You can easily get one for 1 - 1.20 in kolkata .. ok condition.. baki 10 - 12 you can keep for name transfer regn etc.

my boss got an ikon 1.6 for 1.2L 6 months ago. Seemed like a killer deal.
40k worth of service later, not so much

Thanks for the suggestions, Amit.

What do you mean by "half engine"? You can just buy the block? Is it sold officially by Maruti at the price you quote? And is this inclusive of the engine swap charges? Won't head require any looking into if the block is changed? Am I not starting to sound like the noobs in the ICE section?

I don't think Zen/Esteem engines are available that way. It was only the Omni's engine which was sold like that.

Now, you know what it feels like to be one, with people suggesting cars from the Nano to the contessa & even the infamous sierra.

Old TUD5 engine are a real pain in the neck you never know what could go wrong. B&T would have a sierra experience again . On a positive side he can push the car a lot easier than the sierra.

Also i dont think a noisy unrefined car is the best car for ICE.

the TUD5s I've seen were all completely hassle free. drove a zen D for 1 lac kms. no engine work was ever needed. did need a lot of suspension work though

but not a good option as an ICE car. too noisy.

Good points. I hadn't realised that Zen-D was that noisy.

in 1.25L you should get a Alto 1.1 vxi. Search around. stay away from Maruti true value stores though.

i don't think you can get a new maruti engine at that price. i think he means getting an engine from a junked accidented car.

the 800cc engine that does duty in the M800 and the alto lx is available from factory at Rs40000 according to a poster at MASS. I dont think its the whole engine. I remember the advertisement saying that "your engine will be good as new"

But getting a cheap 2nd hand Alto is now more lucrative because of this offer.

How does the Bharat Stage of the car matter? BS I, BS II etc. Is that something I need to look out for?

Half engine includes the block, pistons, crankshafts connecting rods etc. yes it is sold very official like ILLUSIONS with the Maruti Authorised Service Station. It does not include the labor. But labor wont be very costly.

Head 95% of the time wont be problematic, this is what the service station people believe. i had once inquired for SX4 engine for our fellow T-Bhpian.

Believe me it will be a total new engine experience. You tell me which car u will opt for and i will ask the M.A.S.S people about the charges.

I dont think it matters for a used car but if it is BS II it should be an mpfi (which means more power than the carb counterpart)
