isuzu 1.5td 4ec1 engine conversion

19 Jun 2018 21:32 #193644 by Jefferies
Hi guys,

Just starting an engine conversion with an Isuzu 1.5TD engine and a GM R25-28 gearbox. I'll keep a log of progress on this thread. Any help/advice from anyone who has already done it would be really useful.

How do the torque and power specs compare to the Jimny?

Gearbox ratios?

I'm also thinking of this conversion so will follow your progress. Good luck!

Hey guys, bit of progress to report. I've finally realised that it is not feasible to fit the 1.5td isuzu into a jimny without lifting the suspension as a minimum. Even with a chopped sump the engine fouls on both the axle and the bonnet. Therefore I've decided to do a 2" suspension lift and a 2" body lift.

I've started making some aluminium spacers and I'm waiting for Jimnybits to get some more sleeve bolts in stock for the body lift.

I've bought some spring spacers and I'll make the damper relocation brackets after.

I modified the original sump on the isuzu engine just for mock up purposes as it was rusted through, this was in order to clear the tubular chassis cross member. Even with the mod i couldnt get the engine sat in the right place so i cut out the cross member and ill replace it with something else when the engine is in place. Fortunately I managed to buy a brand new sump for about £26 online.

Started the body lift today, I've only got it sat on the front and rear spacers at the moment and not the 4 in the middle. Still waiting for Jimnybits to get the sleeve bolts back in stock.
