Hello, I have Pajero Mini 1996 model with 660cc turbo engine (Automatic transmission). I want to know that if I change that engine with Pajero Junior 1100cc engine with automatic transmission what things should I keep in mind and is that alteration successful ? if anyone has experience of this alteration kindly tell me what are the drawbacks of this and how is the performance of 1100cc engine ?
Actually I am changing that engine because the 660cc engine is giving me trouble specially in summer with AC on, it heats up very quickly and the go above the normal temperature range. I original single tube radiator and I have done everything from servicing the radiator and other tweaks.
Any advice will be appreciated.
EDIT: What is the reliability that it will work smooth after swapping the engine, I don't want endless mechanic trips. If it is not reliable than I sale this and get a genuine Junior. What you suggest ?
