04 hilux engine swap or rebuild??

Unread post by rlilwell » September 1st, 2014, 9:19 am

Hey guys,
Last weekend I managed to blow the rings on my turbo'd 5L-E so the question is am I better off rebuilding this engine or doing a conversion? The gearbox on this one is about to drop 5th (as the are prone to do) and the clutch need replacing to either way i'll need a new box anyway.
What are people thoughts on possible conversions? I want to keep it manual and I do NOT want a commy engine. I was thinking a 1kzfe for ease (is it that easy??), 1pz (if i can find one) or 1hz if it will fit?? I have had bit of a look but I cant find much in the way of build treads for any of these so if anyone knows of any that would be extremely helpful!!!
Cheers for any help in advance
Unsure? Pin it!!
