My preferred choice is the Renault 2.1 normally aspirated diesel, these were fitted to many Renault and Citroen models and produce 110BHP.

These units sit vertically and are easliy installed, but the final drive in the transfer case needs altering to correct the gearing. These are reliable engines, and modern derivatives are still manufactured, thus parts are readily and cheaply available.
