Truck Engine Overhaul v1.05 + fix

Ever since I learned about this game I wanted to make more variation to engine choices on it, and after playing ETS2
for many hours, I also found other things I wanted to alter. Here is the Truck Engine Overhaul v.1.05 mod!

*Tested on version 1.7.0 - 1.8.2.5s
*Will likely not work on earlier versions (New Volvo as of 1.7.0 is included in the mod)
*Should work with any other mod that doesn't change vanilla engines in any way (another added engines should work ok)
*You are free to use this mod as a part of your own mod or pack, but if you do, credit TurboJ, please.

Highlights of this mod:
*Adds realistic new engines and engine versions to make every truck competitive in the game
*This mod retains truck brand balance as found in vanilla game
*Alters engine prices to better differentiate them from each other and adding a bit of thought to upgrading your truck
*Displays engine displacement in engine names (displacement affects the fuel consumption if you have fuel simulation on)
*Alters certain unlock levels for engines for better balance between truck marques
*Alters engine brake effect so that smaller displacement engines have slightly less engine brake (not exhaust brake)
*Alters Scania and Volvo engines so that Euro 6 versions have lower fuel consumption than Euro 5 ones
*Changes Mercedes (Majestic) engine names to actual real life names
*Adds smaller-capacity real-life engine versions that have lower fuel consumption (DAF and Scania)
*Adds performance tuned versions of certain vanilla engines for best hp to fuel efficiency ratio
*Adds real-life aftermarket engines from Cummins and Caterpillar available to certain truck models
*Engine upgrades show the correct badge corresponding to engine power on your truck (where applicable)
*Fixes Volvo D13 engine displacement from 16.1 liters to actual 12.8 liters (lowered fuel consumption vs. vanilla).
*Adds a special highly tuned Volvo FH 12.8 litre engine to enable higher powered trucks with the black grille, almost FH16-750 performance
*All new engines and engine versions have been researched and adjusted to portray their real-life equivalents
*Aftermarket and special engine prices reflect the custom work necessery to convert your truck
*Special added engines are intended to suit the brand image of each respective truck
*No imaginary engines or upgrades, everything 100% realistic
*Additionally, several small fixes to vanilla engine specifications (closer to real life)

More options can be added and values altered as we gather experience on this mod in practice.
The mod is quite new, so there is a possibility of a bug somewhere - in that case just report here please, so I can fix it!
