I recently had a chance to grab some closeup pics of the intake ports on a BEW PD and an ATD PD aka PD100 engine side by side.Pelican18TQA4 said:Does the rest-of-world PD100 even have it??
A factory new ATD PD crate engine is on the left and my now dead due to timing belt failure BEW PD engine is on the right:
Notice there's no partitioning on the intake ports in the ATD! IIRC, the ATD engine is aka PD100 in Europe and is what the BEW engine was derived from for the USA. The ATD and BEW engines have the same stock HP and torque ratings. The two engine are supposedly identical and everything bolts right up in place of the other, except for the changes made to create the BEW from the ATD. My new ATD PD engine also now has a PD150 intake on it.
ATD PD head ports: #2 & #3 closeup
BEW PD head ports: #2 & #3 closeup
My BEW to ATD engine swap story is in this thread:
