IIRC the bakkie still uses that A-series engine originally designed by Austin, which clearly has some limitations of an older project. Would you ever consider an engine swap?

BTW what about the Diesel scene there in SA? I see lots of people there adapt Ford Essex V6 and a variety of V8 engines into nearly everything back there, but I don't find too many references of Diesel swaps (except for a Landcruiser 79 with a Cummins ISF2.8 replacing the 1HZ).
