    Lightbulb Vitz Swap, Help Required

    The requirement is to have a daily driver with good reliable performance on home-office commute. I currently own 1.3vitz and I intend to keep it as is. The plan is to buy a vitz 1.0 2005/2006 and swap in 1nzfe or 1zzfe, manual.

    In my understanding Vitz 1.0 in good condition and with some engine problems can be fetched for 825 ~ 850k

    This is where I need your help,
    A. 1NZFE or 1ZZFE (Want the swap to be rather straight forward with less/no modification to body)
    B. Cost of engine
    C. Cost of swap
    D. Which mechanic in Lahore can do the job well
    E. Cost/implications of transferring engine on the registration papers.
    F. As per my understanding, It should cost somewhere around 950k. What resale hit is expected (Being real).
    E. Am I missing something ?

    I've never swapped / did any major modification to my car ever before, and need to start by this relatively straight forward setup. JazakAllah for helping !

    IMO the 2005/06 vitz with some serious engine issues should cost u under 8lacs.

    Wonder why would you opt for this hassle when u can find a clean 2007vitz in ur total budget.
    The manual transmission ones re also available....

    @haiderjaved, clean 2007 will be 1.0 which is as good as dead to drive. And I need to do the swap once at least.

    Your last line says It all, go ahead if u want to have the swap experience, but u know there's price for everything and I hope u keep that price in mind before u jump into it.

    Best of luck with this project

    I purchase 1.3 liter vitz eng for 27 k , but you'll need all the housing so it'll cost around 35 k (No modification) + 5k for mechanic!
