You would run the engine loom and ECU off the 16v VTS engine.

The engine loom may need splicing into the VTR loom which connects on the right hand side of engine bay.

I have done the conversion on my 1995 Series 1, 106 XSi.

It seems to be hit or miss with the later models as to whether you need to splice the 2 engine looms together. As some S2 rallyes are just plug n play 16v conversion whilst others require to be spliced. Typical Peugeot oddness Smile So I am not sure whether your saxo would actually wiring.

The fuel return would be on the VTS injectors/fuel rail, so you should just be able to run a suitable pipe back to the tank. Sounds easy, but I wouldn't know if the VTR fuel tank would accept it. Or if you would have to change the fuel pump aswell.

I will have a look on my XSi, as its running a VTS lump if its of any use.

If you know anyone with a saxo VTS have a good nose around their car Smile

thanks for the advice mate my plan is to buy a vts from the same year so then the loom would be the same type also the ecu would be the same type .... obviosuly id need to unlock the vts ecu to make it work.. as for the fuel return done some research and basicly theres a port on the vtr pump that can house the new fuel return ...

people on saxo forum say that i could do the conversion for under 500 pound if i do most of work myself which i am attempting too.


never been a bright spark with electronic side of things ....

I made a profit on my conversion Smile

I picked up a full conversion kit including VTS engine, loom, struts, brakes, driveshafts etc. for 250 on ebay I sold on what I did not need and sold my XSi engine in bits.

My conversion did not cost me a penny even with a 100 induction kit on top Smile

Are you planning on buying a written off VTS? As otherwise why not just keep the VTS rather than tearing it apart Smile
