Peugeot 505 Turbo Project

Recommended Posts

Hello 505 fans!

Have been visiting this forum for a time now, but never register. The summer is coming and its time for spend more time with our 505 project.
So I decide to register and write some lines about our cars and our projects.
When I write our i mean me and my father.

My father purchased his first 505 for like 17 years ago (!). For like 3 years ago we got a phone call from a 505 owner, and told us that he had two
505 for sale. One of this two cars had been modified, the old owner told us it had a engine at 250 - 300HP. No questions about it, we bought
the two 505. That was the kickoff for our projects. For 2 years ago we purchased another 505, this 505 had less rust and is in good condition.
For the moment we got 4 505s, and our backyard looks like a car park ;-)

I have put up a gallery with all our cars. My plan is to update the gallery when we make progress with our project.
505 Gallery


Project 1
Year: 1987
Engine: N9TE

First step is removing rust and repairing chassie. Many parts have been sand blasted and painted.
The first step is work in progress at the moment.
After the first step we gonna start with the engine. Plans for the engine; bigger turbo, intercooler, new injectors, bigger exhaust pipe,
"bigger" fuel pump (for more pressure) , etc.

And for the exterior; we are planing to put on 17 rims and maybe new paint.

Project 2
Year: 1986
Engine: N9TE

This car we purchased for like 17 years ago. Last year we did a engine swap.
The new engine have some minor modifications; more boost, ported intake manifold and
cylinder head. We are planing to putting in bigger injectors and add more fuel pressure.

Project 3

Hi!

Welcome to the forum. Looks like there are many 505 owners from Scandinavia on this forum now. ;-)

Your cars are all newer facelift model. In European 505 models, the first series is 1979-1985 and the second series is 1986->. If you're interested, you can download some 505 material in PDF files from my web site: http://peugeot505.info.

Thanks!

The old owner told us that it was modified and had about 250-300hp, what the have done was;
* Modified ECU
* Other camshaft
* Other cylinder head
* More boost.

I gona look up what the camshaft and the cylinder head is, there was no documentation with the car when we purchase it.
Only that I know about the cylinder head is that we have to use small sparkplugs (sparkplugs thats fited to motorcycles). If that can help to give a hint what the cylinder head is.

It sounds like you have a "Danielson head" if it uses 10 mm spark plugs and probably a Danielson spec cam too! Consider yourself lucky! :-) For more information, search this forum with "danielson head" and "danielson stage" etc.

I would be interested in knowing more about the ECU; is there a custom ECU or how is the original modified?

Welcome D00zer!

That's quite the find I must say. All the hard to get parts are on the car - you just need to refresh and restore - AWESOME! Glad to see that you guys are going to those lengths to bring it back to it's glory.

They're fantastic cars and worth every bit the effort!

Any chance you know where the previous owner got hold of the danielson kit?

You are a lucky bastard!

I would like to know more about that ecu too.

If it's the oem ecu then the only mod that I've heard of was something I read on peugeot-l about changing resistor to raise the rpm-limit.

Time for some update!

The Junk car have been stripped down and we send away the chassi to the junkyard. So now we "only"
got three 505s. My father have bought a new car, a Renault Laguna. So now we got another 505 project car to build on.

Check out the cars here at our gallery

But for now we building on the Project 1 car. This summer we haven't done so much work. We are planing to get it on wheels before the snow comes, and start working with the engine during the winter.

Today we borrowed one 18'' rim with tier (from my friends Nissan 200sx). We are building adapter so we can
fit rims with 4x114.3 bolt pattern.
The ET on the Nissan rim was to much, but it was just a test. And i think the 505 looks good with black and silver rims.

On Monday we gonna purchase 16'' rims to the project car so we can start to fit the adapters.

What else have we done with the project car? Mounted the back wagon, suspension on the front (all part have been sand blasted and painted). And I have cleaned the interior, the past owner had a dog and i think the dog have left all his hair inside the car... But after some hours of vacuum-cleaning I manage to get it away rolleyes.gif

Look at the project 1 gallery for pictures what we have done.

Thats all for now smile.gif

D00zer - awesome job getting that car back into great shape.

Should be interesting to hear how it runs after you get it all back together - I suspect it will be WELL worth the effort you guys are putting into it.

Drilling new bolt pattern - PART I

Today I and my father was to my fathers work (he works as mechanic). At his work they got the right tools to do the drilling of new bolt pattern for the project car.

One of my fathers colleague have custom made a center spacer and a spacer, the spacer is milled from a Hyundai hub (4x114.3). We used the center spacer and the spacer as a template when drilling.

The drilling went well. Have some minor problems when squeezing on the bolts, but manage to get i right.

Today we manage to drill all four hubs and finished one hub (drilling, spacer and bolts). We test fitted the finished hub on the new rims and it fitted very well and we are pleased with the result! B)

Tomorrow we going back and try to complete the 3 remaining hubs.

And some bad news. The server where I have all the pictures in a gallery have died. Due a hard drive crash.

I will try to talk with my friend that own the server to fix the problem so i can put up the gallery again.

That looks great!

So what are the specs on wheels themselves? When I was looking the spacer thickness had to be quite thick to clear the strut with FWD offsets.

Can't wait to see the finished result!
