20th May 2009, 23:11
Hello, my name is Tim, i'm from The Netherlands and I'm the proud owner of a gold saxo 1.4 VTS for a few months now. 1.4 VTS? yes it's a common model in Europe allmost simular to the furio or the westcoast in the UK,

When I bought the car it had run 80000 km and allready had some nice mods. The car allready was lowred, I've looked under the car a few times but I can't find out wich lowering kit was used. There also where some nice alloys: 15" CMS Nemesis with michelin 195/45 15V78 tyres. Under the car there where allready a supersprint cat-back centre pipe and a Supersprint Magnum backbox installed. At last there was also a GT136 alarm system installed.

I've been doing some mods myselve:
- Raceland 4-2-1 manifold
- Raceland closed induction system
- Sebring stainless steel decat pipe
- Compbrake quickshift
- De-pinned the doors
- Upper front strutbrace
- Some ICE: Kenwood KDC-BT8041U head unit, 2 x MTX XT502, 2 x MTX XT693 and a JBL BASS PRO II active subwoofer

Some pics:

And a movie how it sounds:

Things to do:
- installing a VTR TB whit inlet mani
- Replacing the raceland air-filter cone for a green/k&n/pipercross replacement(any suggestions???)
- Do a good check if the exhaust system isn't blowing
- Replacing the door pannels with plane black ones
- Flushing & bleeding the radiator and engine because the engine gets to hot to quick and there is brown stuff in the resorvoir
- Wrapping the mani
- Fixing the front bumber(there is a small gap between the bumber and the right headlight)
- Replacing the rearlight with saxo mk1 rearlights
- Lightweight alloy crankshaft pulley
- Fixxing up and painting the alloys(thinking about painting them some sort of black)
- Cleaning up the enginebay

In the future when my wallet allows it:
- Race seats
- Race cams and a remap
- Or even better a VTR or VTS 16V engine

So let me know what you think about it and if you got some suggestions or tips for me...

21st May 2009, 17:36
Thanks mates but I want to keep the rear whipper but maby i'm going to replace it with a flat wipper so it does't look so huge. Giving the windows a tint is a great idea! And i want to paint the grill or the citroen logo first.

that is indeed a nice color for the alloys. maby i'm also going to spray the grill in the same color.

finally found an bought a inlet mani including sensors and TB for a VTR from Sparco_Tom(thanks mate), hopefully it gets here next week so i can fit it on to the car. Up next: finding a decent replacement filter for in my raceland airbox. suggestions anyone?

Little update: Bin bussy yesterday, i've painted my upper torsion bar black because when i bought it was very rusty and not so nice colored
http://img41.imageshack.us/img41/8831/veerpootbrugzwart.jpg

also meshed my grill what was a hell of a job because my dremell tool stoped working after 5 minutes:n: so i had to do al the cutting by hand. Not yet happy with the result as the grill doesnt fit nicely anymore

I've also orded a light weight alloy crank pully, alternator pulley and belt thanx to the saxperience group buy:y:

I've stopped searching for a green replacement filter for my raceland enclosed and bought an other filter and fitted it today:

http://img3.imageshack.us/img3/3285/17374839.jpg
It sounds much better then the original raceland cone:p Also repaired the meshed grille, looks much better now, still thinking of color coding it or painting the whole grille black. Any sugestions?

It has been a while since my last post, but I've been very bussy with my saxo.

-I fitted the crank pulley, great mod btw, still have to fit the alternator pulley because i diddn't had the right tools at the time.
-I've bought some new tyres, Admiral 712 195/45 R15 78V , they where pretty cheap but still pretty satisfied about them.
-Bought a new shorter black aerial, the old one broke in the car wash:n:
-Got the sax-p stickers on the rear windows and one on the boot
-replaced the green dial LED's with blue ones(broke the low fuel warning led and the high temp led but still bussy sorting this out)
-replaced the interior light bulbs with blue LED's
-finally fitted a TU5JP(came from a pug 306) inlet mani and TB
-heat wrapped my mani

As we speak the saxo is in the garage for a new headgasket so the overheating problem will be solved very soon. Also they are gone fit a Kentcam pt40 camshaft:y::y::y: Can't wait until friday and see/feel the result!!!

Still on the way:

-ordered some chrome second hand angel eyes for 60 pound, maby gona smoke them because i want to have a black & gold theme(how original)
-ordered smoked rears for 20 pounds!!!
-ordered a black leather momo gear knob

Will upload some pics tonight

Finally it's cammed!!! Car idle's fine and the improvement in performance is great. I notice there is alot of more power between 3000 and 5000 rpm. here a video how it sounds:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U1HZd-SyF2M

maybe going to add a vernier pulley for some fine tuning

Also fitted my angels, look great. Orded some osram nightbreakers to add

So far i've got:
- Kentcam PT40 camshaft
- Raceland airbox with replacement filter
- Lightweight crankpulley
- Raceland 421 mani
- Sebring decat pipe
- Supersprint straight cat-back centre pipe
- Supersprint Magnum Backbox

The big question??? How many BHP would i have???

There is a 1.4 VTS on the continent.

26th September 2009, 23:03
Finally got the cam in I see. :)

My VTR made 110bhp at standard timing with the PT40 and breathing mods. Best power (117.9bhp) was made at 2 degrees advanced from standard timing... Wizzy's made best power at 1 degree advanced. I'd fit a vernier pulley (be careful not to rotate the cam when sliding it on), adjust the timing to 1 degree advanced, then 2 degrees advanced - see if it feels any better.

Results may be more clear cut on the rollers but I'm pretty confident you'll see best power with the PT40 in the region of standard timing to 2 degrees advanced. :)

I'm looking arround for a vernier pulley so definitely going to try it soon. So what do you think? I added 20 bhp?

Liam_
27th September 2009, 11:25
10 - 20bhp would be reasonable estimation I think. :)

Wizzy
27th September 2009, 11:30
Agreed, 20bhp could be feasable with an adjustable pulley. It would be worth while getting it set up on a rolling road so you can get the best from it.

kistigun
27th September 2009, 16:16
ok thanks fot the comment guys, going to look for a vernier pulley and a rolling road in the area. I'm really currious to see how much bhp the car has.

Also I've put in some Osram nightbreakers in the angels and have to say they are great, really a difference of night and day!!!

I'm still on the look out for a 8V vernier pulley, powerflex lower engine mount and some uprated linkages so if you have one please let me know.

I bought it from Blue_Devil for 70 pounds, did not yet install it because i'm currently bussy with some cooling issues and new alloys & snowtyres. Don't know yet when i'm going to install it because im currently looking at the possibilty to change my head for a 1.6 head.

The baker pulley is supposed to be good, you can check out LeeumH old progress thread. He had one on his old VTR

nice car mate, but have you thought about fitting a 106 rallye 1.3 8v head and inlet/throttle body? thats what im doing to my vtr as the throttle body is made out of aluminum and is apparently 3 times bigger then my vtr one and it gives the car an immense induction roar and the rallye head has got a better cam in it over the vtr one so you would probably make more bhp out of the rallye bits over the vtr bits but im guessing you will put the kentcam in the new head? so maybe just fit the rallye inlet?? plus the rallye inlet looks lovely imo

I'm currently looking in to a head conversion. Checking out swapping with a vtr head and keeping the cam of course. Don't know if a rallye head would fit? also on the look out for a rallye inlet but they are quit expensive and i hear they are a pain to fit. But they do look great especially if you paint or polisch them;)

Little update: today i finnally bought a green filter & green carter filter for 22,-:hug: just fitted it and the car sounds a lot meaner :panic: also a simota airbox is on the way in stead of the raceland airbox(i know they are the same) Also i'm going to my first Saxo/106 meeting in Eindhoven this sunday. will shoot some pics for sax-p;)

can't see why it wouldn't but like i said just get the rallye inlet then, the only reason I'm fitting a rallye head is because the cam is better than my vtr one but as your changing the cam then no point in fitting a rallye head but nothing is stopping u fit a rallye inlet :P lol but completely up to you

16th November 2009, 17:39
S1/ S2 rallye head will have non-roller rockers so you can't use the PT40 with either. I think people have looked into doing this before and getting the loom plugs to mate up to the rallye ones isn't easy.

As for fitting the S1 inlet and throttle body, I'm not sure whether the later Furio engine has the same port spacing as the 98bhp VTR for the inlet. If so, the rallye inlet won't fit but you could always fit a 98bhp inlet manifold.

yea you've got a good point with the cam not fitting, his inlet port spacing will be the same as my 90bhp vtr, just cant wait to fit my rallye inlet i think they look sexy lol anyway sorry to hijack the thread the car really does look good :P

Yours looks great but it's also a lot of work... need the car almost every day so it has to wait untill i get some time off.

I've bought the paint at a dutch webshop (http://www.spuitbuswinkel.nl/) it's pretty expensive... 35,- for one can! Email them maby they ship to the UK.

Got some styling plans:
- Pilot HID for the angels
- Smoking the fogs
- Meshing & painting the rear ibiza splitter(gold mesh;))
- Maybe front & rear brows
- Maybe widemouth
- Painting the CMS alloys black with gold detailing
- Flat whipers

Tuning plans:
- Still need to install my vernier pulley
- Maby a TU5JP head
- Remap
- ...got alot of ideas but no money:n:

Fitted a 4 point lower strut brace:

Really like the lights. Don't like the bumpstrips for some reason though or that rear splitter.
