors from kkk to T3 flanges, so if the 505 used a kkk-design, then I might just get a adaptor? Bean: Are you able to measure the bolt pattern on one?
  5. Still not cheap, but did you use Canada post, or what did you use? Here I tried calculating a 15x10x5in parcel with a weight of 10 lbs.
  6. In that case, I would rather like a spare one from a parts car or something, so I dont ruin the only original I have for my car. If its possible to find? Unless its possible to find a ready build proper manifold with T3 flange?
  7. What is different? The bolt holes, the outlet or both? Is it possible to modify it, like on the Volvos with flanges different from the T3?
  8. I actually have a GTX2860R turbo with T3 flange, that I originally bought to another car. Which I've now sold. So my plan was to use that turbo, with a stand alone ecu and other injectors etc. But I might change the 5-bolt flange and put on a 3" exhaust temporary. While i further develop the rest of the car. I'll still need some proper suspension so I can use my Gotti wheels.
  9. Finally! After a year, I now have a proper clutch! This is actually my original pressure plate that Spec clutch rebuild for me. As the first part they sent was for the normal 505's and not the turbo. I had to ship my original clutch, as that was the only way for them to do this work. Their suppliers couldn't get the right size. Clamp pressure is now 1900lbs and the clutch is rated and tested to 449 ftlb or 609nm!
  10. Regarding proper fueling etc, thats my thought as well. And also I have read somewhere that the cars have had a tendency to run lean when original? That can very easy create problems. I will probably run this car with a wideband lambda from day one. So I have full control of what´s going on with this old system before I think of using the car hard. Even before I start changing the turbo and ecu etc. Regarding sodium valves. They can often break when under hard strain. And of course result in catastrophic consequences for the engine as a whole.
  11. My engine had a rod knock, so I needed new rods anyway. Regarding pistons, I have never needed to change pistons on my turbo builds (not Peugeot btw). And I´ve always used original head gaskets. So I never saw the reason to do that in this engine either. Mostly it´s about adjusting for the correct AFR and advance. And hope that not old exhaust valves brake. Are these sodium filled btw? Or are they stainless or something else?
  12. Hello Wales. I've always used the pre assembled setups from Diyautotune. I buy the ecu assembled, and then a harness in the preferred length I need. And then it's about 10 hours of work with soldering and positioning of the harness depending on where I put the ecu and sensors. Then another couple of hours with software based setup before I can think about trying to start the car. And from then on, normally there is some troubleshooting with sensors etc for a couple of days before the car actually starts. 😂 It all depends what I want to use of old sensors etc.
  13. I dont like using a original clutch in as good condition as mine, for rebuild. But it was all I had. Mine is a 3+ btw, and still sprung, as you can se from the pictures. 😊 For aftermarked ecu I will be using MS3X probably. As I basically have been owning at least one car with megasquirt since 2007/2008, continuously. At the moment, two of my Alfa´s has it set up. So I´m somewhat experienced with their systems. 😊
  14. Hello people!. I´m still struggling with this old girl. Not with the work as I dont do that myself now, but with organizing and sourcing parts that are pretty much impossible to get hold of. Last update is that I ordered a Spec clutch 3+ clutch kit as this baby is going to be properly tuned when I get it back. But apparently, Spec Clutches had the same information about diameter and pressure plate dimensions for the NA and the Turbo engines. This of course didn´t fit my car (as the turbo has about 20mm larger diameter clutch). So I (that live in Norway), had to organize for my contact where my car is (in Lithuanina) to get his mechanics to ship the new AND the old clutch to Spec Clutches in USA. So they again can special make a one of clutch from rebuilding the original pressure plate (as their supplier of plates has discontinued the turbo plate), and make a new friction plate to go with it. I cant say it´s been a easy task sourcing parts for this project! 😂 I´ll attach a couple of pictures of the clutch issue, and how the car is parked at the moment.
  15. Where are you located, Endre? I bought my parts from https://www.mespiecesauto.com/?swoof=1&product_cat=peugeot-505-turbo-injection My engine now has the forged rods as well, but original pistons. And currently my clutch is in USA, so spec clutch can spesial make one for me, as they didnt have anything that fit the car.
