    Default Replacing Cultus 1000cc carb Engine with G15 Engine - Is it a good idea for my Needs?

    Hi,

    I own a cultus 2003 VXL model... It is running fine but I am not getting a good mileage on Petrol (8-9km/liter within city with AC) and the ac seems to be less efficient as well... Plus Turning AC on decreases the pickup highly and the car seems to be considerably slow and the RPM goes down highly as well...!

    So, I am thinking to replace its engine with a G15 Engine which I think is suitable for cultus (learned this from other old threads on PakWheels). But will it be helpful in the following cases:

    1. Improvement in AC performance - Is it the Cultus AC which is not much efficient or the Engine power is the problem?

    2. Improvement in AC Load Performance - Currently the car feels very heavy on AC turned on, the RPM and Acceleration decrease considerably as well. Will this issue get solved with this replacement?

    3. Fuel Economy - Currently I am getting around 8-9KM/liter with AC in city... I have heard that G15 engine can increase it to 14km/liter... Is it true?

    4. Pickup & Performance - My cultus can do 0-80km/hr easily without AC, but it is difficult for it to go up to 130KM/hr... And with AC, I never tried to make it go above 80km/hr as I feel that engine can break at higher speed lol - Will this issue be solved as well with this replacement?

    I am really worried about these things... So, if anyone can help me and guide me... I really appreciate it.... If there is any other way, please let me know as well...!

    And can anyone tell me how much it will cost me??

    Thanks
    Sami

    Sell the cultus and get something better or stay with it the way it is. As your car is not realy old swaping engine isnt a gud idea

    What fuel are you running your car on?
    Is your car maintained properly? E.g are the tappets adjusted,spar plugs changed,air filter clean

    Is your ac serviced since you bought the car?
    Is there proper gas in the ac system?

    I am running it on petrol... And I recently got its carburetor cleaned and adjusted, rpm adjusted, air filter, petrol filter and I think there was some third filter as well changed (installed brand new ones).... And I got its ac system completely serviced, washed, and filled it with totally new gas....!

    Don't know about the spark plugs.... The AC is fine actually...... But if the car keeps on running for some time its efficiency decrease somewhat during the Day.... and the air it spits out does not feel considerably cool..... During the night I have to stop it at different intervals as it cools the car very nicely.... But during the sunny day it is not much efficient... But this is also not the main problem..... As soon as the AC is turned on, it feels like someone has put a lot of weight on the engine and the rpm drops considerably... Like suppose if it is on 3500, it goes to 2000 or less..... and so the acceleration!

    Might be possible that your compressor is faulty and putting extra load on engine thus decreasing fuel economy, or might be gas is over charge no sure about this.

    Check ur rubber pipes that are connected with carburetor. ...those small thin rubber pipes might have tears in them or one of them might not be connected at all.

    I had the rpm dropping down issue and the car felt heavy .in the end one of those rubber pipes had a crack and one wasnt connected at all..so check them.

    Is ur ac's blow alright? The compressor might also be over charged with gas too.

    looking at your question

    first your car needs alot of attention ...such low millage means something is faulty .... AC does give load but not that much

    you need to check a proper mechanic for these issues ...... engine will solve these issues only if you are looking for more


    otherwise even the carb engine is good enough to operate

    if the engine is week and needs replacement then G15/G16 is the best option you can get...alot of friends and customers have done it and they are more then satisfied

    Swaping isnt gud idea bcz i assumed ur car to be 2013 manufactured but since its 2003 so better sell it nd get some late model car. Swaping by local ustads is like destroying ur car by paying money. Ac in even new cultus works this way. It dont realy cools the cabin upto mark during peak hours. Bas "hava" thandi deta hy par cabin thnda nae krta

    Looks like ur heart is set on a swap. Don't be enticed by FB pages with swapped shiny cars, a swap where the owner is not very technically sound, turns out to be a disaster. These early PKDM cultus' are work horses, do not ruin your car. It's like killing a bee with a bullet. Get the issues fixed, get the compressor checked by someone that's not a monkey, get the timing checked, put new plugs and get your carb serviced by a specialist. You will regret a swap. It's not just throwing in an engine and then enjoy 20kmpl of fuel average and tire smoking acceleration, on the internet it's easy, in the real world, it's a pain in the @55 to even get the motor to work.
