VM motori high output version

Just surfing and reading and thought I would delve into the company that supplies the eco diesel engine for our jeeps, turns out they have a euro5 compliant high power version of the 3.0l eco diesel..

A 630 DOHC HP V6 engine with High Power - 2000 bar injection system - VM Motori

They also have the normal and then a USA version, not sure where that fits in to the scheme of things tho...

Seems the high output version is using a different turbo?

In the past, the US versions had slightly different fuel injection and emissions systems. This is to deal with our inferior Diesel quality and tighter emissions.

Re: VM motori high output version

I'm awaiting shipment of my ecodiesel and this is my first post on these forums. I've been involved with the VW TDI community for the past 10 years though and this is very common. EU companies always have higher output versions there compared to stateside and yes, diesel quality is much better there than here.

Usually though, you can source the parts from across the pond to bolt on, reflash the ECU, and enjoy some added torque and horsepower with relatively OEM type reliability.

Re: VM motori high output version

drive it first before doing anything. I've never felt CRD WK2 to be underpowered in daily use.

Funny, Europe imports their diesel largely from the US. It is regular diesel and not the low sulfer diesel we are mandated to use, if that's what you mean.
