Default Xtreme Power does a Scorpio Powered MM550

With the great escape's just around the corner, we decided to built ourselves a new 550, rather stock looking from out. But loads of goodies all hidden.
Heres the expected list of mods:
* Stock 550 body
* 2.6L scorpio engine
* AC
* power steering
* alloys and 31" mudterrain tyres
* Composite leaf springs in the rear(they come in hard n soft versions)
* Shackle lift
* Winch
* Snorkel
* Roo lites
* Floating Seats
* high lift Jack and Bridging ladders as Accesories
* Rock Sliders
* Steering Guard
* Tank Guard
* Rear Diff locks
* Paint Job

i have picked up a 2.6 scorpio engine with a 2wd gear box quite a while ago and now need to mate it to get a 4x4 or buy a complete 4x4 gearbox, need help for this
anyone knowing of a gearbox for sale please pm me
Shall update this thread
work officially starts from tomorrow

Dear Allan - so now you also endorse what is the best driveline in an MM540 (just kidding). . This should be fun. Best of luck. Want to visit your place sometime next week. I'll call you.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

Hi Allan,

Hunt for a NGT530 4WD gearbox, you can mate it with the T18 transfercase if I am not wrong,

Refer to this thread for more gyaan.

Allan, all the best for your new project. Don't worry about the gearbox, all you need to source is a T-18 transfer case, which is a direct bolt on NGT530/520 gearbox which you have now. Refer this thread for more details http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/4x4-te...ect-shift.html (Need advice:MM 550 BA 10 : 4x4 gear box direct Shift.)

Sabareesh, even 2WD gear box will do, He may have to reduce the length of shaft which goes in the T-18.

Thanks

Oh, looks like we have a home made Thar killer

On a serious note, cant wait to see the completed product. Do you have good mechs in mumbai when it comes to these things? Ive heard a lot from only up north so far...

Allan, what are floating seats, one with springs like in a chopper?

Doesnt the 2.6L Scorpio engine come with an inbuilt ECM.?

Are you going to use an ECM.

The big list above indicates arrival of a big time off-roading machine soon.

Best of luck with your project, But without pics this thread is useless.

Hi Allan

This should be an interesting project. Please dont let the thread die. We need constant feedback from you as to what's going on!

What lockers are you planning to use?

Cheers
