Email from Cummins:
" I was told you have a datalogger on your Defender as part of the BETA program. I was wondering if you would like the new calibration loaded to your Defender? It has some OFC updates for emissions, the MAF auto correct update, as well as a peak torque increase to 310 ft-lbs. Cummins will be releasing this new cal out to everyone in Sept. "

For those who arent understanding my enthusiasm for these engines in defenders, torque is the important "seat of the pants" performance number, forget the HP rating

For instance, the Gem's injection rover 4.6 V.8 (the 4.6 that didn't suck) was rated @ 220 hp but only made 280 ft lbs or torque.

The Cummins makes considerably more power & achieves it @ 2++ times the fuel economy of the fuel injected V8.

The legendary 2000-2003 Ford Powerstroke 7.3 liter engine (2 and a half times the displacement) made 500 ft lbs of torque in stock tune.
