Is that what the Euro 3.2 is rated for or was it tuned? The stock US 3.2 is rated at 185 hp @ 3,000 rpm/350 lb-ft @ 1,500 rpm. Still pretty impressive torque. So this would be a pretty rad setup. But it looks like it would be a lot easier & cheaper to install one of the Mustang engines that would bolt up to the Defender MT82. The 2.3 Ecoboost is rated for 310 hp @ 5,500 rpm/ 320 lb-ft @ 3,000 rpm. Not bad for a lightweight 4.

EU spec 3.2 is very similar in output. Folks like Pete at BAS provide moderate tunes with big payoffs. Pete is good people, he went above/beyond for me a few times when I lived OCONUS.

In the UK when you pull up to a diesel pump you have a choice of different cetane ratings just like we have different octane ratings here. They are able to run some pretty aggressive tunes on diesels there.
