    Default Engine swap for pajero

    Hello everyone. Iam new to these forums although i have been visiting these forums regularly. I want to take advice from members regarding changing engine for my pajero. I have a LWB 1985 non turbo pajero. It consumes engine oil and is difficult to start especially since the onset of winters. My question is
    1. Whether engine change is a better option than overhauling the engine.
    2. Can engines of gen 2 like 4d56 or 4M40 be installed without major modifications.
    Thanks.

    I presume you are running a naturally aspirated 4D55. Shifting over to a 4D56, an intercooled turbo version, should make the world of a difference. 4M40....the engine fitting is not meddlesome but the gearbox is much larger and would need lots of cutting/welding....and the engine gearbox price would be another killer....so stay away from it. But if money is no major consideration and you really want to fly to surprise some of those stiff necked 1 KZ owners, go for a 4D56....the twin cam EFI version or the V6 6G72..... that'll be money well spent!!!

    @Mitsu_Man
    Thanks a lot for the valuable advice. You are right,its running on 4D55 which was overhauled about 6-7 yrs ago. I think i will go for a 4D56. Any idea from where can i get a good replacement in Rwp/Pesh.

    @ugkhan,

    Finding the oil burner in pesh/rwp shouldn't be much of a problem. SHOBA or the RAILWAY bridge saddar in respective cities should have ample stock. Another valuable tip, get one off still strapped to the half cut and don't forget to get that 15 day warranty period!!!

    Got the engine changed. A relative in Pesh got the job done. Its a 4d56 in pretty good condition. World of difference between the stock engine and this one. A bundle of thanks to everyone for their valuable advice and offers for help.
