Re: 2.4 JTDm peak power
the block isnt modern, it was desinged by VM Motori in the 70's. i think 1979 was first use of the 2.4 diesel in production, in the alfa alfetta. but the head is definately modern, its the first generation of common rail diesel on earth, designed in the early/mid 90's at powertrain turin.
it has been proven that you can greatly increase the power and torque simply by remapping, with no problem other than premature clutch failure. i'm yet to hear of a single remap related engine failure.
