    Default upgrade/swap mini pajero Engine

    hi,

    I have pajero mini 660 turbo but it give problem on CNG. It does not have enough pick and on AC it get worse. I am thinking to upgrade the engine with a bigger size.
    What options i have to upgrade the existing one and how much it will squeeze my pocket. Car is manual transmission.

    Thanks

    let me get this straight - you have a 660cc engine which you bought for cheap commuting, then also added CNG.. hmm interesting. So now you are thinking of changing the engine - why not just use it on petrol. By the time you will justify the cost of the swap it will have become too expensive.

    Its like a person I met in Karachi who had bought a used prius.

    He installed CNG in it. So the driving cycle was.

    EM ----- Engine --- CNG ---- brakes ----- EM ----- engine ------ CNG --- brakes all day long.

    EM = electric motor.

    I had mini pajaro and I know how expensive it is on petrol though it has a 660cc engine still it wont give you more than 10km/l so he is justified in using cng. however there are serious pick up problems with this engine . Get it converted to a 1100cc junior pajero engine and convert it to manual transmiision . Total cost i year back was around 40000.

    I think when you buy such a car you have to use a little common sense - it will never ever be fuel economical with such a tiny engine and such a large bodyshell and large tires.

    It can be economical if you drive it under 35 km/h all day

    result - chuck it out and get something like a proper sedan

    @Xulfiqar. Thanks, you did a good analysis, converting it to bigger engine will make it too expensive and will be difficult to sell on my demand.
