Default Re: M&M Engine and Gearbox combos for JEEPs

Thank you all,
For your valuable comments, However Now my mind is completely jumbled up as, GTO San suggests a XD3P, Shubendra San suggests a DiTurbo and Dhanush San suggests a Scorpio Engine! So the rebuild plan will have to be redrawn.

GTO san!

The XD3P was the PLAN! However changing a engine with only 10 BHP of power increase and as you say they both sound and act similar so that option is really on the back burner right now. One XD3P vehicle I want that is the 2006 and later MM550, Hopefully one day I'll be brave enough to buy one.

All points noted, Shubhendra San!

I have a visit scheduled in Delhi in the next week, would appreciate if you can share the contact details of your contact in Mayapuri.

I have seen three totaled M&M Pickups in the last week itself, all with the MDI with Inline Mico pump, Had any one of them been a rotary pump would have picked up the same, But I have purchased one BA-10 from a Bolero GLX, The engine was sold before I can even visit the scrapyard.

So the hunt is on and most probably I'll have the requisites in the next two weeks. The engine and GB is not posing a big problem now when I'm visiting the scrap dealers once a day, The biggest challenge as of now is the TC and the front axle tube.

Dhanush San,

One query I have which Scorpio engine should I look for CRDe or MHawk, as these engines are on the heavier side, what about the front heavy vehicle and the solid axle fouling with the belly pan. Though I have contacted every Insurance surveyor in my area for a Total loss vehicle for parting out, hopefully I will have a quote by Monday!

The weight difference is around 125 kgs between XDP and Scorpio chain drive engine. You can compensate the same by adding long shock absorbers and one additional helper spring in front.
CRDe and MHawk engines are ECM controlled engines and you need to then get hold of wiring, sensors and ECM along with engine.

This is how chain drive engine looks like
Picture taken a week back when i was getting my engine rebuilt. My bolero is back on road two days back, will share my feedback once i complete 2000-3000 kms of road and offroad drive

I am running on same setup and generally engine comes with alternator, PS pump and AC compressor. You have to pay extra if you want to buy turbo and intercooler along with engine. It may vary but this is how it works in Bombay, Kurla.
