    Hi all, my nephew wants to change the engine of his Prado 1999 LWB which presently has a 3L (which is sluggish) with manual trans. Kindly discuss the pros and cons of all the avilable choices Diesel/Petrol. The purpose is to get more "ONROAD" power out of it. I would be greatfull if you can give prices also.


    Thanks

    @ Jeepaholic............ if it is a 99 prado then it must have come with 1KZ or 1 KD. if he has worn out any of the above i would suggest he go for 1 KZ. it is a very tough engine and can take the beating here in Pakistan on and off road.


    1 KD is a troubled engine.....avoid it.

    The new petrol engines that come in the latest shape is awesome. The 4000cc one. The 3400cc is no slouch either, but i would stear away from all 2700 vvti and non vvti engines.

    my friend bought a UN auctioned prado with 3L
    pick and torque was awesome but
    it refused to cross 120km/hr on motorway

    thank god he sold it
