Default Turbo for Diesel Lancer ??

Hey Guys,
I have a 8 year old Diesel Lancer with 2,35,000 on the odo
I just love my car and i cannot sell it.I am going for a new Swift VDi and plan to keep the Lancer as a standby car.
What i would like to know is whether i can add a Turbo to the sluggish diesel unit.If yes then how do i go about it.If this is a complex proposition, is a Engine swap recommended ?

Not worth it,man.
I know of one turbo lancer diesel project in Chennai. Frankly, if u need power, get a 87bhp petrol engine. If U want more, get the 175bhp MIVEC which is almost bolt-on.

The point is i want it to be diesel because i do quite a bit of traveling and hence i cant afford petrol.

If at all i plan to get the MIVEC, where can i get it from and what should be the approx price ?

Amey,

Turbocharging a 8 year old car is not worth. If you want performance swap with Mivec 175bhp engine.

Keep in mind, it takes anywhere from a minute to a few hours for a moderator to approve your posts.

FIP tuning is very tough and its tougher to find one person to do it.
Amey, if U want economy, get a petrol lancer engine, get the basic upgrades like filter, FFE and headers .Then, LPG/CNG it.
This is what I would do.

A Used engine must cost around 40ks.
Moreover, Diesel engines are treasured in the used engine business.So, u'll get a good deal on it unless the buyer sees ur odo.

Try to find a genuinely light-used lancer petrol engine that has been lifted off a totalled vehicle or the likes.And make sure they start it for U before U pay for it.Speak to any of the knowledgeable members like 'moralfibre' who arere in Pune.U'll get all the help u need.
