My suggestion is to chill out till 20K. Summer in the North is pretty harsh. Thus the engine would have settled down well, and you'll also feel the difference of before & after..

The impact on an mHawk engine is 20 BHP and 50 Nm increase.

A trip down south should fix that.

What i meant was IIRC they have Stage 1, 2 etc maps for the box right? Just wondering which one your box is running.

Thank you for all your inputs. My apologies for not having responded to all your queries. Please find as under:

My intercooler was clogged with oil after I used fully synthetic. now running on Delvac MX which is changed every 5k. Did I imagine it? I must say-engine felt much smoother and less noisier with fully synthetic.
I have been using the same grade of fully synthetic oil even in my old non CRDE Scorpio without issues. I would recomend checking your inter cooler again. I doubt shifting to a thicker oil will sort the problem.

Yup pictures coming up by the weekend. The jeep has 30,000 km on the clock, still runs like new, since I shifted over to non Mahindra oil after the jeep had run 1000 (One thousand only) km.

At the authorised Mahindra workshop. I don't know how using a better oil voids the warranty of a vehicle. This is a game the vehicle manufacturers play with the customers. It's high time we fought for our rights.

However, I'm not too sure on how the OWS will run in a diesel environment. Sideways, please enlighten more in this regard.
Well, I have used OWS fully synthetic oil in my older Scorpio. I did a total of 3 rallies in that jeep. The first one was the Airtel One India rally, held in the peak of Summer and ran through Rajasthan. The rally started from Madras and ended in Delhi. Total distance run was approx 2800 Km. We findished 9th among 200 participants form all over India.

The other two rallies were the Himalayan. Nothing much has to be said with respect to the conditions on this rally. It is by far the most unforgiving event I have come across. In the first raid,due to time constraints we could not truck the jeep to Delhi and therefore drove the vehicle again from Madras to Delhi and took part in the rally. We came first in the year 2006 event.

These oils are also used by all the race vehicles which take part in the national championship (track). The oil has also been extensively used for drag racing. The fastest quater mile timing in India was set in a car using this oil and the record stood for 3 or 4 years until it was broken last year. Not because of a better oil, but because of better hardware.

There are quite a few reputed tuners also using the oils. I am not sure if forum rules will allow me to disclose their names, but if necessary I can PM details.

Therefore I am supremely confident that the oil does what it promises to do - It's that simple.

But, we also have a completely opposite recommendation on here .

To each his own. We were able to solve - completely eliminate a whine coming from the oil pump just by changing over to a better oil from the approved oil that was being used. The dealers were until then changing oil pumps, even after which the whine still existed, although lesser than before. Need I say more?

I am assuming it's running the default map (Stage 1), I should clarify with Pete though.

About the brakes, as Ishaan has suggested, probably move onto wider tyres, lets see.

Good point but having tasted blood, it's hard to hold back!

I just had a chat with Peter. The jeep is now running on the Stage 1 map and still has another 2 more loaded . However I plan on running the default map until I am able to find a solution with regards to the brakes. Don't want to take any unnecessary risks.

Pictures will be up by this weekend.

Excellent stuff and very nice review. I know when I get a diesel where to look for performance. Nice garage you got there by the way.

Those would surely need a better air intake. A CAI or so.

Nice review of yet another satisfied Pete's box owner. I have one since the last ~10k or so and absolutely loving the difference it made to the engine, driving pleasure without effecting the FE in any way.

Enjoy the beast which now needs double towed chains to stop!

nice review. once your used to it move onto the 2nd stage. itll add another 7 odd bhp. but you should get an intake upgrade before doing that. ive had petes on my innova for 30k kms + without any problems.
