What does he mean by ready made ? Is it an old engine rebuilt or a brand new one ready to be installed ? Brand new ones should be available anywhere.

Thank dadu for the link

i called up tata dealers(Bangalore) and spoke to them,since my engine is a non turbo (1994 seirra) asked the dealer if could replace with turbo the dealer said that it is not possible because the gear ratios are different for turbos so i should change the transmission and the diff's.

guru's is this true

Engines can be swapped in markets from coimbatore and mettupalayam. But no long term guarantee, but if you meant from any good workshop, then you can go ahead.

I guess you are talking about the recon units. I know of a pretty big company that does engine reconditioning for TATA ( could be Ashok Leyland ) commercial vehicles. All the engines that are replaced under warranty are sent here. They are rebuilt here and sent back ( check this out!!! ) to the assembly line for use in new vehicles!!!

What your source might have told you about is the big time engine rebuilders like kuttukaran and popular here who might have rebuilt engine in stock.

The Jaya diesel for Amby was a unique engine IIRC. It was not a rebuild but ground up design and built by Jayem.
