    Default khyber project

    a relative of myne has a khyber in appauling condition, engine is almost at the edge of self distruction and almost all mechanical parts need servising/refurbishing or replacemnt.....

    well my samester break is coming so we have thought to restore it ourself.. and also have thought to make it a bit more powerfull, safe everyday runner....

    so what are my engine options.....

    1) rebuild its original engine......
    no performance increase... i dont liek the engine and the gear box because of its ratios....

    2) cultus engine.....
    almost same engine apart,just an ohc.... same khyber ratios....

    3) margalla's carby 1.3 engine....
    well significant power gain.... will it fit without any cutting welding of the body...

    4) baleno's 1.3 efi engine
    my favourite egine for the job.... very good performance for light weight khyber, efi... the question again, cutting welding of the body......


    well also i need the aproximate price of these engiens apart from the fitting and stuff.....

    other modification i have in mind include
    -brakes
    well the brakes of swift gti will be the best option but the fact is that its quiet difficult to find out here in pak, so i think my options are brakes of anybigger suzuki car , like nragalla or baleno.... i think being of the same brand minimal modification will be needed

    suspension
    the same is the case with suspension... margalla's suspension...


    power stearing...
    again i have margalla plus power stearing mechanism in mind


    Note...
    the car will be on cng as it will be a daily runner and its purpose wont be to race or drag, just to have some power under your feet.....

    i am involving myself in this project because allthe work will be done our self, this includes rebuilding the engine (if the old one is used) and swapping the engine (if new one is used), and as i will be free for a month or so, it will be a great oppertunity to have some practical experience in the field i love the most...
    thanks
    its all about power to weight ratio...

    I can not guide you regarding technicalities but I will have a keen eye on the proceedings. As I also fantasize building a similar project by the end of this year hopefully.

    salam,
    @ghuncha.
    ENGINE
    well among the engines u have listed i think Margalla carby will be economical and good.as u already know it pulls like some 60ish hp . the prices were like 20+ thousand with gear box here in lahore.
    saw one khyber with margalla engine. it wasn't like a rocket but was quite good in pick .
    baleno engine is better but will be expensive.
    SUSPENSION
    well i have a margalla and the frontsuspension is quite ok and will give comfort in khyber but rear suspension of margalla isn't that good specially in cars having spacers
    with springs(cng cars).
    Brakes
    the brakes of margalla are good but i think khyber brakes are also good and will be able to handle the power from a margalla engine.
    Power steering
    margalla plus's system is perfect.
    good luck with the project.

    i am also looking for some khyber these days . some old model in 90's and to restore it and use it for some daily driving. its a very good chasis to work on .
    regards
    bye

    The engines you've mentioned will not give you that much power you are aiming for,swap a Suzuki G13b DOHC to make her a pocket rocket.
    I know tomorrow brings the consequence at hand, but I keep living this day like the next will never come.
