    Default Suggestions for Sportage engine swap

    Hi,
    I am currently looking for engines that can be put in my Sportage 2003 model. My preferences are:

    - The swap should be bolt on (or with minimum alteration)
    - The engine should be turbo diesel (preferably Toyota)

    If any one has had experiences of this sort of swap , please share your experiences including the prices, workshops and the places to buy in Karachi.

    Secondly, please also advise if rebuilding the stock engine in Sportage is a better alternative.

    thanks.

    A friend of mine has swapped 3S 2L engine of 97-98 Toyota Crown in his father's Govt. 2002 Sportage and its working like charm. Go for it; its average is also very good and with CNG it won't cost you more than Rs.5/- per km

    bolt on fit is a Mazda RF 2.2, it is also available with turbo. costs around 40k.

    Toyota engine 3S or 3C require alterations with engine mounts and gear box fitting require a customized plate, but still work fine as long as you do not do extreme off roading or overloading.
    Keep a cool head and wear seatbelts!
