    Default Engine Swap for Surf

    Bros, I want to change my 2LTE (2.4 lit turbo) engine with a 1KZ series. Any advice on following would be helpful:-
    a. Is 1 kZ TE engine better or simple 1KZ?
    b. What all needs to be changed apart from the engine?
    c. What is the price range of conversion?
    Thanks

    If you think efi is not an issues than 1kz-TE is definitely better. No idea about prices

    is it true that if I dont opt for EFI, then I dont have to go for a new computer and wiring harness etc? I am sure that 2LTE's computer + wiring wouldnt do.

    I think 1kz is only available with EFI. It was available in Rawalpindi for Rs.75000 with computer.
    KZ series (3.0)

    AOA,

    Dear greyperegrine bhai,

    Quoting Wikipedia.
    "The 1KZ-T is an early version of 1KZ-TE, 2982 cc, 4 cylinders, SOHC, 2 valve per cylinder turbo diesel engine. Bore is 96 mm and stroke is 103 mm, with a compression ratio of 21.2:1. Maximum output is 125 hp (93 kW) @ 3600 rpm and maximum torque is 29.3 kgf·m (287 N·m) @ 2000 rpm."
    This engine is most probably very difficult to find as most of the engines in the Pindi market are 1KZ-TE. This engine cost around 1lac with all the accessories. Engine alone is priced at 65-75k.
    If you try to run it with a simple fuel pump and no EFI it will give a very bad fuel economy and power will also be less than the rated 125hp.
    Since you are planning this engine replacement for your Surf I suggest that you take it to the border and have the new surf 1KZT-E engine installed with all the EFI and stuff.
    I have a CJ-7 with 2L-T and I have been thinking of replacing it with a 1KZ-T for a long long time.
    Wasalaam


    If you opt for a non EFI 1KZ engine it will not be as powerful or fuel econimical as the EFI version
