@azkhan & @testdriver - Thank you for the help and welcome note!
Gentlemen, U have no idea how glad and Happy I am to have (electronically) met you! The Daewoo Racer is my first car and has a lot of memories attached to it.
To have found people that have the same love for it is the most amazing and best news I've had in a long time! Especially since I am not a technical person and the engine / parts guidelines are extremely helpful!
Thank you for correcting me @azkhan, It was a typo on my part for the brand name for the engine. I can understand the "Indus Bumper" dislike, but I'll upload the pics, if it still seems unsightly then I can always change the bumpers.
Above all, thank you for extending to help when I come to Isloo!
I contacted Jamroz, and he referred me to
Haji Feroz (0333-523-0575)
The fellow is direct supplier - I think.
According to Haji Feroz, the A15MF engine will cost ~Rs. 30K, including 5-speed gear box, ECM, bolts & Wiring. This does not include the cost of Labor.
The dashboard cost is: (excluding labor)
Cielio: Rs. 20,000 + Rs. 4,000(Digital Speedometer)
Racer: 10,000 (Standard)
Power Steering is Rs. 8,000 (excluding labor)
Chacha Lahori (Tanveer) quoted more or less the same prices.
The Rear & Front Windshield / Door Molding is ~ Rs. 2,000 + Rs. 500 (excluding labor)
Now, @azkhan, my logistics in ISB would not be a problem since I have family there (Bani Gala), and I can hire a car to be mobile. The add-on here is transporting the parts to Karachi or the Car to ISB (Container cost Rs. 9,000 one-way).
I have a few more question though;
1. What is included / required with the A15MF engine?
2. @azkhan: could you upload the bodykit pics? would love to see them.
3. What problems are associated with the engine swap?
4. Are the replacement parts easily available?
5. Should I send the car to ISB for the Installation of parts / Equipment or take my chances in Karachi?
6. In your experience, are the prices correct?
