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

That really looks interesting! Does this engine is a direct fit the exisiting mount or done any modification for the chassis to support and accommodate this engine?

Also what about the Engine Sound compared to the stock XD3P one's?

The gearbox is stock mm550 4wd, i dont know about the clutch. The gearbox is holding on good to the added power the gear ratios seemed to match well and the gear shifting is like a hot knife through butter.

This Infinity should go straight to the weird and wacky mod thread IMO.

@ arjun: I see you're getting excited about the 2nd gear, 3rd gear wheelspins.
Let me remind you that Jeeps were built with 60kph top speed in mind.
With a Body on frame, high GC, zero safety features, etc, I would strongly suggest you just "cruise".
Please DO NOT get into speed-demon mode with a jeep.
