    Default Hilux D4D engine blown...replace?

    Hi fellow members,

    My old man runs a 2009 Hilux RB D4D on the farm. Car has about 400k km on and the engine is blown. Driven without water and overheated.

    Radiator and inter cooler recently replaced within last 6 months.

    We can either:
    1. Fit salvaged engine with 120k km for R 55k (comes with injectors etc)
    2. Recon engine for R 50k
    3. Buy new engine for R 100 000
    4. Buy a new (2nd hand) bakkie

    Is a rebuild or replacement at all worthwhile or penny wise pound foolish?

    Depends on what the general condition of vehicle is?
    If its good, a more expensive option like rebuilding would be worthwhile, if not, go for the cheapest?
