berlingo gti 6
#1
hi there folks i have owned this berlingo for over a year but then the cambelt snappedSad.so had to think about a new engine and a friend knew a mate who had a rear end smashed peugeot 306 GTI6. my friend said that he had been told it would fit in my berlingo. so we stripped the engine out the van then stripped the pug and ripped out the engine complete with car loom and fuse box etc.

Next step was to rip out the old loom and install the pug loom. bit of modifying and the loom was fitted all engine was wired up. next interior dash out modify dash to accept the pug 306 clocks. re-wire a few items but handy being a auto electrican for a few years helps. so not costing me a pennyBig Grin as trying to do it on a budget.

Next step remove fuel tank and fuel lines. fit the new tank had to modify the fuel filler neck but all sweet and fuel is flowing. cranking getting fuel to injectors but no sparkSad. so done a bit of research and thought the ecu may be locked so got a mate to plug in his dianostic equipment. he said we had no power as the clocks didnt light up after we had plugged them in. so we checked fuses and noticed display fuse had blown changed that and off she fired running on all 4 sweet bit noisy as only had manifold and cat on:p. . Now to bleed the water system.

more to come

Hope you changed the cambelt on the donor as they are prone to early failure. What gearbox are you using? The 6 speed will make the already poor turning circle even worse, the xsara vts 5 speed box would be a straight fit.

Keep the updates coming, have you thought about the supercharger mod too? Low boost about 250 bhp, high boost 350 + bhp in a lingo would be ultimate sleeper

Hi. I'm thinking of doing the same kind of engine transplant to my berlingo mk2. It looks like there's a lot of things to do in order to fit the engine into the berlingo. Did you make any modifications to the engine mounting or is it a straight fit? My biggest question is, will the GTI gearbox fit into my berlingo or in that matter will any of the pug's gearbox fit into a berlingo mk2? I'm thinking of fitting an auto box into the berlingo as well. Thanks.

This is so cool, one thing I miss from my days on car forums for whatever I was driving, was seeing crazy stuff like this!

Awesome mate, looking forward to seeing the result!

Not so messy side of dash

akhish i dont know about the engine bay mounts on the mk2 berlingo. this is the first french vehicle i have done as i have done many vws but never french. the main struggle is the electrics they were not easy as french electrics are a nightmare.
