Both Peugeot and CitroŽn still use the Prince-based 1.6T engine in their cars though. And, as far as I know, it's working OK.
Not sure what the deal was with the R56 in the Mini, but Peugeot has gone as far as 270hp with that engine in the 308 GTI and RCZ.
In fact, that 1.6L turbo engine is the ONLY higher powered gas engine in the entire Groupe PSA; there's nothing else except the smaller 1.2T 3-pot engine.
