<h2>1.1L</h2>


The 1.1L U Diesel engine is a 3 cylinder version of the 1.5L U series
unit and is made with cast iron block and aluminum cylinder head with
chain driven DOHC with 4 valves per cylinder, Bosch common rail direct
injection (CRDi), variable geometry turbocharger (VGT) and intake air
swirl control. Bore and Stroke are 75mm x 84.5mm. It creates an
impressive 74 HP (55Kw) and 113 ft-lb (153 NM) of torque. It is one of
Hyundai's most efficient engines using only 4.2L/100km (56 MPG), and
emits a minuscule 112 g/km of CO2. The engine also incorporates a 1½
engine order balance shaft mounted under the crankshaft driven by
helical gears to manage engine vibration. It is currently fitted to the
Kia Picanto and Hyundai i10 models. And new Rio.


So have they just chopped a cylinder off the 1.5 unit.
"Hey Jimmy get the grinder oot am going to make a new engine and it will save the planet on CO2 emissions and slow the bastards down and we will kid them on about mpg figs"
"Ahh sorted ma man"

Aww Davy, thought from the post title you were putting a 1.5 CRDi into a new 1.1 Rio!!!
If you put a Briggs an Stratton Lawnmower engine in it would be a huge improvement wouldn't it M4.
