R570 BOU Indigo S2

Hi All,

After owning this Rallye (R570 BOU) for two years I am finally getting round to making this thread




So in my ownership I haven't done much to the Rallye as its a fairly clean example, dispite being a CAT D write off



I bought the Rallye with a couple of modifications which include, pug sport 2" exhaust, 4-2-1 mainifold (not sure of the brand) and braided brake lines. The car still has the original 8V engine with around 160K miles on the clock.

Personal touches I have done: GTI spoiler, colour coded wing mirror covers and blue seat belts from a saxo.



Maintenance work: Brand new rear calipers, new rear brake lines, new clutch, reconditioned the original Rallye gearbox, discs and pads all round, magnecor ht leads, new coil pack, new lambda sensor and general service parts and fluids. I had the wheels re-coated but they need doing again.



There are a couple of problems with the car at the min. one being a slight misfire hence why I fitted new coil pack and leads and the lambda sensor as it is over fuelling.

But none of this solved this misfire.

Second problem is, there is a slight crunching noise when changing in to 3rd gear, as if the clutch isn't disengaging properly, doesn't happen if I let the revs drop all the way down.

Any ideas on these issues are much appreciated!


PHOTOS TO FOLLOW SHORTLY!!

That is looking pretty shiny!

Doesn’t look like a Cat D - was it the engine?

Thanks Cris, I detail cars in my spare time so its well looked after!

The engine is the standard 8V, how ever I have a refurbished S1 Rallye inlet but I am unsure whether or not to fit it?

EDIT: It's a CAT D as I believe it was bumped in a supermarket car park in 2013 on the drivers side front, needing a wing, door, wheel and bottom arm.





Some more content...

The Rallye was the first car of my own that I took on track. Full day at Oulton Park!

Was the best day/experience I've had! Car was pretty much faultless apart from a flat/dead spot occurred in the steering. No idea what this problem was so I managed to source a brand new Peugeot steering rack with all the necessary parts! I quickly has this replaced and was like new again!

Best part of the day was that the Rallye used less than a full tank of fuel to drive there, around the track and home again!







Since then I have taken my Clio RS200 on track and TBH the Rallye was more fun!

I thinks the s1 inlet and plenum is quite a good bit of kit and unless you are running Throttle bodies should be retained...on a 1.3. Might be restrictive on a 1.6, don’t know!

I was told the S1 inlet flows a little bit better ( how true this is I don't know) and the noise from the metal inlet is meant to be amazing!

Long time & no update...

So the Rallye failed MOT on ball joints, new bottom arms where fitted which did reduce the play but it turns out the bottom of the strut has ovalised, so last night I got hold of some struts and Koni front & rear dampers to rebuild everything.

Struts have gone for shot blasting and coating so hopefully these will last a long time.

So had some spare time this bank holiday weekend and removed the old suspension.



The conclusion was very worn wheel bearings on both sides and the bottom of the drivers side strut has ovalised by a good half inch, the passenger side was worn but not quite as bad!



Ignore the rusty disc, I left that leg out side by accident



Currently as is sits, need to clear more stuff out of the garage, will have more room to play then!

So, that's all the new/refubed suspension built up. Be on the car this weekend!







Koni sport dampers going in!





Can really see the difference in the size ball joint hole!

Attended a show this weekend at Locke Park in Barnsley!

Getting sick of people calling the Rallye a Citroen Saxo!







I have also book a ticket for the Sunday at Pugfest & will be on the RR stand, hopefully see some of you there!

Seen as I am hopefully going to pugfest this Sunday, I thought I better replace my broken arch!





Yes I know the bumper bracket needs replacing! Guessing this is what is causing the bumper to hang down.



Also thanks to Infamous_Aidy I now have a plug for my air temp sensor!
