Hi there. Thanks for some really great content.
I reside in New Zealand and own a 2022 hijet dump truck. It is my daily driver .
Obviously, like the thousands out there, I see the potential to upgrade and would like some good advice.
I’m exploring the possibility of swapping the standard kfve motor with a kfdet ( hijet van) motor to improve the to torque and highway driving ability.
So, I’d like to know if anyone has done such a conversion and would like to know what is involved .
Specifically , does it need an ecu and fuel pump change. Will I be able to use the existing harness. If I replace the ecu will it be a simple plug into my existing harness and will all my standard functions be maintained. I’m no tech fundi and don’t quite know whether the ecu influences the standard safety features e.g. lane assist and collision avoidance.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Any hardware changes I should be able to take care of
