the body is shot, look like is had some series accident damage trowelled over, but looked mechanically very good, engine has a bit of condensation in the filler but very very clean

Cant see how - a PRV would NEVER fit in a Xantia... is a 90 deg V to start with not a 60 deg..

The heads are VERY wide apart, they fill the XM engine bay....

Not so long ago I'd have been thinking V6 upgrade to my TCT, I must be getting old!

Anyone who ownes a TCT and has not upped the boost is utterly nuts, it will easily give 12v performance and all for the price of a couple of pints ;).,

I think Dean might be referring to a dump valve, which one of my turbos originally had fitted, except it kept bringing up the engine management light! Not sure that I noticed much difference in the performance without. One thing you cannot match is the sound of a V6, 12 or 24v!! With regards, Matthew T.
