I have a '95 Isuzu Pickup and a '94 Trooper. The troopers oil pump went a couple years ago and has been sitting ever since. I'd like to take the V6 out of the trooper and put it in the Pickup. I know that anything's possible but I was looking for maybe a little advice as to what to look out for or some pre-swap options I should be looking at.
My pickup is the 2.6L but it's just not enough power coming out of the 4 banger. When the trooper was running I could do donuts with it (I tried this in a small field and not on pavement, but you get the point, enough power to have fun with); that's what I'd like for the pickup. My ultimate plan is to have it supension lifted 4-6", full exhaust upgrade, tint, lights, 30"+ tires, powder coating the stock aluminum rims, and paint.
With this possible engine swap should I be swapping out the tranny, clutch system, or anything else with it? Again, any advice is well appreciated, thanks!
