The engine came from a Carrier refer unit, but they're used in some Bobcats, tractors, and other applications. Rating is around 50HP/100TQ naturally aspirated.

I added the turbo and intercooler. The turbo and some fueling changes dramatically improved the performance. A friend that put one in his Ranger with a very similar setup to mine just had it dyno'd last week, and it pulled 98hp @ 2200RPM and 278 ft lbs @ 1800RPM at the rear wheels.

The picture is a year old. Since then I've tried several different turbos, so the downpipe in the picture isn't currently in use. Right now it's using a 2.25" pipe all the way, but I'm in the process of building another 3" system with better routing and design.

I'll try to write something up with more detail when I have more time!
Your buddy is "Rangmar" on the DieselBomber forum, right?

I looked into the specs on that Kubota and didn't get real excited over the ~50hp rating... 98hp sounds a lot more reasonable. I saw he was getting 40mpg or so too. Not too shabby for a 4WD Ranger with oversized tires.
