Hi Harish ,

The carb engine can be made to perform better, but a rebuild alone will not bridge the 20 bhp deficit compared to the injected version. More power can be extracted from it though, by changing over to a hotter cam, good extractors, etc., but remember, it is an expensive proposition.

I don't think anybody here is against a carb engine.
Both engines share the same basic architecture and have almost the same engine life.
It's just that the injected engine is lot more drivable than the carb version, is more powerful and has better fuel consumption. Add to it the fact that the injected version is virtually trouble free in terms of tuning and it becomes a no brainer.

I would suggest that you try and test drive both versions before taking the plunge.

one has to drive a mpfi and carb gypsy to know the difference
initially i was to looking for a carb gypsy but when i drove a mpfi and after talking to some fellow bhpians i went in for mpfi

and what i have seen in the market is that minimum 2.50lac is needed to get a 2000 model king mpfi
and i think its better so get a civilian gypsy than a disposal

i don't think there is anything like civilian gypsy's are better than disposal or vice versa. a restored disposal would perform as good as a civilian one and almost at par with the cost depending upon the tuner.

Why not carb? Its obsolete, lesser power. reliable yes but so are MPFI, any mechanic can fix the carb one. however, the advantages of a MPFI are far more than that or a carb - responsive & powerful.

see if you can get a decent MPFI for about 1.2Lakhs, your restoration costs would be minimum. are you planning to keep it a hardtop or softtop?

Decent 94-95 Carb model costs 1.4-1.5Lakhs. Decent MPFI in 1.2 Lakhs is a dream.

i was referring to army disposals. considering the allotment to an army officer for a 2002 MPFI or any other Class V A Gypsy is around 40K. Getting friendly with the scrap dealer wont hurt and 1.2 seems a decent figure..

I had contacted CVD Delhi Cantt and since they don't deal with allotment of vehicles to Army Officers, Army HQ does that, you would need to contact the scrap dealer for the gypsy. Next stop Army HQ!!

All Gypsies came with a 4x4 system from the factory.
A 91 gypsy would be a 1.0 litre MG410.

For that price, it sounds like a sweet deal, but you have to check for body damages and rust, As gotzuk said all gypsis came with a factory fit 4x4, but you might have to check if this one is still a 4x4. this can be a nice project vehicle and you may install wider axel and an more powerful engine, the 1.6 baleno is little complicated, as you might have to modify a lot of things right from mounts to the oil sump. If you ar looking at a recreational vehicle which will only see the road once in a blue moon then dont look any further and pick this one. If you are looking for a ofroader, this this can be a nice platform to start working with. But if you are looking for a daily drive with all creature comforts then you have to forget this one. It cannot take the load of an AC to start with and yes you can install a power steering it this one too. I hope i have answered each question which you can think of, Please PM me if the details if you let this one go. I might be in delhi next month for a week.

Hola Dragonov,

That is not my Jeep. Its a friends jeep, he got it from Mayapuri. I know for sure the 4wd has not been retained. I sure will get the Engine specs in a day or two and post it here.

Thanks

I saw a Jeep this morning in Ahmedabad which looked like a Mayapuri jeep but was very very well done, It had a PB-47 number.. No crazy or junky stuff on it. I will try to get a pic of it sometime.

I saw a similar Jeep on last Friday @ Mosque Road, Bangalore bearing Haryana Reg No.

It had all the traits of being a Mayapuri product.
