hi all
i have a 99 hilux with a tired 2.7 petrol
i have an opportunity at get a 015l turbo diesel with everything needed to do a swap
my question is are the chassis engine mount pedestal positions the same petrol and diesel
4b's are't side by side so i cant check it myself

thanks in advance

the chassi and engine mounts are pretty much consistent across the range in the same year model.

The biggest problems you will have is pretty much everything under the bonnet is on a different side and most of the plumbing is different.

If it is a electronic fuel injected original vehicle or new engine you will need the entire front harness and dash.

Petrol to diesel conversion in a post EFI vehicle is a substantial undertaking ....... what you realy need is an entire front cut.

I'd suggest a v6 engine conversion from commodore be a better option accept need engineers certificate (unless hilux comes with a v6 engine as std think some did one stage).

be a massive change over project to convert to diesel fuel lines tank all need to be replaced.

dellow or marks 4wd adaptors woudl have necessary engine mount kits etc

A complete wreck of a diesel version is required
Far easier conversion that way .
Little of the petrol version will be usefull
mounts ,engine , eng accessories , complete wiring loom ,fuel lines / tank , clutch and maybe g/box , rear diff ratio, front springs/ torsion bars ,dash board / gauge cluster
glow plug system , air cleaner assem. , exhaust etc etc etc

G/Day Michael, Why not rebuild the 2.7 petrol?..cheaper than going through all that exercise....My son inlaw has a 2.7lux that has done 580,000 km, never been touched!....In my opinion there the most reliable engine toyo has ever built...Forget about the the little extra fuel cost, you will never catch it up now.

Cheers Axle.

AND the 2.7 litre petrol will make more power than the turbo diesel ...... that is in factory form .... the rice rocket boys get silly amounts of power out of them.
