I've currently got an engine sitting under a tarp from a GTX- also have the carb but I don't know if just swapping that over would provide any improvement? Having looked at the Haynes manual I'm under the impression I need a ECU for the Carb?

I don't know if its basically the same engine or not - I presume so

Unsure on the exact spec of your 1360 but lumpy cams and a twin stage soles from a rally's or XS can be had quite cheaply, rebuild kits for those solex's still exist too. 106 tubular manifold can be modified to fit easily too. Getting on for 100bhp shouldn't be hugely out of reach. Once you start looking at twin carbs it gets pricey.

I had a very old... Wait for it... 205 XT. That pre dates the XS and was a 1360 twin carb set up, 80/85bhp I think. Well the cam shaft went south so had a single carb Citroen bx 1360 dropped in it.
We were down to 75bhp so a re fitment of the twin carbs and timing alteration had us back on the rr to the 80/85 again. I'm not technical but certainly I have experience of that mod certainly adding just over 10% power. It went like stink too! Was always somewhat slower than my mates AX GT. I thought they were the same engine.
Would you not consider changing the lump?

I trying to keep it all cheap and cheerful. I considered a GTI lump but then thought no keep it with carbs and no ECU etc. So maybe a twin carbon setup but Ive no idea what it needs or what would fit

Best cheap tuning for 1360 tu is a good cam and exhaust manifold, you can use a saxo vtr cam pulley as they are about 1/3 of the weight, I always saw gains from the 1.1s straight through / single box exhaust.

Sounds like these ppl know what they are on about and something you can prob do yourself?

I think it has a straight through exhaust. At least it only has a rear box fitted
