Toyota Unser with SR20DET

Pic 1: Take your run of the mill Toyota Unser ...

Toyota Unser is the Malaysian equivalent of the Toyota Kijang in Indonesia. It is a practical low-cost MPV built on a ladder frame chassis based off a truck. Uhmm ... ok lets not elaborate too much on that. LOL :D

So what if you like the Toyota Unser due to it's usability and relatively cheap price BUT dreads the low output and lazy 1.8-litre EFI 7K-E 4-cylinder engine?

Hmmmm.....nothing much on the Toyota engine barn that strikes your fancy? Why not check out what Nissan has to offer? This Toyota Unser owner decided to scour the Nissan stable for a suitable engine and decided on the SR20DET red top.

Pic 2: ... and plonk in a SR20DET

The 7K-E only produces 94hp and 155Nm of torque. Pretty lame for a people mover eh? The SR20DET will double that capability as it pumps out 206hp and 274Nm of torque. And that is at factory specifications; a little tweak here and there and the power level will go up pretty easily. Now we are talking proper power for a people mover!

If you're wondering more about the conversion, custom engine mounts will definitly have to be fabricated. The transmission will be from the SR20DET with its propeller shaft mated to the stock Toyota Unser propeller shaft. Durability of it could be questionable though. It will have to be road tested to guage that account.

So there you go. I find this transplant mighty interesting. :)

Pic 3: Instant power!!

  5. It will be shocking if youre doing 200km/h and suddenly u see this UNSER behind ur tail flashing and flashing you.

    How embarassing will it be when u have to move over.

    This will absolutely be a ALPHARD/VELLFIRE/ELGRAND killer. hahahhaa

  7. I must be a lame driver as I find my unser has plenty of power. But in Sabah we have no roads to open her up so how should I know.
