I have no technical info on these two gearbox or the difference, but purely based on the comments from other memebers on the forum it looks like the old TA65 Gearbox is not meant to handle such more than 140 nm.
If this is really the case, it would be very risky to play around (upstage / retune) the petrol to increase power / torque. Generally its advised to check all components that are impacted during modding can handle the increased load.

Well these are just my thoughts and I am no expert in tuning at all.

Well limiting the available torque may actually be to ensure good fuel economy and keeping performance at par or below the petrol Nexon that may be higher priced. Hence the choice of the old TA65 unit. Maybe it just serves the purpose at a lower cost.

Scoop! Tata Altroz turbo petrol briefly appears on website

The Tata Altroz turbo petrol made a brief appearance on Tata Motors' official website before it was taken down.

Images of the Altroz turbo petrol had appeared under the features and downloads section of the website. The car looks similar to the standard Altroz except for that 'iturbo' badge on the black rear fascia. The smoked tail lamps and alloy wheels are similar to the non-turbo version as well.

According to a leaked document, the Altroz will be offered with a 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine that produces 108 BHP @ 5,500 rpm and 140 Nm @ 1,500-5,500 rpm. It is expected to be paired to a 5-speed manual transmission. It could also get a dual-clutch automatic transmission.

At present, the Altroz comes with a naturally aspirated 1.2-litre petrol engine that makes 85 BHP @ 6,000 rpm and 113 Nm @ 3,300 rpm and a 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder turbocharged diesel unit that puts out 89 BHP @ 4,000 rpm and 200 Nm @ 1,250-3,000 rpm. Both engines come paired with a 5-speed manual transmission.

Thanks to Logic Answer for sending these images in. Heartfelt gratitude for sharing them with other enthusiasts via this Team-BHP page!

If this is believed to be the final look of Altroz Turbo-Petrol, what has prompted TATA Motors to move the "turbo" or "i-turbo" badging from the initial position(as shown on the blue car in the original news of this thread) to the black rear fascia? We have seen other spy-pics of Gold color Altroz turbo also having the turbo badge under the black rear fascia and just above the bumper.

Off course we will actually have to see the car in the flesh, out on the road to know which one looks better. Either way, this is a strong indication that Tata might launch soon, possibly during the festive season or before end of the year.

Great catch, by the way.

Rather than launching during the festive season, they should launch it as soon as possible and start the deliveries by festive season.

Wow, a hot turbo hatch with MT\AT option!

If priced under 10L lot of folks who wanted a good, safe and feature full car would get one.

If a family needs a secondary fun, fast and good AT hatchback for city drive also gets one.

If someone wants a fast turbo MT would also get one.

They're doing similar to what Kia did to Seltos\Sonet segment. Giving the customers the liberty to choose what they want instead of letting them pick with the limited options.

Sorry for the OT but the bootlid is closed right, then why is there a bulge on the left side where the boot lid meets the bumper? Hope it’s not a quality issue.

The car is a looker no doubt but it’s these small things once seen can’t be ignored.

I found this in another thread, hope this helps.
The manufacturers website suggests the maximum torque to be 200nm. With this information, I wouldn't be willing remap for extra torque.

The bootlid seems to be in its correct position. If you look closely it is the upper surface of the bumper that is deformed by what looks like an impact.

I have seen a lot of test mules that have a whole bunch of wires going from the outside to the cabin. Such wires are routed through the windows, bootlid or even sunroofs. This case could also be similiar in nature where there were some wires routed through and the panel was purposely bent to aid the same.

Apart from this, it is also possible that this car was fitted with a jig to measure real-time emissions. Even in those cases there are wires and pipes routed to the cabin.

I don't think it is a manufacturing defect because such a visually obvious panel mis-match would not clear any QC in today's time. Even lines of the tail-lights don't match.

Is there any update on this car?

Diwali's not too far away and Tata Motor's has been awfully silent on it. Seems like the usual from them; extremely well dressed but fashionably late to the party.

Price reveal is expected this month, as per their article.
So launch may not be too far off.
