lars said:This is from a South American site, regarding the Jeep Liberty: "The turbo-diesel is also new for Jeep, and marks the first time a Mercedes engine has been fitted into a Chrysler vehicle, the unit a thoroughly modern double overhead camshaft common rail four-cylinder that produces 105 kW at 4 000 r/min and a whacking 343 Nm of torque at 2 000 r/min. .
105 kW = 140.8073 hp
343 Nm = 252.9838 lb-ft

How does the weight of that motor compared to the V8 or I6 you had it in before? What are you using for front springs?crawlnjeep said:I put a chevy 6.2 L diesel into my CJ7 last year, and it is great! I made my own engine mounts and adapter plate to fit it to the T-19 I have in my Jeep. It was a tight fit, and it was kind of tough to fit dual batteries in as well. I need to do some tuning to the engine still since I got it from a farmer who had it sitting in a shed. I am also going to put a turbo on it from a chevy 6.5 once I get some money, and I am in the process of building a snorkel for it. I don't get as good of fuel economy as you would from a smaller diesel, but boy it sure doesn't stall too easy off-road!
