Hi, Good to hear you all are safe.
I recently changed my EXI automatic transmission engine to JDM D15B Non vtec Alhamdulillah its a real Pleasure to drive a perfect combo of Power + economy car is giving me a nice consumption of 15 km/L on long routes didn't checked exactly on local but wild guess is 12km/l. Complete engine costed me 43k with complete uncut engine wiring + ECU from Rawalpindi my car was already automatic so used the old transmission over all spent 70k including complete flushing of old oils, brand new radiator + coolant, foundations, new belts, mechanic + electrician charges.
