My Peugeot 406 V6 Conversion Project To Performance Brakes by Ikenna351(m): 7:37pm On Jul 09, 2020
*SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF MY D9 V6 STICK-SHIFT CONVERSION PROJECT TO PERFORMANCE BRAKING SYSTEM.*

I started this project on 04/01/2020 and successfully concluded it today, 09/07/2020. I sourced the parts/components used in this conversion from UK and here in Nigeria. The lion had a good braking system from factory but didn't match my driving style (aggressive driving). This conversion has made the braking system a match not only to my driving style, but to power the engine possesses when geared aggressively with the Stick-Shift box.

Even with the pandemic that started early in the year 2020 and still going on, giving some people opportunity to eat & knock themselves out on negativity, both online & offline, I remained focus on my personal
positive projects I had going on which were within my power and control over on to do and have now successfully concluded 2, remaining 1. Every moment I find myself breathing is always an indication to me that I still have unfinished an business or businesses to experience in this physical life.

I am becoming madly in love with my Lions & Monk life.

Ikenna351, Lion King - Monk.

One thing you can't take away from Ikenna is his passion for the lion brand.
You are doing well.

Waste of performance brakes. This car would hardly hit 210kmph. Save it for a car that actually needs it

lol, it's a 3.0L V6 engine.... if ikenna revs that engine well, he will hit that speed at the end of the 4th gear. I've seen it on YouTube.

Cars that need performance brakes exceed 210kmph without "revving their engines well".

Your keke will have better braking distance.... upgrading to performance brakes is not a bad idea.

Bigger rotors or whatever do not affect braking distance at all.

Your tyres are what matter for braking distance. And, of course, the car's mass.

All performance brakes will do is ensure that the brake doesn't fade easily under usage--which is mostly relevant for cars that are tracked. But for making sure you brake effectively, there's no influence at all.

Waste of money. Not my money, though, so who cares? grin

Just imagine. Someone used his money to buy keke, then used his own money again to buy performance breaks and put on the keke and one mumu somewhere is not happy about that.

I think you should ask BamK why someone should rejoice over waste of money

Boss, if you do not subscribe to his school of thought, rather than shoot him, why not turn a blind eye to it?

Some days ago, I was busy under the bonnet doing some maintenance repairs in this my Lion and a man walked towards me and started saying to me how sweet and fun driving Peugeot 406 can be and ended it saying they are killed by high cost of maintenance because of their unreliability and their parts keep breaking down all the time . I raised my face, opened my mouth to speak but no sound came out. I held it open for some seconds, shut it and faced back what I was doing under the bonnet. He went on again with his blabbing on the "unreliability and high cost of maintaining a 406" while I kept my face down under the bonnet without uttering a word. It was obvious he wanted me to argue with him, defend, disagree or agree with his claims. He suddenly shut it and walked away when he became uncomfortable at my silence, I supposed.

I finished what I was doing, cranked and the Lion came alive, roaring (I love the throaty loud exhaust note on mine). Took the car for a spirited drive and minutes into it, my 32 were all out. Got back home, wanted to switch off engine and changed my mind. Left the engine running, opened the door, stood by the door with my right foot on Accelerator pedal. Pressed the pedal down till rpm hit close to 7,000 and left it there, while I watched the tail of the car. No smoke of any color was seen from the car tail, as the 20 years old Engine continue to sing in it's melodious high tone.

The over 200,000 km 20 years old car with:

- Same Steering Rack.

- Same Steering Pump.

- Same front suspension wishbone.

- Same Head gaskets.

- Same Intake & Exhaust Valves.

- Same Cylinder heads.

- Same Camshafts.

- Same VTC Sprockets.

- Same Fuel Injectors.

- Same FPRs.

- Same VVT Solenoids.

- Same Cylinder Reference Sensors.

- Same CKP sensor.

- Same TPS

- Same Detonation Sensors.

- Same Pistons & Rings.

- Same Crankshaft.

- Same Conrods.

- Same Engine Bearings.

- Same Engine Oil Pump.

- Same Engine Block.

- Same Oil Pan.

- Same Complete Engine, running on lighter Synthetic Oil with no Oil consumption (infact).

- Same Wheel Hubs and Bearings.

- Same Clutches.

- Same Gearbox.

- Same Gearbox Cables.

- Same Shock Absorber Mountings.

- Same Rear Brake Discs & Calipers.

- Same Brake Master Cylinder.

- Same Brake Booster.

- Same Intake Manifolds.

- Same Exhaust Manifolds.

- Same Pre-Catalytic Converters.

- Etc .

He was right. Peugeot 406 are truly unreliable pieces of nightmares with high costs of maintenance because of constant failure of parts.

Flee for your life!
