PostSubject: Super custom 2.8 3L 2wd auto engine broke    Mon May 20, 2013 5:54 pm

Hi my engine went pop yesterday :-(

The crank pulley sheared its taken the cambelt + other important bits with it. The local garage does not think that economically viable to fix and suggest looking for a replacement engine.

One area that i'm keen to consider is the possibility of upgrading, does anything else fit easily - how about later hi-ace engines?

Cheers

Ryan

Yes you can fit most anything in there, but it will also need all the electrics, loom, ecu and many other parts to work, do able but would it be financially worth it?

Its a nice camper conversion and I like it so its worth getting back on the road. est value 5000 GBP

I've had a look for the 3l engine and they go for about 900 "reconditioned" so it looks like that is the way forward. However at best i'll end up 25mpg @ 75mph again. So i'm wondering if their are any alternative options. e.g. d4d or 3ltr turbo from later hiaces?

That may be something to explore, 2.8 with a suitable head that will run with a turbo?

Still looking for an engine, i haven't found out about swaps anywhere online so guess i need another 2.8 though the worlds supply of them seems to have dried up over the last two months???
