Yes Case-IH put an 8.3 in their combines(2188, 2388 etc). We have a 2-105 with a 5.9 in turned up well over 190Hp. We also have an 8.3 in a 2-155 MFWD running 235+ hp. I guess it is up to how and what you will be doing with the tractor. A 8.3 will bolt right in a 2-135 with mounts out of a 160. You just have to drill 2 holes into the frame for the rear mounts and tap for 1/2" bolt holes. I will tell you the 8.3 will run the 3 rows of 12ft high corn thru the chopper @ 1800 rpms working its heart out at about 3 mph. The 2-105, unless you have that thing wound over 1800 rpms it will not pull. You have to keep that turbo spooled or it will die. It likes about 2100 and above. There is no way I would have put an 5.9 in a 20K lbs tractor. Believe me, I like the 5.9 but without the turbo spooled up, it has no torque. We also have a 2150 mfwd with a hercules in to compare the others against. It compares with the 8.3 very well. Like they say, there is no replacement for displacement.
