Engine Replacement Query BH5 Twin Turbo Manual

5 posts in this topic

Hi team,

 

I have unfortunately seen myself victim to the bottom end bearing failed in the BH5 wagon.

 

With full faith in the vehicle, it did really well, ALMOST hitting a milestone of 300,000kms.

 

I am looking to replace the engine with a second hand variant; I’ve found one out of a 2002 GTB E-tune, travelled 150kms in my local area. Could anyone confirm whether the Auto and Manual (my car) had the same engine for the respective 2002 MY? I see the autos seem to be de-tuned somewhat, but assume the actual engine remained the same?

 

Here’s a picture of the car and how close I got to the milestone. The vehicle has never had the engine apart before, nor any head work!

Thanks for steering me in the right direction

I've never had a 206 in person, but from everything I've read and seen in the past they are the same as the 208 "Strictly speaking Rev-D 206/208" I'm confident it will swap strait in, you might even find the 206 has been thrashed less because its been bolted to an auto all its life.

Thanks for that.
I assumed it would be too! The engine looks factory, no bolt on pod filters and weird vacuum hoses to be seen!
Appreciate the follow up; I was unsure if anyone still existed on here!

      Hiya, would anyone in/near Wellington have a spare passenger floor mat for a 2006 Legacy b4? I’ve looked at a few aftermarket options but I’d like to find an original. Cheers!
