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??

Out in the rockeys dealers do this all the time because of the altitude. Kubota builds almost every engine in the line in a turbo version for other applications. However its not an inexpensive process - way more money than just buying the bigger tractor to begin with.

M6040 and M7040 share the 203 CI engine. The M8540 and M9540 share a 230 CI turbo charged engine.......
