Default hi guys..

hallo people,
i'm achaiah from coorg. currently doing my mechanical engineering in mysore.
interestingly i'm a big fan of cycling but before you decide that i dont belong here, just so that u know i love anything with engines on them.
we have a 10 yr old 800 and recently with one of my friends, we did up a mahindra MM540(87'). got a simpsons s4 engine fitted onto her, and now i'm practically in love with jeeps.
i heard about this forum from a friend(the same guy who was a big help with the jeep). got still lots more to learn and from what i see on this forum, thats not going to be a problem.
anyway i'm looking forward to being a part of this community

thanks,
achaiah"croonneck"

Welcome to a fellow Jeep lover. Where did you source the S4 engine? How was the match? Would love to see detailed pictures.

Do also visit the board rules section to get familiar with our forum protocol.

thanks for the warm welcome. I realised you were a jeep lover (GTO)when i saw your profile picture.
anyway about the simpsons engine, since there are a lot of mahindra mini vans(model- fj460) my garage guy suggested that would be a good choice because it was a cheap DI engine(no heating required,and it starts with almost nice effort).we got the engine in the mysore gujri for 17k and i got 5k for the original XDP engine. it fits perfectly onto the mahindra gearbox, but the crown pinion ratio had to be changed. the original was a 44/9(or 47) we needed to get a 11/47 which is what the mini van uses. the engine is not really fast(tops at around 80)but we normally load up our jeep to maximum capacity, hence this engine..
