Work has been carried out using four stroke single cylinder diesel engine with retrofit attached with fuel injector and at optimum injection pressure 210 bar and 230 BTDC. The main purpose of using retrofit is to achieve HCCI (Homogeneous charge compression ignition) with which emissions can be reduced. Four Variants of retrofits were used and with V-cut type retrofit it was found that there is reduction in toxic emission like CO and NO but there was slight increase in HC emission when compared with normal fuel injector. Engine performance was compared with normal injector and injector with V-cut and it was found that Break thermal efficiency was increased by 0.25% at full load and 1.53% at 80% load and specific fuel consumption decreased by 0.01%.
