Hi from New Zealand.
I have a 1996 250T Auto and have cooked my EJ25. Please advise what is my best option to re power. Should I just get another EJ25 or is there a better option that will bolt in without loom, computer, diff issues.
I am totally confused about this and would really appreciate help.
Kia Ora !
Jim

your models vary from over here.

is it a turbo or non-turbo?

over here for non-turbo stuff the EJ25 is the biggest EJ motor they make that's a direct plug and play swap. don't think you got anything bigger, so EJ25 is the best you can get.

what do you mean by "cooked". if you're talking about a head gasket issue your best bet is just to repair it. much better to have a properly fixed engine then buy another EJ25 with known headgasket issues. or, plan on replacing the one you get.

Hi,
according to the mechanic the motor is damaged more than just a head gasket repair. Its a non turbo.
Thanks so much for your help.

Do you recommend that I replace the head gaskets on the replacement head before I install it?
That would be quite expensive
thanks again.
