I guess the only difference should be that they have a different Setting in the ECU ... but the service teams don´t have any other answer in lack of having a 170 HP engine in hands to check over here in Germany ... Transmission and clutches are different to but that´s obvious different between 6 speed manual and automatic versions ...Given that the more powerful diesel will only be available with an automatic, does anybody know what Jeep does to bump the 2.0L diesel from 140hp to 170hp?
I realize doing this on your own might invalidate the warranty but wonder if maybe Jeep might offer it as a dealer upgrade thus allowing the warranty to remain intact.
This could be a great upgrade for those of us with the 6 speed manual. Anybody from the European side of this forum have any opinions or insight?
