Carlsen in Germany has done things to the Citroen C5 V6, probably you could find some engine components from them.
The 406 Coupe is one of my favourite cars, with a shape comparable to the Modena, but let's say more civilised. I have pondered to go for one, but then for the 2.2 Hdi, which you can easily chip up to 170-175 BHP, with a massive amount of torque. I think the car is more like a long distance traveller than a twisty roads hot rod. Therefore the diesel might be the better choice, but as you already have the V6.

I found three links in Auto Motor und Sport under the Peugeot adds section, which would give you your TuV complicance

Thanks a lot , i will check these sites, to find anything suitable...
I chose the V6 because I am not really a diesel fan, the V6 also has a great sound, and has a respectable 0-60 time, which is quite funny when all your friends drive Bmw 320's he he

Doing more than 40000 km's on average every year, fuel economy becomes an issue, and the Hdi would give about half the V6 costs

Yes but also half the fun
I drive about 20 k a year, so yes fuel consumption is an issue, but I would rather eat bread and water, than save on my fuel budget...

just love driving...
