Default XD3P or DI Turbo Engine upgrade for MM540

I was all set to install the XD3P engine in my MM540 but now I just found that a DI Turbo Engine is up for sale?

What do you all think? Slow reving lower bhp/higher Torque engine (DI Turbo) or High Reving higher bhp/lower torque engine?

Has anyone driven the DI Turbo engine? How is the pick up?

DI Turbo => 68 bhp Peak Torque 18 Kgm @ 1800 rpm
XD3P => 75 bhp Peak Torque 15.5 Kgm @ 2000 rpm

Isn't this the "DI turbo" version of the NA XD3P?

I don't think so. Its the DI Turbo version of the old international engine.

Oh!
That international engine is a torquey tractor engine,i've heard.Never driven one.
Im very well familiar with the XD3P from Arka's jeep and I'd say its a lot smoother than the peugeot engine.And the one you've found is a super smooth XD3P.

I have driven the DI and the old XD3P in a bolero, there is a difference , the XD3P is quit good compared to the DI, I did find that the low end grunt is better in the DI, but thats about it[ not much of a difference ]. But I am a big fan of XD3P engine, as I had the 2 liter engined Jeep Myself... If you like low reving engines, and you are not going to travel on highways much than DI is the way to go[ it's the rev band thats the problem]. Also the XD3p is good even off road, smoother than the DI, quiter, and more BHP when you need it.

i am a bit confused about the engines that are found in the mahindra jeeps. can some body put details of jeep models with their engines specs in chronological order , in a separate thread.I have found these details here and there in several threads but not together.

I'd recommend you to go through with the XD3P install. Its way more revvhappy (well, as much as a Mahindra can be) compared to the DI Turbo. Friendlier on the highway too and has a wider revv band. The DI Turbo only has forced induction to meet emission norms. Plus, when you are getting more power + simpler ownership with a non-turbo, why bother with the turbo alternative at all?

What is the weight of the two engines? Isn't DI Turbo the heavier as well?

Mr. Behram has given the chronological order of the International derived Engine which is the forefather of the current DI Turbo Engine.

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/4x4-te...eed-jeeps.html (Hi-speed and Low-speed jeeps?)

I finally went with the Turbo DI engine and am happy with my decision. I do a lot of driving in the hills and the Turbo comes in handy. The torque is good. However, in the highways it runs out of steam after about 100 kmph as the engine doesn't not rev beyond about 3300 rpm.
