Actually the 300Tdi is a lot closer to the V8 then you think. The one I have in the 110 is probably making close to 150hp as compared to the 68hp the 2.5NA made when it was factory fresh. I'm guessing most of those engines are closer to 50hp by the time you drive them.

Sheki's 2.8PS with the VVT drove almost exactly like the 4.0 GEMS on the highway.
