106 XSi 16v (soon to be road rally car)

Bought an XSi track day car the other week off Louis. Here's the spec and some pictures for those who don't know the car.

ENGINE/TRANSMISSION:
1.6 16v saxo VTs engine with 80k,
Kent Cams pt51 camshafts,
J4 adjustable pulleys,
Stainless 4-2-1 manifold heatwrapped with 50ft of 2mm 1.5" wrap,
Peugeot sport group N stainless 2.5 inch bore (2inch tip) exhaust manufactured by scorpion,
Group N semi solid engine mounts (stiff as hell),
Raceland enclosed induction system with cut and modified scuttle for maximum airflow,
Re-mapped ECU (only proof is RR graph curve)
Running 153.4bhp and 132ftlbs of torque,
Mankee Cheng 1.4 XSi gearbox, rebuilt with uprated diff bearings and new syncros, VERY close ratio,
High pressure race compound clutch kit by black diamond,
1.6 GTi driveshafts with central bearing to eliminate torque steer,
Nissen alloy radiator,
Pacet 12" carbon composite Fan.

SUSPENSION:
Bilstein B8 sports dampers alround (380!)
Eibach - 50mm springs
Custom build SOLID wishbone setup with aluminium rear bushes and nylon centre bushes (fantastic modification and very expensive!),
GTi rear axel with 24mm ARB,
GTi front struts with vertical droplinks,
22mm front ARB.
'FLO FLEX' polyurethane bushes throughout the ENTIRE car (very very stiff)
Top strut housings drilled for later 3 stud type.
custom built 'caged manufaturing' lower strut brace powder coated orange,
Lemforder steel Droplinks,

INTERIOR:
Not much in here!
11point completely custom built role cage built by Dan Trout of 'caged manufacturing', an outstanding piece of kit built to FIA standards and fitted with a tunnel brace and harness bars, unbelievably good quality! powder coated orange (1200!)
Ektor bucket seats with sliding subframes,
Sabelt 4 point harnesses,
Sparco safari 2 arm suede steering wheel,
Entirely stripped interior, cargo netted rear quarters for storage.

BRAKES:
Rear brake disc conversion running 247mm brembo discs and red dot pads.
266mm big brake conversion on the front running brembo max high carbon discs and mintex 1144 pads (both brand new)
Braided stainless steel lines front and rear.
306 GTi brake servo (very large)
406 saloon 4 port 23mm master cylinder.
Brake lines run through car interior via a central mounted willwood fully adjustable bias valve,

Exterior:
205 1.9 GTi speedline alloys fully refurbed and powder coated orange and then wrapped in Yoko Parada spec 2 tyres,
Shilaber race designs fibreglass bonnet with 'x brace' support and drilled for airflow to filter,
Classy black sunstrip (essential for track days)
405 spray bars for windscreen,
106 S1 Rallye brake vents













Very impressed with the car so far! Looking to get back into rallying so will be changing the front suspension and the usual guards etc.

Only changed the wheels for some black VTS wheels. And steadily building up a collection of parts. On the lookout for some coilovers and preferably PSF gravel dampers! Might do a track day in it first to get used to it.

Also trying to source a PAS quick rack! Going to talk to Quaife, and also been speaking to Harry Hockley Motorsport. They have a quick rack from a Corsa on their project car. They've had to remove the front bulkhead and fabricate a new one. Hoping to maybe get something sorted as it would definately help in my opinion!

Yeh its made by Caged. Its an excellent bit of kit, very good workmanship! I spoke to a few companies, and something could be done but it would need some development. Harry Hockley have used a Corsa b electric steering setup which is supposed to work quite well on their maxi. I'm just going to fit a GTi PAS rack for now.

Been a while since I updated my blog. Done a fair bit to it since. I've plated over the sunroof, fitted and plumbed in the hydraulic handbrake, fitted grp N bilsteins all round with Ghost Developments coilover kit. Replaced the bonnet with a standard one, fitted the tank guards and fuel filler guard. Also bought a Sump Guard off Rally Weld Fabrications, so that needs to be fitted. Other than that, its almost done bar a few interior lights and fitting the trip meter. Hopeful of making a rally on the 1st May, its been a while and can't wait to get back in the saddle! Will try get some pictures up over the weekend.

Do have some pictures around somewhere. Car is in the garage minus a gearbox. Blew the diff on the last one and I've got a s1 rallye box to go in this weekend. Will give an update this weekend hopefully, as a lot has changed since I got the car.

Few pictures of how it stands now. Next event is the Illuminations Rally on 23rd October. Still undecided on what power steering setup but it also depends on the outcome of my research into getting Quaife to manufacture a quick rack. As far as I'm aware a sample has been sent off so I'm just waiting for a response. I hope to get a group buy together as I'll need 20 in order for them to go ahead with it.

Other plans for the car are to maybe get a quaife diff next year, or dependant on how I feel about things next year it may be changed for something RWD!

No, I was due to an event last weekend and it got cancelled and didn't fancy any other events. So I wasn't planning on doing the breidden but when I looked into it there was a full entry. I'm planning on doing the Illuminations then the Harvest (road rally part of it), and then after that I'm not sure.

Received the corsa column setup from kiwi on Friday and fitted it on saturday. Not quite fitted perfectly yet, needs a bit more modifying and it'll sit perfect. Had to remove the heater fan which ideally I'd like to keep so I'll see if I can modify it to fit with the column in place. Might need a bit of chopping down. Here's a quick pic of the column, really nice bit of kit tbh.
