Default diahatsu diesel engine in 800

Well , here in hyderabad i have seen a good number (driven a few) of 800 with engines swapped for 1.0L Diahatsu turbo diesel engine. Heard that it gives mileage upto 30 kmpl and very good pickup(torque is too good)-- no exact specifications available though. But, the maintenance part is a big big headache. Seems like they will charge 15-20k in addition to your old engine swap . Gearbox also will be changed, do not know about alternator part though.
As for NVH, beyond 40k they go down and cabin is silent. When something goes wrong with engine, only a very good mechanic can save you.

Again, going by popular opinion, don't overburden your car .
Casting a doubt on the efficiency of the radiator too, while increasing the power.
A simple suggestion would be to find an Alto's engine (develops 45bhp in place of the 37bhp of the Maruti 800) and it's 5 speed gearbox.
There are quite a few of the 5-speed models of the Maruti 800 available in the used car market. One can be lucky enough to get hold of them while they are up for sale.

oh! no ,am not planning it on my car. On the other hand regarding suggestion of putting in a alto engine- it should be remembered that whoever wants to plonk in a diesel heart for 800 is looking for sheer economy and shelling out about 60-70k for used alto engine and then getting just 1-2kmpl more than their old 800 mileage is not what they want , i think.
Coming to this diesel thingy, if someone want to experiment, i suggest buy a pre 90-model 800 which may cost something like 30-35k and spend additional 20-25k for diesel engine and internal modifications etc.,.it MAY turn out to be a good experiment, only for a enthusiast though.
Well, am no expert in this field and my knowledge exhausts at this point.
