Am getting the Toyota 14b engine for the jeep.
The Toyota 14B is a 3.6 ltr inline 4 eight valve OHV direct injection diesel engine.
Compression ratio is 18:1. Output is 98 hp (72 kW) at 3400 rpm with 177 ft-lbs (240 Nm) of torque at 1800 rpm(BEFORE TURBOCHARGING).

These figures would have definitely considerably gone up because it is now turbocharged.

Just got off the phone with Allan. Asked him abt how the jeep performed.he said it was simply phenomenal .he felt that the jeep had loads and loads of torque.He also told me that the power was really too much.
I also was told that wheelspin was recovered in 1st and 2nd gears!phew!
