    @cougar I thought 1kz was a turbo charged engine, what makes you think it is not?

    your best bet is to go for same engine & transmission which came in diesel models of similar land cruiser together with ECU and all other electronics. This may cost you more upfront but think on the positive side. Less headache, easy conversion process, easy to trouble shoot OEM geniunity and driving pleasure of the vehicle.

    I think Prado has the same I6-3.0 engine and swapping a modern engine + transmission form later year will prove beneficial .


    Nothing wrong with turbo diesel engines. Actually turbo is more reliable on diesel engines providing your fuel system is working fine.

    The 2L, 2.4 litre 4 cylinder

    The 2L-T ,2.4 litre 4 cylinder turbo and was used in Surfs.

    The 3L, 2.8 litre 4 cylinder. Hiace ZR vans

    The 5L and 5LE are 3.0 litre 4 cylinder engines, the 5LE is computer controlled. These replaced the 3L in the Aus. spec Hiluxes.

    The 1KZ-TE is found in Hilux SR5s up to 2004 and is a turbo 4 cylinder computer controlled diesel.

    Experts, am I right with the above info???
    If better were within, better would come out.

    6 cylinder diesel came stock in this LC. I think the code is 1HD. It will be an easy fit and works great. Nothing like a diesel especialy in suv's. Diesel rules.

    id cng it personally. i think the conversion may be complicated with the 4wd hardware and youll need to change the transmission and god knows wat else. plus its a nice looking 4x4 by the time the mechanics finish with it itll not b so nice---oil on interior trim---electrical probs etc----conversions can come out good but its always a lil bit of a gamble......not a problem if u have an unlimited budget and time though. so ur call

    @zeelaf
    Brother first of all ur cruiser is a LHD and than u wanna swap ur engine...my advice is get a good contact in Miraan Shah and swap the whole vehicle including the engine....and if u just wanna swap the engine than go for the original diesel, i mean 24 valve 4.2 diesel turbo...by the way where are u located in pakistan bcause i can see some american cars in the background of the second pic... the engine in ur vehicle is 1FZ-FE(gasoline) and what u should get is 1HD-T(Diesel) or 1HD-FTE (Diesel).

    Dear All,
    The guy wants to covert from GAS to DIESEL.
    Pl note that GAS is in fact GASOLINE which is PETROL.
    Really amazed we r so much in CNG that with GAS it is always CNG in our mind.
    GAS Can be any thing i.e. methane, propane, hydrogen, oxygen etc.
