    Default Honda City 98 Engine Swap

    Salam all,

    I was experiencing a problem with my engine, it was throwing white smoke, when I get it checked by my mechanic and he open it for piston seal change, it appears that major overhaul is required, costing around 35-40k approx.
    Please suggest if I should change my engine, which is costing around 30-40k from Shershah (VTI engine) please tell me wether should I opt for this and what should be the specs of the engine. can this VTI engine fit in my car and it is good???
    Please also tell me if it will have any effect on car sale?

    Engine swap is easy way rather then overhauling the old engine.provided u get a gud engine to swap with.what is ur current engine ?? 1.3 or 1.5.
    As for the new engine,it all depends on you.I assume all D series engine will comfortably fit,U can start from D13B4 (came in city 00-03 model) and go upto H22 or H24 even.
    But the most popular swap is D15B Vtec , it's economical yet powerful engine and runs gud on CNG.
    However,u'll be converting from Carby engine to EFI which means wiring has to be changed as well.
    Qaiser Pal,I have not failed.But found 1 of 10,000 ways which doesn't work.....Toyota driver "I couldn't repair my brakes,so i made my horn louder"..When i was born i was so surprised that i didn't talked to one and half year..since light travel faster then sound,people appear bright until you hear them speak..If u can't convince them,confuse them

    i think they should be around 5-6k coz they r the same used in other models of honda.once I was getting front rotor pair for 2k only.so price depends on the part u need.some parts are very expensive,like the front pipe under the chasis is for 8k.

    i was also thinking for swaping my city 2002 hypervalve engine.but the price of only assembly is 35k.now a days hypervalve engines are much expensive due to their unavailability..u must go for vtec.
    The best car safety device is a rear-view mirror with a cop in it.

    Impossible....

    10k ka tou sirf tappets (genuine) or us say related saman hai bhai ..han agar koi saste walaye dalne hein tou kuch kaha nahi ja sakta.
    3-4k kharad wala laye ga.
    phir mechanic ki labor etc etc....
    Total expense comes around 30-35k..

    I don't think you will be able to complete your work in 15K. Have your engine been opened?
