Hi and question?

Post by Tonyj on Mon May 08, 2017 11:19 pm

Hi everyone, new to the site, currently own 2 hijet's, a blue 1.3 standard one and the A Team van Smile engine swaps is my topic up for discussion atm, I've done a quick search and nothings come up with this particular swap, I know the hijet has a tilted engine ( I'm no mechanic) just an avid tinkerer, any chance the 1.3 turbo engine from a yrv would be a possible swap? Same block? Engine positioning? Etc no idea? Apologies if I'm breaching etuquite by saying hi and asking a question in the same post by the way.

No problem saying hi and asking a question, in answer to your question anything is possible...if you have the time and money! As for specifics...no idea but welcome. I would change your username to something other than your email address though.

Welcome Tony. Where abouts in Cornwall are you? Bude has been my favourite place since childhood. 

The YRV engine is totally different. It is a Toyota chain drive camshaft engine the predecessor to the VVTI Engine. As Scotia says, the 1600 engine with 94bhp or the 1500 with 90bhp is the most straightforward swap. But even with them  it is quite a bit of work. I have several 1600 engines and could be persuaded to part with one.

Cheers for the warm welcome Smile time is the main issue as i use it for my daily driver works van, although it gets called many other things Smile so the yrv is definitely out then, I would probably go for the 1600 tbh as the main issue currently is the lack of power in the slightest breeze or incline with a boot full of tools, so the extra torque would be a welcome addition, I've had a brief read about the 1.6 conversion, and it doesn't seem too helkish. Woodie I lived in bude for about a year after moving down here, currently living in wadebridge tho, Cornwall is such a beautiful place, I love it down here.
