3.2 tdci

We are so behind the times... Looks like owners are taking the 2.4 and 2.2 out of their Defenders and dropping in the 3.2 TDCI 5 cylinder engines. I guess its way smoother and has 200hp/350 lbft!

Sounds like the perfect engine for the road.

Have to add the new 6 speed with it. I don't think an R380 can handle that. My 2.8 is just under the wire on max power for the 380.

That 3.2 diesel is coming in the Transit here.

Bears watching for developments.

3.2 is a big motor, I would much prefer them to use the 170hp version of the 2.0TDI from VW.

Unfortunatly like everything else on the market here it will likely be automatic only, which is just useless.

R380 wont handle it and its a paint to mat up I read. The new Puma 2.4 Gearbox even is maxed out to take it. I think some guys are taking the 3.2 gearbox and using that instead.

2.4 gearbox is rated right at the max of the torque specs I guess.

I wouldn't mine finding one here state side and bringing in a puma bulkhead to fit it.

Dave and Ian Ashcroft will come with a solution.

I have high hopes for the 2014 model years. With the European emission requirements going to the next level it brings them up to just about Cali specs. So we might actually have a one world, one engine. We will find out next fall I suppose....

What's useless about an autobox?

Less control, worse fuel economy, worse for towing, not as durable, and just less fun to drive.

Ok, I've been wasting my time playing do they have a six speed stick shift behind this 3.2 diesel.
Answer YES. tracked it down in the Ford Ranger sold in Oz and elsewhere (but not here)
Next question: Which gearbox? That one took a bit of digging but just by following the gear ratios,
1 st ...5.44
2 nd ...2.84
3 rd ...1.72
4 th ...1.22
5 th ...1.00
6 th ...0.79
Reverse 4.94
I deduce that the gearbox is a MT-82
Which has been used in Defender 2.4 and now 2.2 liter diesels.
Probably a helluva lot easier to use one of those engines than the 3.2.
