Hey arjun,

Am surprised to see a TBHPian from chennai getting his MM all the way to bombay for restoration & for how much from army?

Arjun, as someone mentioned here it nice to know that you are doing your jeep miles away from your place. Allan is quite good at his job. I guess you might have drawn inspiration from his many works here.

I am not too kicked about your colur though. Wish both you guys luck. We need some picture.

Is this also is super fast mode?

hi all! This is my engine mounted to another jeep for testing purposes..

Allan later did some offroading with this engine.
He told me that it had loads and loads of torque and and was a monster off the road(Will post pictures of it soon).
He had also got it driven all the way from Nagpur(workshop) to Bombay and he said it was effortlessly doing speeds of over 120!
