Peugeot tuning guide, we take a look at the latest and greatest tuning mods for the 207 and report on the best trends and latest power tuning mods.
Available in standard form with power of upto 152bhp (depending on the year), so this goes to show the tuning potential of the 207. From this you can increase the power from anywhere between 167.2bhp to 258.4bhp which seems almost too good to be true but is possible if you have deep pockets.
To go over the 100bhp per 1000cc limit you would need to be running a pretty serious forced induction setup. If you head for a maximum power figure you need to expect a lot of unreliability. See this link for more details on Engine Tuning
The Car Tuning Guide suggest that if you have a lower powered version you should do an engine swap with a ‘152bhp 207 GTs’. The more powerful 207s respond exceptionally well to tuning mods. Top of your list for tuning mods will be a sports exhaust system, a fuel boost valve (for a snappy throttle response) and a good quality induction kit.
FASTROAD CAMS should be next up on your tuning list and will offer big power gains on the 207. Internal engine modifications that should be high up on your list would be polishing and porting the head.
The top 207 GT offers a base power level of 152 bhp. The car tuning guide would expect you to see power gains from 167.2 bhp to 258.4 bhp!
Peugeot put together a nice package but the turbo 207 owners have a real tuners dream. A remap and Intercooler will add a lot of power to the engine and in some cases you can double your power. The 207s come in various power levels right up to 152bhp. On a motorsport prepared 207 it is possible to achieve power figures of anywhere approaching 197.6bhp to 288.8bhp. But this sort of power requires some pretty heavy investment and a hell of a lot of engine work. Suspension upgrades are next on every 207 owners priority list. A drop of 35mm will work well on most cars, any lower and you will hit other problems.
We will be covering 207 modifications in more detail in the future so plase bookmark this site and check back for regular updates.
