Ford engines come from the HM plant near Indore. The defunct Daewoo plant has been bought by Mr Subbu (ex Hyundai boss) and they will manufacture engines for the global market.

Let's not even get into whose copied whose engines.

Only really indian engine is DTS-Si, which surely has been copied from elsewhere as well.

oh wait, how would you count the rajdoot?

Didnt Maruti also develop the WagonR engine themselves (in India), using the 3 cylinder 800 engine as a base?

How many 'indigenous cars' do we have to put these 'indigenous engines' into?

This is the version given by some auto mags. On a previous thread, MOD DCEite had shown how this argument is not right!

F10D came out internationally in the Alto in 1998 while WagonR came to India in 1999.

what i have heard they rebored the zen engine to accommodate m800 piston which made the engine into 1100 cc engine

this was a very common practice in rally gypsys in the early 90's

Nope. The F10D is a longer stroke motor than the Zen engine. Zen pistons are bigger than the f10D (or the maruti 800 f8b pistons). f10D engine's base is the f8b motor.

I beg to differ. If they would have copied it, they wouldn't try to patent it.
