    Brentwood Autos have a Pug V6 engine in there storage area, was looking at it today.

    Looks a lot bigger than the GM V6.

    The owner of PUG 1 OFF brought his newly finished V6 205 down our local cruise the other week.

    It had no front bar where the bonnet catch goes (don't know what its called). Radiator was behind the rear bumper!!!

    sounds interesting, we have had to transfer the brake servo and master cylinder to the other side because it gets in the way.
    Its a bit of a nightmare, this thing is going to be mental

    Yes mate was bright orange, amazing car to look at because it is so well done.

    He said the driveshafts were ridiculously short, they have been sleeved and pinned if that makes any sense to you?

    Is the crossmember the part where the bonnet catch goes? His did not have that part, had a strut brace instead. It's also on a Coupe gearbox too.

    Sorry thats all I can remember, couldn't talk to him too much because everyone kept asking him "is it fast?"

    Year we have have to chop the driveshafts and are in the process of making the sleves, the cross member is the bit right underneath where the steering rack bolts to, would take some pictures but not to sure how to get them up, the bit where the bonnet catch goes we decided to cut to go around the engine,
    thanks for your help tho, any advice is great as I want to try and keep his bill down.

    Anyone know of any small radiators?
