1kz Hilux - to rebuild or not

Postby Hilux2004 on Mon, 11 Oct 2021 12:34 +0000

Hi all,
My Hilux needs a full rebuild. The glow plug broke and damaged the engine.
Just wanted to check if it is better to exchange my 1kzte engine from places like umr engins or get someone to rebuild it.

I would appreciate if anyone can recommend places in Brisbane where I can take the engine looked at. Thanks

It might be worth exploring whether you can fit a 1kd, being a later technology it could be worth a look.
I might be sending you down a rabbit hole but anyone else here know if it's possible?
Cheers Gipsy :D
