Looking at the M series it is noted that the engine displacement is the same 203 Cubic inches for M7040, M8540 and M9540. The higher output of 85 hp and 95 hp is achieved via the added turbo charger on those models. The M7040 is a normally aspirated engine. So in theory we should be able to backfit a turbo kit to the M7040 and get increased output such as in the case of the Gale Banks kits for turbo diesel pick up trucks. Has anyone out there added or considered a turbo to their tractors??
