    Hi everyone, I’m planning on swapping out the engine on my Trooper at some point in the future. For right now I want to prepare for the job.

    1990 Isuzu pu 4x4 engine swap 4ze1, 5 speed manual transmission. Locked up crank. Lost head gasket was dumb and didn't check the bottom end. Do I try to find a 4ze1 block or b4 diesel, 3800v6 or 3.1L v6? I may have rebuildable 3.1L or 3800. They have not been opened up yet.

    I’ve been thinking about taking on my first engine replacement for my trooper. I was wondering if there are any suggestions on whether I should just get another 3.5l v6 trooper engine or go another route? What are some other engines that won’t break the bank and are easier to swap? The car has...

    There's somebody in my area selling a trooper with a blown transmission and good engine (and other stuff) for $900. My troopers 3.5 burns oil pretty badly (about 1 quart every 500 miles, give or take). From the pictures of the one for sale, it appears to be have an engine with the screw in pcv...

    I was planning on doing a radio and speaker upgrade write-up with photos. Nope. Clickity-Clack life gives you a whack! I've known that these Isuzu engines can get a bit tap-tap happy and it's fairly normal. Mine however may have crossed over a sound barrier into severe trouble. First batch of...
