    Default 2C Engine in a Cj-7. Advice needed

    Salam all,
    I've been looking at a CJ-7 recently. Which runs on a 2C engine (2.0D waala).
    However, i've been having reservations about such a small engine. On a test run, i could go upto 80km/hr on 5th gear on 3000 RPM. Pushing it higher would mean a very high rpm on 5th gear. However, the Jeep had very high tires, engine's pump needed cleaning, maintenance etc.
    My question was, if i have the engine cleaned and services, thinner tires (it has very wide ones), higher gear ratio, would i be able to achieve a lot higher speeds?
    I need to have a Jeep that can go 110km/hr at least for longer trips. Would a 2C engine be too small for this?
    If not, then what about the 3CT-E Engine? Would it be able to achieve such speeds? And any idea how much a kabli one would cost in pindi?
    Also, what are your thoughts on the 2L-T? I've often read people here advising against the 2L. What consumption can i expect from a 2L-T?
    Thank you for your time.

    Well you can get the puump redone. That will help.
    A 3CT is a lot better than a natural aspirated 2C. You will get around 20% to 25% extra power for the additional 200cc and a turbo.
    I am running a 3CT in my CJ7 with 31x10.5x15LT. It easily does 110 km/H on motor way and returns 14 km/L millage.
    But I do not try that often as the ceter of gravity on a CJ7 is even higher than the normal SUVs i.e Prados and Pejeros.. so I do not try to take it above 100km/H. Though I have carcked 120 once and it did it with ease.
    3CT is a better option than a 2LT. Only a 3L, 5L or a 1KZ will superseed a 3CT not 2LT.

    Thank you for your reply. Any idea how much a kabli 3CT would cost? I am out of town for a week and will be a while before i can visit pindi.
    Also, 3CT or 3CTE? Economy is very important to me. What is the major difference between these two?
    Once again, thank you for your time

    @ PunjabiMC. There're a lot of threads in the very forum that discuss engine comparisons ranging from 1C - 1KZTE, and there compatibility with different engine bays like Ford 1943 - CJ7. Feel free to browse https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/eng...on-powertrain/

    Also, check this offroadpakistan weblink for wealthy recommendations ...

    I am not sure bout the price, but I think it should be around 55K. But I am not sure.

    The major difference between a 3CT and 3CT-E(according to my knowledge) is that the fuel pump is electronic and on a 3CT-E has an intercooler whereas a 3CT is just turbo charged.
    A 3CT-E is a beter choice coz I am sure that an intercooler can give you a few extra horses and if you drive it with a light foot, it should return a better millage; atleat theoretically.

    These days these Diesels are difficult to find, but I am sure you can find on in either Sultan da Khoo or Shoba.

    I hav installed 1 kz in my CJ5 and it's a power house. Although it can cross 120km on motorway but not recomemded to cross 80 km. Also CJ's r not recommended for long journeys being uncomfortable. These jeeps r made for off roading only.
    One more thing, 1 kz is fuel thirsty but has lot of torque.

    My recommendation is go for 2L-II turbo with out EFI as they are more conventionally fit in these kind of machines you want . and if you need more efficiency(in terms of fuel only) than 3CT will be the excellent choice but it is high REV engine , which is not recommended for off roading . but you will be happy on highways.
