Have you ever wanted to drive a sexy diesel E30 in real life but just can't, whether it's because you have no monies or you live in the states like me and can't find one?
Have you ever wanted, in lieu of the real thing, to replicate the 324d/td but disappointingly realized that there weren't any good diesel engines and transmissions to truly recreate the authentic experience?
Do you like the idea of fuel efficiency and slow and steady cruising down the Autobahn?
If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, I have great news for you!
This mod is just what you've been looking for!
What this mod adds:
- Accurate real-life replicas of the famous 2.4L M21D24 six-cylinder engines with torque and power values taken from Wikipedia
324d TorqueCurve: (no turbo)
324td TorqueCurve: (with turbo!)
All of them are based on real gear ratios I had to do some research to find online (on an obscure E30 wiki!)
- Getrag 242 4-speed, 240 5-speed, and 260 5-speed transmissions
- ZF 4HP22 4-speed automatic and ZF 3HP22 3-speed automatic
- You can use all the transmissions on gasoline ETK-I engines, too!
"2400d" vs 324d:
- A diesel fuel tank with the same capacity as the real-life base E30 fuel tank, of 55 Liters on the dot!
- Did I mention that there's a beater variant of the engine, too?
- Everything also works with the legacy pack ETK-I (etkichassis_16 in the vehicles folder), so you can use this with the old legacy fixed ETK-W (etkiandw_legacyfix in this post)!
- And, last but not least, some configs to help you get started for which I tried my best to make them look like pictures of the real thing!
"2400td" vs 324td:
So what are you waiting for!? Download today and take a smokey trip back into the 80s...into the days where more fuel economy meant more polluting!!!
