    Question Restoration of Lazzaz

    After her last glorifying act of winning the night mud rally, Lazzaz died on the way back from Lahore. She was a heart patient and got real excited after winning the rally and hence the heart failure.

    Below are the pictures of her after winning the rally.

    I was opting for 3C turbo engine but due to the scarcity of diesel engines in the market, 3S will be the new motor.
    Engine has been purchased and hopefully, I will be getting Lazzaz back sometime next week. What should be must to do/consider for replacing 2C turbo with 3S????

    Has anyone done this swap? Do I need to change the gears? Current setup is Rocky 5 speed gear and differentials.

    After the engine, next step will be suspension upgrades to take the abuse in rally conditions. What needs to be done to improve stability at high speeds? Will dual shocks on all four wheels help???

    Any kind of valid/invalid wild ideas and suggestions are highly welcomed.Restoration of Lazzaz - 67786

    Next is replacing all the belts, check each and every nut/bolt and replace any desi stuff.

    Getting Denso Iridium IK-20 and cone air intake. Already have installed HKS universal free flow exhaust.

    List is long, I will sort one thing at a time and ofcourse need all the inputs and valuable suggestions.
    Good going Ahsan

    Regarding the air intake, since Jhal is very very dusty, normal intakes inside the engine bay get overwelmed, raised air intake/snorkel is thus a must for Jhal. I know it looses you a couple of horses but, you will be able to finish the rally without killing your engine, Inshallah

    Point is that firstly the air filter/cone should not be inside the engine bay and secondly it should be somewhere where it get frest air i.e. not under the seats as well. Good place is to clamp it over the bonnet or the roll cage

    Isn't the roll cage too hollow??I mean shouldn't the roll cage be close-knitted for a soft top rally jeep.
    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

    Imtishal,

    Yes it should have more triangulation at the top and also on doors. But we ended up with this design as rally will be just one time or once a year. The participation is to get the feel and if the rally bug bites, might go for a purpose built rally vechile.

    @Parapilot
    Great Going Ahsan Bahi.I am glad that Lazaaz is in very good hands.
    Please do confirm regarding the leaf spring replacement.As u broke one in Neelam Valley & a desi pata was added.
    Your shocks will be not performing well if you are still using that desi leaf spring.Also make sure that all the center bolts of leaf spring are Japanese.as once I broke a central bolt of leaf spring of left kamani (front side) once i borrowed Lazaaz from you for shikar & I still remember hamid was laying under her in December in shikar field to fix a nail in place of that broken center bolt & it took us 1.5 hour & help of a tractor hydrolic lift to do the same.
    One broken central bolt nutt & you will be khuda na khasta out of the rally.
    Also check the strength of the gear & engine foundations.Once I had willys (prior to Lazaaz) it use to break the gear foundations on high speed Jumps.But that one was 3c turbo diesel & your one is petrol so much lighter but I think you are using the same gear?
    Also whats the temperature status on continuous full throttle sand H-4 stretch.My experience on Rocky gear with Diesel engine that on Motorway from ISb to Chakri temp started climbing on full throttle & high RPM's or above 120Km/H due to the difference of ratio between engine, gear & Diffs.As long as I remember u are using the same Diffs with Rocky Diana 5 5fwd gear.
    More over the support of the radiator in the engine bay will not support the rally requirement.You should build a cage type box mounted on the frame & front grill of the vehicle to provide you the strength on the high speed bumps.Like the one we use to have for batteries desi build by Jamel dentor @ City saddar road.An additional electric fan will be also useful.
    And what about the fuel tank? I dont think u can finish rally with the 26 liter tank u got under the passenger seat.Also check the durability of fuel lines, filter & carborator pipes.Jhal is famous for its Bad quality fuel (Irani Petrol).So make sure that u carry the proper mixture of high octane & supper petrol & off-course the required amount of fuel.As Qasim bahi got an EFI 1300cc Jimny & u got an old horse with a 3s petrol engine.Mean to say your fuel consumption will be much higher as compare to saidhi bahi's.
    And one last advice...Just be calm once in Rally...your mottow is to gain experience, drive safe,finish the rally...And with all our prayers & a little good luck..Inshallah u will be on podium...beating Magsi's in Jhal Magsi is my dream....Saidhi already did....Inshallah we will do this again..either on Saidhi Bahi's Jimny....Para pilot's Lazaaz...or on Viatara (in future)...No body is perfect.....wait for others to make mistakes...u got family & friends.We all love you very much & be safe...safe drive stay alive

    By the way who will be the navigator in Lazaaz....and do care for that sign...slippery when wet

    Wish you luck....& Eid mubarik to you & family...

    DO NOT remove the thermostat valve.. its there for a purpose Install a new one if in doubt.. the fan could be belt driven or electric doesnt matter as long as the correct thermostat is in place.

    Give special attention to Kamanis, their clips, shackles bolts, U-bolts, plate, shock mounts.. also engine/gear foudations, all local welding works etc need to be checked

    Rightly mentioned by Akif, thermostat valve in the engine must never be taken out, its purpose is to keep the water flow within the engine while its cold and later to keep the flow through radiator only. Fan can be direct or otherwise, no issues, kindly keep one extra fan, you might need it after Mullah River crossing.
