    Question confused...plz help all u pajero experts..

    Last in all i have decided to get a PAJERO BW 1986-1996 !!

    BUT,

    Im confused between the Engines of 2 generations:
    Intercooler Vs. Non-Intercooler

    Which one will be better in long run, easy available spare parts, good mileage.


    People are advising me to go for non-intercooler as they are give far better mileage than Gen 2 and are large in numbers all over Pakistan for spare parts availibility and mostly mechanics understand old engines to fix rather then new architects...im a lot confused. What should i do?

    You could hunt for a suzuki vitara ! They have a decent drive.........or you could get a Cj-7 and do a restoration project, converting it in to a wrangler ! That could be fun and later on , you would end up making money , rather then loosing , when you dispose it !

    You heard wrong. Intercooler are better in performance and average than non intercooler. Its 1kz, will give you about 6. I am out of town, send me an email and i will tell you my address and drivers contact #, if you want to view the vehicle. Assalamwalikum.

    Nothing wrong with the Surf. 6 is what I get and thats what I wrote.
    6.25-6.5 is what i got even on my 94 3 Door Prado.
    6.25 to 6.5 is what I got on my 96 non intercooler Surf.

    When this Surf was manual it used to give about 7.

    If someone tells you that they get 8 to 9 out of a 1kz, they probably get it on a smaller lighter vehicle.

    Or maybe I drive with a heavy foot (-:

    Exclamation @sajid

    @sajid: bro ur surf is not more than 6.5 everyone in market wud say that.

    You are just asking 1.5 Lak extra money for those Big Black tyres+rims & Snorkel & seat covers, mayn.

    i know u loved ur ride, but when u go out for selling these things dont count mayn.

    The only thing counts is originality, engine, body and registration. & besides,
    that 1kZ engine is a fuel eater thats common too, plus ur whole body is re-painted.

    So bro my last last offer to you is 6.7Laks.

    @machine

    Bro, its not my first time SUV, but still finding out TODAYS economical SUV.
    I've used LandCruider Fj 60 89 model for 7 years, then Nissan Safari 4.2 L Granroad for 5 years. Both of these models were ok to me. They seemed to be economical for my pocket, both of them.

    Now the prob. is that i've never used a Pajero in life, neither any other, other than mentioned above. Thats why i was finding info about Pajero & Hilux Surf, or any other better than LC 89, or 92 Safari. Cause i have left Offroading, and i now have only City drive left in my life. Thats why i finding less off-road, less power on engine, and more budget on economy, obviously if someone isnt off-roading SUV like Safari is useless to drive in city. Bro, you must have understood all my story by now. My Budget is 10-12 Laks right now. so i need help to get a good city drive SUV fast!! i have already spent & wasted a lot of time in finding..i am tired now

    Your exhaustive research is unlikely to get you anywhere!!! Life is too short( especially if you live in Karachi and can't afford an armoured car)......so listen to your heart and get something to spend those cherished moments on or off the road, amigo!

    @sami_voodoo

    Ahoy there amigo.....longtime no see/hear.....trust you are keeping well!
    Gen 2 with a 4D55......that's one discovery or maybe its an unholy matrimony by a local 'ustad' straight outta shershah!
    Keep rolling amigo, always!
