Given that the HP rating of the R2.8L is only 161HP, I don't think that it is going to be breaking traction very often...How long does it take to make enogh power to break traction on dry asphalt from idle? Does the diesel have enough power before the turbo spools up, or is it similar to the gas turbo? Anyone know what the torque curve looks like without boost?
The Cummins would be like a hyper-torquey version of the TJ's I6 but would feature a nearly 30mpg fuel economy and be likely more reliable. Basically a workhorse.
