This is pretty cool looks like a good competitor to the Volkswagen GTD.

Woww if it was a little cheaper I'd say buy it and turn that turbo up! I have a Civic hatch that is a 2L N/A and it has more power than this

David I think you have the horsepower confused with torque regarding a diesel engine. Usually significantly lower horsepower compared to the torque the the engine produces.

It is tuned down for racing specs. My civic Si packs 200hp and is a 2.0 natural 4. Diesel allow for more hp. A diesel 2.2 turbo 4 should have about 250-280 hp

What it doesn't tell you is the engine makes 258 lb ft of torque.

Yeah something isn't right or it's horribly detuned or inefficient, or both.

2.2L turbo and only packing 150hp?
