then what benefits will i get by replacing the sierra turbo engine with that of a scorpio?
The 2500kg you mentioned for the Scorpio is the GVW, not the kerb weight. GVW = full laden to spec'd load level.

if you have the scorpio engine in the sierra, you would have 115/1600kg = 71bhp per tonne. Atleast abt 68-69 bhp/tonne since the vehicle weight will be a little more after the engine transplant.

One point I'd like to make here is, for reasons of simplicity in doing the transplant [lesser modifications, and hence lesser cost & possible complications], you could check out the Tata TCIC engine [the one used in the Victa Turbo / non-Dicor Safari].
I have tried the TCIC and non-Turbo IDI engined vehicles, and find the TCIC to be pretty good.

Interesting - since you brought up the topic, I did some research because I'd always thought the Scorpio was a sub-2 tonne vehicle. Turns out the Scorpio's GVW is only about 150kg less than my EX 4X4 Dicor. 4X2s should be the same, in that case....

Your sierra will get a boost with the TCIC engine, which is basically your Sierra engine witha turbocharger.

Steeroid, your were right abt these being sub-2 tonne vehicles. I think there is a general mix-up between kerb weight and GVW [Gross Vehicle Weight]. GVW = kerb weight + max load.

so will it be possible to plonk the safari TCIC engine into the normal sierra engine? i mean will it be possible to transplant a turbo charged engine into a vehicle which is not initially built for that.
