That's amazing : Tata Estate = Tata Sierra.
How come I didnt know that before ... I am so stupid
Anyway, some info to clear things up : Tata Estate wheelbase --> 2825mm and Tata Sierra wheelbase --> 2400mm
One is a car (albeit a station-wagon), another an SUV.
Hey, jeevan, try to see if you can get the 3.0L DI turbo engine. This may be better than the IDI turbo, even though the power is less (the low-end torque will more than compensate).
Or, if you would like to really enjoy the (high-speed) highway rides, maybe you should consider more powerful DI Turbo engines from Toyota. The NVH levels will be much better as well.

Actually, I can take a lot of pictures of the car now but it is raining
cat and dogs outside . Changed the upholstery to a more suitable grey
colour and planning to do more bit by bit . If I turbo this car then the
engine would probably overheat . This is certainly a guess . I don't wish to go for an engine transplant for the time being but engineer the same engine to my liking . What could be the material the radiator is made up of for this car ? It looks to me like some very heavy material and not aluminium . Maybe I am wrong . The overheating started only after I fixed the AC condensor . The AC condensor actually blocks out the radiator very much .

There is a solution. The condenser and its fan should be shifted to a lower level than the radiator. I've seen this setup in a sumo .But, never had it done to mine since a proper radiator fan shroud helped lower the overheating and these days,it rarely touches 90degrees.

Re: Old Tata Estate .. ideas for mod ?
Old thread but I need suggestions
I had bought an engine a 3 liter petrol six cylinder inline, mercedes with auto tranny and running gear. Attached below.
My initial idea was to plonk it on W123 but I sold it. Later I planned to put it on a contessa or Tata Estate.
Both have been very hard to find but now I have found an Estate with good body condition.
What do you guys think?
