I am sure it fits VICTA engine perfectly . that's what my Mechanic was suggesting me initially.
But while doing any engine swap with Sierra, be aware the documentation issues.
eventhough you manage to endorse engine number etc, in document it is old vehicle.
So Insurance , Fitness etc may be troublesome.
Just my opinion ,
Ok here goes.
Both victa and turbo engine are 95% same
Victa doesnt have a inter cooler !!
victa has a different fuel pump that is designed to give some additional torque.
Sumo victa torque is 220nm
where as sierra turbo's torque is 190nm.
same has 90 ps of power . not yet confirmed , but remember reading them some where.
Victa , have a single drive belt where as sierra has 2 and get loosen like mine(hope not always , just got settled with hope so correct belt .)
so the best shot for the power is 2.2 dicor , and even if documentation is a problem , hmm engine number can be stamped and head has the tata symbol , so no worries. !
