I have a korando with a diesel engine and I can bet you, that my car can beat any 1.8 tuning car.

I've got a Korando 2.9TD, originally 125hp. I modified the intake, exhaust, put on 2 electric superchargers for more power on lower revs, lift it only 1" and well the tires depend on where I'm going.
I have NOOO idea about the hp or torque line it has now, because of the mods I made, but it RUNNNNS guys. I mean it, all those V8 sand dune climbers with all their HP are nothing. This little beast has so much torque++, maybe hp not that high, but so much torque it's almost impossible to stop.
One of the best things is that it does outrun IN A STRAIGHT LINE most of those 1.8 tuning cars with their turbo and all that S*** hahaha.
LOVE the Korando... there's just no way of not loving it.
HAVE FUN EVERYBODY. KEEP OFFROADING.

My son just bought a 2000 automatic. We are in Cape Town and need advice. The front propshaft is not fitted. The previous owner says if fitted, it makes it slower. Also the car's engine does not run smooth, it runs uneven. Who knows this vehicle best in Cape Town?

I took the cone out of the air box and made up a 90mm inlet. Then put on a high flow muffler. This helped a lot with power - mine's a straight 3.2. I'm thinking that Ssangyong used the 2.3 air box for the 3.2 with the same inlet... error.
Economy is now 10L per 100 ks country, which is much improved.
P.s. Also I put in a K&N high flow air filter.
