    ok yan... the 1KZ-TE is an older-tech engine that uses prechamber injection; it should be more quiet and smoother than the direct injection ones at the expense of peak power and torque

    upside is that it's not as sensitive as the new-tech engines and is easier to repair and maintain

    Thanks... Gusto ko kasi ma-test drive yun diesel pero wala raw available.

    Yun Gas kasi I have tried na pero no warranty siya due to being bought on the graymarket.

    Is the diesel engine silent?

    Sir Kiper, malakas ba sa acceleration?

    Chamber-type diesel engines are more silent than comparable direct injection models.

    Ok naman ang 3.0 Prado. I think it makes 125 bhp. A Trooper makes 160 bhp and the new Pajero pumps out 177. Test drive one first to feel if it lacks the power you want.

    I think prado is 136HP. Lakas pala ng pajero? Pero due to the many issues ng mitsubishi lately and yun shaky management ng mitsu japan, nakakatakot baka magsara kasi.

    Wow, lakas pala ng patrol? Mas mabilis pa sa escape? is it 2.0? I'm impressed.

    Kasi with our gen 2.5 medyo nababagalan ako sa both acceleration and top speed.

    TY
