    Default options for swaping khyber engine

    Salam all
    I want to change my Khyber engine.
    I am personally considering these three options

    1. Overhaul the stock engine. (the only reason i am worried about this option is that sometimes it doesnt work and the whole process goes useless)
    2. Swap for a Margalla 1000cc/1300cc engine
    3. Swap for a Vitz engine.

    Can anyone please share your experties regarding these options or any other options you would suggest?

    Thanks

    brother find a kabli packed engine in shooba bazar or you can find it in rawalpindi. very good condition kabli engine's are available which is best sort of your problem dont go for engine overhaul job because it also cost's the same price as of kabli engine so go for a kabli engine and your problem will be solved for atleast 3-4 year.

    never ever swap engines as the stock engine is engineerd for your car and mounts perfectly in place, else you will spend your weekends in workshop.

    Try to rebuild it, it works most of the time and as its your car most of the parts will be reliable.
    else get the same kabuli engine from shoba if you can find.

    Go for a G13 swap. Rebuilding is not recommended by me.

    Thanks Proverbial brother. our current mileage is 200 to 205 long route (in 8kg CNG).
    any idea how G13 will affect the mileage? plus our vehicle frame is already weak. will it still be suitable to swap for G13?
