[Car_Overhaul] My Reshell Project

Right, the wiring you need to connect to on the 205 loom side of things is as follows (cut and paste from one of the threads):
For those of you with Phase 2 GTi's with remote central locking as standard, I'll save you the hassle of working out the wiring - it's a negative pulse based system, and you need to connect the LOCK wire from the alarm (grey) to pin 8 of the underdash locking relay (on the side of the steering column), and the UNLOCK (blue) to pin 6.
As for the other wires you'll likely need from the 205 loom to splice/cut - the wire numbers are correct, and the colours were as they were on my car (but might be different on yours as Peugeot were a bit inconsistant with the colours):
Wire #1 (Red) - Constant +12v
Wire #2 (Red) - Ignition
Wire #46 (White) - Starter
Wire #48 (Grey) - Left Indicator
Wire #49 (White) - Right Indicator
Wire #76 (White) - Fuel pump
For the alarm side of things, the wires are as follows (another cut and paste):
OK, heres a list of the wires that you'll need - the others can be bound up out of the way:
Black cable with Red Tag - Permanent 12v
Brown/Green cable - Indicator 12v power feed
2 x Black cable with Green Tag - Ground
Black cable with Orange Tag - Ignition
Green cable - Negative door switch
2 x Black cable with White Tag - Immobilisation circuit 1
2 x Black cable with Blue Tag - Immobilisation circuit 2
Black/Green + Black/White cables - Indicator output
Grey cable (on siren loom) - Bonnet switch
Grey/white cable - Boot switch
Red/Black + Red/Yellow cables - Ground for central locking
Blue/Red - Unlock
Grey/Red - Lock
Hope that helps,

After the reshell, well in fact after the engine was originally rebuilt by Miles back in 2004 we were always aware that it needed 'mapping' to make use of the slightly wilder cams....it has only taken me 5 years to do this!
With the cold weather setting in and the fact that I don't have the time to tinker on the car at the moment and after a quick chat with Miles it seemed the best idea was to take it back down to his workshop for some more work.
Car now back from Miles where 'she's' received the following work:
3-row loom, AFM, Mi16 inlet manifold, ECU, dizzy cap, ignition amp etc etc.
New loom and importantly new plugs etc
GTI-6 inlet manifold
Work is exemplary as usual.
Car was then trailered to a garage local to Miles who then carried out the mapping.
Well, I must say the power delivery is very pleasant and the car feels a lot more 'powerful'. My trip back home along the Autobahn last night was keeping me very amused especially now the way the torque is delivered in a very linear fashion. 3.5k onwards is even more amazing than it used to be, overtaking is no problem.
I'm sure I'll be back for some TB's at some point.....probably best to get my wedding out of the way.

We got 171bhp & 140lb ft torque which is good, the unit pulls in a much more linear fashion and the power is instantaneous. It's much more responsive over 3krpm and overall I'm very happy with the performance. I've had power readings prior to this work over the last few years on a selection of rolling roads with 174 being recorded so returning to those particular rollers I would expect to see 180bhp.
The rollers we used for this are known to read under and this has been confirmed by other standard cars running on there. Also the mapping is not yet finished including cold start and idle.
Anyway it's off to Dave Walker in the New Year to work his magic on the finer points.

Dunno if you have, but you may gain something by removing the resonance chamber from the '6 inlet if you haven't already done so, and before the mapping at Dave's I mean.
Keep us posted and best of luck. I'll be at Emerald a few times next year; that's my resolution.

Map 1 - MOT map, idle leaned off to avoid excessive HC's. Also with revs limited to 3000rpm to avoid mechanic thrashing it around the block
Map 2 - Leaned off at higher revs for thrifty motorway cruising
Map 3 - Sport mode!

Back from Emerald, not a bad day was had.
Mapping finished and we got 185bhp with 145Ibft of torque not bad really although we all know rollers aren't accurate.
Still a few concerns with the idle and general driveability what with it having cams and a plenum.
Probably going to go for some throttle bodies soon, that will apparently solve the problem!

not a bad curve at all which cams?
Looks a typical MI16 wave in the torque curve, looks to peak a tad high though, due to the cams more than likely I'd imagine, mine peaks at 4k and gradually trails down from 183Nm to 160Nm at peak Power.
2x reprofiled Kent cams 262, they were a surprise find when I bought the engine back in 2004.
