-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!
Citroen C2 VTS – EP6 conversion + Peugeot 207GT turbo kit + Opel Corsa OPC injectors. #Etuners custom remap ondyno on Bosch MEV17.4: 200hp at 0.4bar. Thank you Santa!

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.

Upgrade specifications

  • 98RON fuel
  • Stock EP6 engine (1.6i 120hp)
  • EP6-DT turbocharger, run on a 0.4bar wastegate (Peugeot 207 1.6 THP150)
  • Opel Corsa OPC injectors
  • Stock Bosch MEV17.4 and wiring (from the EP6 engine)
  • Intercooler and piping from EP6-DT
  • Custom exhaust


Performance results

  • Maximum engine power: 195hp at 0.4bar of boost
  • Maximum engine torque: 295Nm at 0.4bar of boost
