s2 indigo rallye

thought id stick some new pics up and keep it updated with what i do. im new to peugeots always been a fan of the 106 and with the rallye being the rare one and not liking the gti image it was the obvious choice and with a freind selling his he had for a few years i jumped at the chance to get it.
ive only ever owned clios had a 172 a imaculate williams a black hybrid that if it wasnt wrote off i wouldnt of sold then a cammed white hybrid. i loved them all but had to have a change as since having a plonker pull out on me and crashing my much cherished black hybrid i lost the love and was few up of doing stuff i had already done.

Think i may aswell put up my thoughts of the drive of the rallye. Its a fun car no doubt, but as is the case with most cars really needs a few things sorting to make the most of it.
I was dissapointed with the height of the driving position so my buckets will sort that and the size of the steering wheel, its huge lol, will really benifit with seats and steering wheel i belive.
Handleing wise i personaly find it doesnt inspire massive amounts of confidence its fun no doubt but in any of my clios i could take a corner without shittin a brick trying to judge what way the back end is going lol. Its part of the fun i supose a car that just sticks and does everyhting you ask of it is going to be quite boring id think.
Pace wise its a nippy little car fun around town but when out on long stretchs of roads it really struggles to thrill my old clio would muller it (170-180 brake) but thats to be expected so comparing them is unfair, im sure with a few mods itll be a great little car. its not failed to make me smile yet and gentle driving around town is easy work and a pleasure to drive for such a raw car.
the thing im most impressed with are the brakes for a standard set up bar hoses there awsome if you need to stop your going to im well impresses with them.
plus 237 quid insurance for the year is a bonus.


so heres the new motor very good condition bought it with the following mods

itg panel filter
magnecore leads
omp upper and lower braces
group n top mounts
group n engine mounts
powerflex arb bushs,wishbone bushs rearbeam bushs
shampar rear wishbone mount
goodrich front and rear hoses
willwood brake bias valve
pugsport full system
raceland 4 branch manifold
de cat
quickshift kit
bilstine sprintline front dampers and springs and rear dampers

some pics from first day of ownership.









few issues i need to sort bit of laqure (sp?) peel on the bonnet
knock from exhaust i think

plans are for the moment
stick my corbeau sprint seats in
my omp targa wheel on
harnesses in
sort the issues
clean it as much as i can to get it looking clean
battery in the rear to distribute some weight.

long term plans are
possible 16v conversion with cams
cage
paint interior indigo
coilovers of some sort.

ill do my best to keep it updated with how things go. need to do some reading up and learn about the cars bit weird not knowing what im doing or what parts are best for the money.
ive also booked my tickets to fcs and for a little stint on the track i wont go mad just be fun to get it on there for a laugh.

Come to Rallye in the park dude, can come out with me on track if you like?

The Rallye is tail happy but shouldn't be too much of a handful for you, failing rear beams can cause major tail happyness. Oh and I swear the standard wheel is from a bus

I think people are struggling now, the favourites were A539's or RE720s, both discontinued Eagle F1's are good, as are T1-Rs but fast wearing apparently.

It's at Mallory park next weekend, loads of us are going up friday night and camping, shows on the Saturday. Should be great!

ok so a little update got a little done over the last few days.

first off was replace the bus sized steering wheel with the omp targa i had from my last clio. i got the boss kit from rally design for 30 quid a decent price i thought.
before

after

much better and made driving alot easyer.

then it was onto the seats i hated the standard seats no suport and far to high, again i had these corbeau sprints left over from my clio.

rails welded in with subframe on to see what it looks like.


the rails were quite high so had to have the seats on the lowest setting this meant they needed trimming for propper fitting



not the best job but i had to be quick ill take them back off for painting and neatening up another time.

seat on


a shot of the brake bias valve quick shift and trimmed subframe


seats in



looking better than before me thinks



then i did a swap with robieroo i think for my interior for a roll cage and carbon door cards.
so got them on bit of improvement i think





they still need a little tidying and sticking down properly but it started raining again so left it at that.

then i started to prep the cage it was painted by what seemed a reetard with gloss paint lol so spent a while chipping it off still got a bit to do but heres some shitty before pics



got plans to mod this weld the cross bar on instead of using the braces then weld a harness bar on.

then last thing i added some aero wipers just abit of a modern touch and perfom alot better than the standard wipers plus there only 8 quid of ebay




thats it for now.

oh and btw in the cage pics the orange and black cage is out my clio you can see where i did the same with that and added a harness bar if anyone wants it its for sale 300 pounds.

just a few shots of how the cage is coming along getting it welded tomorrow, might even have time to give it a lick of paint then thursday ill fit it.
also orderd a helmet net so i can use that to put stuff in as when ive painted the interior i dont want anything scratching it up.

all tubes cut down with a grinder then finished off with a file and hacksaw.
quite proud of the fit but it aint the first time ive done this.











now im also looking for a place to bend me some metal up so i can make the front part.

Looks loads better now than when you got it, have you thought about fitting s1 door handles ? Alot more basic would look nice in a stripped out rallye.

couple new updatesi thought id bosh in put the battery in the back behind passenger seat.





put a hemet net in mainly for when i paint it anything i put in the back wont have to mark it.



then i fancied somthing differnet induction wise and decided on a scuttle kit i havnt seen it done much and it cost alot less than the normal box type jobbys
its a simpe 2 90 degree 63mm internal diameter hoses with a filter on the end.







excuse the zip ties there temp till i get some decent clips for it, first inpressions are it pulls harder top end but you can plant your foot from nothing or it boggs down you just dont plant it and take it abit easyer with the pedal.

also got some pipe for the rocker breather only goes to a fairy liquid bottle atm but thats another thing ill get sometime sooner also did a oil change had fuck all in it as t rockingham the oil light was flashing at me on long left handers.

and heres a few pics from mallory and rockingham

mallory...















rockingham


orderd the print of this one.
