-Dear Santa. This year, I would like you to get me a modern, high-tech 1.6liter engine for my Citroen C2 VTS. From a good and reliable manufacturer, perhaps like BMW.-Santa: Done.
– With a cylinder head that flows really really well.
-Santa: Done, too.
– With variable cam timing on both cams.
-Santa: Very easy. Added to the list.
-Can it also have a valvetronic system? For variable valve lift like all those amazing BMW engines.
-Santa: Not a problem at all, I got you covered.
– Can I get bigger injectors? So that they are enough for my new setup. From another car maker that belongs to group PSA, preferably.
– Santa: Why not, lets throw in the injectors too. Opel it is.
– For my final wish, I would like to have a turbo kit that bolts onto the engine directly. Big enough to make 200hp on a stock engine.
– Santa: Sorry but now you have lost it completely. It would have been much easier if you had asked for your you know what to become 30cms.
Meanwhile in Russia: Hold my vodka!

There is no easy way to explain what happened here. But we will try.
Take a Citroen C2 VTS. Replace the engine with the EP6 1.6i 120hp unit from a Peugeot 207. Then add a turbo kit from a Peugeot 207 1.6THP150 and fuel injectors from an Opel Corsa OPC. Then convince the engine control unit that this thing needs to run properly and make good power.
