Default My Gypsy rebuild - inspired from all you BHPians

Dear BHPians,

I am planning for some engine swap, i have a wide choice in front of me and hence confused. To start with i finalised to go for a petrol one and the options i have are as follows

1. 2 Litre inline 4 cylinder from Toyota Rav 4 (ACA 20) - 127 BHP
2. 2 Litre inline 4 Cylinder from Mitsubishi Pajero IO - 120 BHP
3. 2.4 Litre inline 4 Cylinder from Toyota Hilux Pickup - 135 BHP

More specifications and photographs will be provided soon.

Wow, thats an impressive list but do you really think that much power would be required in a gypsy, why not go for a subtler 1.6 baleno one.

Engine swap is easier said than done. What i would sugest is try to find an engine with dimensions similar to that of your orignal engine. I am talking about the external dimenssions like height of the engine, position of the engine mounts, the angle at which the drive shaft will be after the transplant. I feel that there is a lot of home work to be done before finalising on the engine.

Anil, I second Desmosedici...instead just go ahead with a 1.6L Baleno engine which I guess is more than enough power for a gypsy, and the transplant is more or less hasslefree, and I'd say low on maintenance as well+more reliable.

Spend the extra cash on the alloys instead

and i forgot - get a pair of nice LightForce lamps for the front (i wish i had that kind of cash :( )

^^ you have the cash

back to topic, the engines mentioned above - i would assume it will be easier to mate a maruti engine, the 1.6 for example.

And most of them were promising to arrange it in 3 weeks time and my holidays were running our by that time .. hence decided to install it before my next vacations. I will upload the pics of wheel i prefer appreicate if any one can help me is sourcing them.

Dear BHPians, thanks for your advice on the engine swap i wish if we could have more discussions and planings before i start going ahead with it. In addition to the above options recently i found one more which is the 2 Ltr in line 4 cylinder - 127 BHP from vitara 2000 model.

The reason i opted for these engines are because of the easier avaialbility than a baleno engine coz along with baleno engine i need to find the gear box too, here in Dubai the half cut of these vehicles are available in plenty only issue is transporting. Once i upload the picture for these half cuts it will be more clear to discuss.

Anil,

Suggest to check the engine mountings of the original with the another engine before you order it. The mounting on left side of the new engine might be at different location. This needs a weld on the chassis to support it.

A 1.6 has already be transplanted onto a gypsy by Extremepower, he did mentioned the job was not an easy one. And he still has some niggles. But the vehicle is performing really good.
