Umm what? Why on earth would you want to do that?! The TB42 engines are reliable, has more torque and would probably be better on fuel... Just seems to be pointless to me..

Mq has a l32? And the one I'm looking at is rooted so just seeing what options are available, I thought it was a good alternative as I have seen many of these done :/

Lucas has the right idea. My scenario was best case out of the petrol engines in comparison the the commo engine.. I can just see headaches and a budget blowout... If they've been done many times before just buy one of those.. you've save a heap of coin and at least you'll get an idea on what they're like. I can see why people do the v6 commo conversion with other cars... just can't see why you would do it with this..

Yeah your right, decided against it, who wants to buy a car that needs a new engine, not worth the headache.

Anyway, decided to keep saving so I can get a hilux :D
