147 JTD M-Jet

Engine code: 192B1000 vs. 937A500

What exactly is the difference between these two engines? My 147 JTDm is imported from Belgium and has the 192B1000 136 BHP engine.

I've been told that my engine is a re-mapped version of the 937A500 (150 BHP) engine. Anyone who can confirm this?

Thanks

You are right yours is a downtuned version of the JTD multi-jet...

But there are two versions of 937A5000 150BHP, the older one (before 2006) very similar to the 140BHP JTD 16V multijet, and the newer ones are JTDm 16V which is an improved version of old multijet, with higher fuel pressure, swirl valves in the air intakes, EGT probe on the exhaust...

It is indeed because tax matters, here in Belgium we have the "right" to have downgraded versions of certain engines in order to pay less "mise en circulation" tax (it's a tax that you have to pay in order tu put you new car in the street). For example, you can choose a new the 159 with the 136 or the 150HP engine. For the 136 version you pay 495€, but for the 150HP version you pay 867€.
