Outdated Garvil New Off-Road Engine Parts 2016-09-01

Roamer and D-series recieve new i6 reproduction turbocharged engine, and new low-range trans

  1. The Gas Station
    tl,dr: This is a mod for the Roamer and D-Series, aimed for 4-wheeling and off-roading.
    It adds a slot for turbochargers in the 4.1 I6 engine.
    It also adds a 6-speed manual gearbox with a very low 1st gear, functioning as a low-range gear, ideal for crawling.

    Backstory (Fictional, right?)
    In an interview back in 1995, Garvil's CEO is quoted saying "If you have a problem, put a V8 in it. If that still ain't workin', add in a stage 2 supercharger. That's how I deal with problems, and it worked out fine so far, didn't it?". In a way, that perfectly explains Garvil CEO's supercharged beer belly Garvil's drivetrains of the time: The V8's were used for maximum power, whether it is for the D-series, the Roamer, the H-series, or any other big vehicle.
    But with all that V8-ness, the I6 engines were pretty much forgotten, and remained only for the cheapest versions, powerless and outdated.

    That is, until 2006. Rising demands in the Garvil aftermarket for a reliable engine, suitable for towing and off-road applications, that's very powerful at low-rpm, caused Dried engineers to go back to the I6, and give it another try. The reason the I6 was chosen is simple, and would be demonstrated with some game code Dyno-result charts below:

    4.5L V8:
    Code:
        "enginetorque":[
            ["rpm", "torque"]
            [0, 0],
            [500, 125],
            [1000, 192],
            [2000, 290],
            [3000, 340],
            [4000, 345],
            [5000, 325],
            [6000, 295],
            [7000, 185],
            [8000, 75],
        ],
    4.1L I6:

    Code:
        "enginetorque":[
            ["rpm", "torque"]
            [0, 0],
            [500, 200],
            [1000, 285],
            [1750, 310],
            [2000, 309],
            [3000, 305],
            [4000, 304],
            [5000, 264],
            [6000, 170],
            [7000, 85],
            [8000, 45],
        ],
    As you can see, the V8 is much more powerful. But that is, so long as you look at peak numbers. Actually, at the low rpm region, the numbers are in favor of the I6!
    Dried fitted the renewed cast-iron block I6 with aftermarket turbochargers (a rather unique setup for a Garvil engine, that actually proved to be very reliable even at relatively high boost pressure). These I6 reproduction crate-motors were sold from 2006 to 2012*, for various applications, mainly for everyday heavy-duty towing applications, who can benefit a lot from the low-rpm torque curve, and the incredible reliability of the engine. Off-road applications, namely rock-crawlers, also benefit from this engine.
    Dried also featured an optional 6-speed manual gearbox paired with this engine (which is a setup never seen before on a Garvil vehicle), with low range gears.

    *Production of this engine ceased in 2012, after Garvil themselves introduced ------------------------------- .

    the bison is amazing exept for the engine which is just, simply put, broken or outdated but easily fixed by chucking a dove engine as they go almost slower than this is supposed to

    Fantastic! I've always wanted to crawl with the straight 6 but there was not enough power and torque, but now I can and the granny-low transmission is awesome too!
