No, Rob, a V6 BX isn't a good idea.
It's certainly *way* beyond what you can do on your drive.

Well, yes, in theory, it's an excellent idea.
But this is Rob's idea. Which means it'll stop at angle grinding the front of the car out.

You won't get one in the BX anymore than you got a V8 in the Punto :-)

I've heard they're ideally suited to a transversely mounted, mid-engined, FWD setup on a BX.
I think you'd be much better off going for silly power out of the lump that's already in there myself. Supercharger and turbocharger, that sort of thing.

Didn't Matt Faulks get near 200 BHP out of an n/a 16V BX a few years ago? Cams and head work mainly iirc

Why not spend a couple of hundred on an Mi16 engine instead? Pour the same amount of money in and you'll have 200+bhp!
Or the 2.0 Turbo CT engine.
In fact find a knackered Xantia Activa and then put the engine and the Hydractive suspension into your BX. That would be awesome!

Except: The reason the Xantia is knackered will be something like failed hydropneumagically adjustable glibshafts. If you put the system on a BX it would just be a knackered BX. (c:

Maybe, maybe not. Find one with a knackered engine and you'll be ok - plenty of other places to find one of those!! Or use an XM. You can get a working one for peanuts!!

LOL, and you think you had problems with the 205? Why do you think the 4x4 is free?!!!
Besides, it's still just a BX at the end of the day, it wont have the hydractive suspension!
