Fighting over engines? What difference will it make now? In a simple way, Thar has a engine having nice spces w.r.t BHP & Torque. So that will be enough. Any how Mahindra has already decided not to use SFA in front. So this argument will lead to nowhere.. Lets just ask about what can we do with existing Thar.

If you have seen IFS Striker in person, you will see that it has more GC than Thar & even though it uses Sandgrips on IFS it has nice clearence with front fenders, that does not look possible with Thar though.

Just see below pic. So is M&M going to give us some options for increasing the lift?

@Milecruncher you have added another twist in the tale,the engine mentioned in the above link is some other animal which even i am not aware of (XDP3 with 2523cc). Incidentally MDI3200 is of a similar swept volume range, if you mean Storm was developed from MDI3200 then i can guarantee it is incorrect.

So in Lawyer lingo, I'm taking it as correct that the Storm engine was developed on the XD3P with 2498cc. Especially since you have not denied that. Correct me if I'm wrong.

@ Spike. Does M&M have ANY engine officially derived from the XD's. I was under the impression that M&M license from Peugot covered manufacturing only, and to Peugot's exact design. No modifications allowed. No such problems with the B275. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Spike, Are these so called NEF engines and technology are developed in house by M&M or is it sourced from a vendor(Engine manufacturer like FIAT, FORD etc)? I mean the basic engine block.

Arka, I was meaning the front suspension dept

Now, you know very well the effects of an independent suspension versus a leaf spring suspension and when we talk road & track performance, obviously one has the advantage over the other. So lets leave it there!

You have confused between engines. Bolero CRde engine is also M eagle and belongs to NE family

M&M has been denying Bolero CRde has anything to do with XD3p. 2498cc is the bone of contention
A lot of components are from the same parts bin, so the confusion.

I'm sure M&M have developed the engine with the help of an engine specialist with restrictions on what level one can tinker the parameters without affecting copyright violations.

AVL of Austria is one such Engine Tech Partner I'm not sure whether M&M have used them though!

Wasn't AVL involved in both the mHawk and the (Tata) 2.2 DICOR?

Yes. They were. Both 2.2s have been designed by them.

Saar, I'll rephrase my question: Is Bolero CRDe part of the NEF?

P.s: I'm not a lawyer but an engineer like you albeit much smaller

Would love to see the two blocks side by side!
But till such times, could we have the experts comments on the two. And some facts/ figures like dist. between bore centres, deck height etc. And also weights. (I believe one of the most important figures in the specs set out by M&M to AVL was weight, or rather its reduction.)

Bolero CRDe is from NEF family, infact one of the photos posted by me is of a VLX engine (see the compressor on the RHS), also the 2.2L Mhawk engine is not fully developed by AVL as suggested earlier, AVL was a partner along with M&M during this development. For those who think M&M doesn't have the competency to develop engines wait for some time, good news is just round the corner (0.9L CRDe is just one of them).

P.S. Neither I am a big engineer, i am a dilettante when compared to you guys over here. Saar, don't call me saar, i am of your age saar.. Mods sorry for using this slang.

So apart from the electricals/electronics, is there any major difference between the Storm, M-Eagle and the Thar engine?

No one over here has doubts over the engine development capacity of M&M
