    Default Vitz 1.0 to 1.5L conversion, complete list of swap parts required.

    Solution
    AoA...can anyone guide me based on their experience with similar projects about what are the bill of material to consider if going for 1.0 to 1.5L conversion in 05-09 vitz, getting a half cut of 2014 vitz and seller is offering to takeout the following:-

    complete engine + transmission+ engine wiring +ECU+ radiator+front axle +brake rotors+exhaust system(partial and remaining from other toyota cars) +front shocks+brake booster...does this BoQ is complete for a painless swap? Do i need to convert rear brake drums to ventilated disk setup for a comfortable braking?

    OR...i need anything else from half cut? does existing dash wiring + fuse box will serve the purpose or need a swap there as well? this area is most confusing for me SO plz guide me here

    Appreciate accurate and timely advice

    You have asked a very difficult question, some other pak wheeler has previously upgrated from 1.0 to 1.3 in 60k.
    How much are you getting for the first half?

    Go to Facebook and contact all motor. They have a Facebook page and will help you out with the finest details.

    You obviously need engine, transmission, ecu, proper wiring, suspension, brakes, etc of 1.5 vitz to have a perfect swap. Rest of the job is of mechanic and electrician.

    2014 half cut will have alot of parts different from your model

    u will need RS axles and mounts from older version

    rest you can stay with yr car current stuff..suspension and brakes ...no need to replace ...its only if u want to enhance brakes ...you can source RS version complete half cut
