1982 Lada Niva with a Peugeot diesel engine swap

Recommended Posts

I called around to find me a mockup engine for the lada niva, i don't want to take it apart before i have a unit to install. They are hard to find and pricey, not too many nivas are taking apart. I find and bought this block and cylinder head, this engine is meanly for taking dimensions. Also unexpected find was this Gearbox, is from a Ford sierra cosworth 4x4. The box was at a good price and they are know to take lots of power, i did measure it and is way too long to be used in my niva. Maybe for a future project.

Today i finish disassembling the parts car, front end come off easy, supported the body with my engine crane. Then i remove the carpet insulation, wiring, fuel tank, lines, rear axle. Then came the dirty job of cutting apart the body. Anybody that has deal with that knows the struggles, unibody cars have 3-4 even more sheets of steel in every corner. It was a real workout to chop it up and move it by myself, my injured back is at the point where i can do anything i want, but i'm careful. What a struggle for an engine.
