    Default Help required kia sportage

    So guys few days back I bought Kia Grand Sportage 2004 model. It was orignally in diesel thn engine swaped to 3S toyota petrol engine. CNG also installed. Performance on CNG is pretty good. I am having no issues in it yet.

    As its manual transmission & I want to change it to auto. So what U guys suggest which 4x4 gear box will suit 3S rear wheel coil engine? And what are the other issues in conversion? Presently I am v.much satisfied from its pick, starting, speed, consumption etc

    Guys! I hv good experience of changing 2.OD indus corolla to 16 valve pereol with auto gear & all japanese stuff etc. but I really dont know what to do with sportage. I am really fedup of changing gears all the time so finally have decided to swap manul gears to auto

    Your precious suggestions & comments are more thn welcome.

    Cheers....

    I don't know which transmission to install but the idea is good, auto is very relieveing, and as it is ur daily runner so its better to change. Best of luck, bacha ustaad zindabad

    Its really strange & amazing that I hvn't got any worthy feedback yet. Today I spent abt an hour in Shuba with different mechanics. It seems v.difficult to swap to auto gear with active 4x4.
    Only one mechanic said that hilux pickup gear box is compatable with this setup. But I am not sure how he will install this.
    Any one who have any idea is pls requested to share his experience

    it would be economical but unfortunately i m getting 45 km in 8 kg cng. and the cng mechanics recommend that it is 2.0 so it will never give u more 65 to 70km in 8kgs.
