    hi there
    we have a elddis autostratus ck based on a 1998 peugeot boxer 2.5 d 88 bhp we have problems when we come to hills im for ever changeing gears i was wondering will a later day turbo engine fit straight in or will the engine mounts need to be replaced.i was thinking of a peugeot 2.2 hdi or any peugeot engine which will fit without to much trouble .
    best regards john and teena:Doh:

    not sure about the mounts, probably different.
    as could the drive shafts/gearbox
    could be wrong but i think the HDI engines have electronicaly controlled injection pump/injectors so wont be any use.

    you probably need the turbo version of your original engine and the exhaust system to suit it.

    or an aftermarket turbo kit.

    you can to a lot of engines.....even seen one on a Lada 4X4:Eeek:

    type...aftermarket peugeot turbo kits...into a search and see what comes up.

    only problem is a lot of non-turbo engines arent strong enough for the extra power of a turbo.:Sad:

    Got it in one.Same goes for the transmission and brakes....

    Plus the insurance needs to be notified and if it isn't done right.....:Doh:

    You can get detonation due to different compression ratios of turbo and non-turbo engines too.

    Correct. The combustion chamber is a different shape (lower compression ratio in non turbo) and the pistons, conrods and crank are not built for the extra power of a turbo. I know because I looked into adding a turbo to my 1.9 motor. In fact, some early Peugeot 1.9 non turbo engines were wrongly fitted with turbos by the factory and had to be recalled.

    You could look out for a scrap or very cheap van the same as your base vehicle but fitted with a more powerful engine. Buy it, then look for a mechanic that will swap everything over. Failing that, sell the MH and find one already fitted with a better engine.

    Good luck :Smile:

    I had to swap the engine in mine. £80 from breakers, £20 remove and deliver, £150 for a mate to do the actual swap with me helping and about £50 for new cam belt, oil, filter etc. Total £300 and one rainy weekend. I even got a guarantee from the breakers. No doubt a bigger engine will cost more but the other costs would be about the same.
