Thanks Srinivas. Basically my jeep is supposed to satisfy the second car requirement hence the efforts.

Now that is pretty much possible. If you go through the top-speeds of the jeeps bhpians have mentioned in another thread, cruising in the range of 70-80 is quite common.

Agree 100% with that. I had a short drive of one 540 and one 550 (not XDB) and the noise & vibrations are bound to make the drive way too fatigued. May be it felt more after getting used to the petrol jeep but a more or less properly tuned petrol jeep is way too better in these factors. My 440 makes almost same vibration or less than the Alto in neutral!! As per improvements are concerned, i have seen this blue petrol monster performing way better than most of the jeeps:

It had Original magnaflow exhaust (direction changed later than what you see here), K&N rally filter, original APC seats, a proper roll cage and all these were done way back around four years ago. Though its performance was even increased due to the driving skill of the person who built it! At least for me, the petrol heart, all synchro 5-speed gearbox, comfortable seat with seat belts, roll cage, good quality top have really enhanced the comfort and safety level in jeep standard. If i can be capable of any help in any concerned things you can always let me know.

Hi All,

I think my dreams are not very far, in one of the tread I came to know that the new THAR has got the same thing what I was planning for.

So it will be same suspension ,chassis and the Heart ( Scorpio Motor CRDE) this is exactly what was planned by 14000rpm.
Thanks Kandisa for your input
