I'm going to say no so you don't waist your time.

better off pulling an engine out of a HJ75 cruise of something.


Actually, I'd love to know how a falcon would go with a 3ltr turbo from a BT50

how close to original would a 4.5L 200kw Landcruiser V8TT Diesel engine look compared to the original and would it have to be inspected and how efficient would it be on fuel

i dont quite get what you mean. if you mean compared to the original engine fitted to a falcon, then it looks very different. its pretty big, and yes it would have to be inspected, and it would be pretty good on fuel seeing as it pushes a 2.5ton landcruiser no worries.

it would also cost about $25,000 or more to get one running in a falcon id reckon. (including cost of new engine)

They're gas aided, they run a little tank and slap in gas with air combined with diesel, more bag etc.
You still need diesel.

An E-series with a powerstroke in it would sound sweet! :lol:

Perhaps you could just fit a Toyota 1H-DT or Nissan TD42

Diesel in a falcon or converting the engine to run diesel - Of course you "could" do it. It just isn't worth it if you are looking for economy. The initial cost would far outweigh the savings for a very long time!

Best bet is to go a liquid gas injection setup on your current falcon, or sell that & get a BA, then get liquid gas injection on that. A Xr6T would go rather nice on liquid injection, you wouldn't need a bigger FMIC to run a fair bit more boost, as the gas would help cool the inlet charge.

Cheers

That's a 4cyl engine, and i don't think they come in turbo format in the earlier hilux. Surf version has same engine & could have turbo version. You can get after market kits for them, my g/f's bro fit one to his 98 hilux (I think it's 98), but his is the 3lt 4cyl. Rebuild kits are not cheap for those engines, but they do take a lot of abuse before they die! Toyota coaster mini busses might run the same basic engine.....
