I'm looking for 208 gear ratios and final drive ratio, particularly for the Allure Sport (THP 156) and GTi (THP 200). None of the spec sheets I've found have this detail. Can anyone steer me to it ? Thanks, Spec.

What an excellent source! I had been asking about gear ratios for the 1.2 in another post so I have the answer to my question now.

The gear ratios indicated in the above website (http://www.cars-data.com/en/peugeot-208-gti-1.6-thp-200hp-specs/58886) is incorrect.

The corrected gear ratios for 208 GTI 200hp 2013 - 2015are as follow:

Well done notyet. I believe the website posted rcz ratio which is very similar to Euro 6 as final drive was changed to avoid the dreaded ko3 [email protected] The Euro 5's needed a slight down hill to achieve the 142mph top speed which because of reviews they changed for 30th edition which then went into the euro 6 models (and PS). As people have asked before the Euro 6 models also gained a more capable clutch than the Euro 5.

For Euro 5 208 GTI owners - calculated on stock 205/45 R17 tyre @6300rpm

DearComkotes,

you are welcome.

In order to get a more
accurate result while calculating rpm vs speed, it would be better to use
dynamic rolling radius of a tyre. Dynamic radius of the 205/45 R17 tyre is
around 23,54 in.

According to my theoretical calculation with respect to speed vs thrust force (under the wheel), it would be better to change the gears at the following RPM's for the best acceleration:1st gear @ 6500 rpm2nd gear @ 6450 rpm3rd gear @ 6250 rpm4th gear @ 6250 rpm5th gear @ 6000 rpmAnd 208 GTI reaches its maximum speed at the top gear @ 5375 rpm.

All of the above calculations was made for a stock car. Below is the chart of my results.

Thats a great chart we need you on our team ;)

I can only get 165mph (GPS of 164.4) out my stage 3-4. Its gps as have 215/40 R18's on so speedo unreliable.It would do more as rev limiter is 6800 but would take a bigger turbo to push her into the 170's.

I basically change on the 3-4 at 65-68, 90-95, 110ish, 135-140, then into 6th. We have bags of power in 5th and 6th so dont have to bother too much when to change but can leave it in 5th until 145. Its easy to make cars quick but an art to make them handle it. You dont want twitchy,floating,lumpy car at 140+

(and you can kill a tuned car holding wot for the big speeds)

Dear Comkotes,For a stock 208 GTI there isn't any power left on the flat road after 138 mph (134 mph at GPS) @ 5th gear so I couldn't leave it until 145 mph.

Yeah, I know the stock pug struggles in 4th,5th and 6th.

We have max power @6450rpm but only the stage 3-4 made 6th still accelerate nicely. When it was stage 2 car would still struggle in 5th(not accelrating much), top out in 6th around 152-154, just had no power beyond that. No such troubles at stage 3-4 and can spare the engine short shifting.

I still had a v10 make me look slow other day but on a good note an r26r was no competition.

We really can only live with Rs3 power to weight. We say if It didnt cost 50K at the forecourt then were probably quicker.

Let see 280 hp vs the standard 200 hp (~146 mph top speed). Provided no aerodynamic modification then you should max out at (280/200) exp 0.3333 times 146 mph = 163 mph so GPS 164.4 mph reading sounds right
