This is a news to me. AFAIK
, below is the procedure for engine swap
- Current engine should be declared "un-repairable / not usable" by the OE Case 1: (Vehicle / Engine is still in production)
- New engine of same spec will be issued by OE, along with necessary documents
- Dealers fix the engine in vehicle
- Pollution test to be done at Govt authorized pollution check centres
- RC to be endorsed with new engine number Case 2: (Vehicle / Engine is out of production)
- New engine of similar spec (variation in cc, same or latest emission level, Forced induction, etc. But no change in fuel type) issued by OE along with proper documents
- Necessary changes in Chassis (if required) to be done by authorized dealers and approved by OE
- Pollution check (same as Case 1)
- Vehicle fitness to be checked by RTO (if required and based on level of changes in Chassis / body and recommendation by OE)
- RC endorsement for above mentioned changes
For both the cases, report (about current engine condition) to be issued by dealers and only against the same new engine will be issued by OE. In your case if Sierra engine is still under production or old stock exists, TATA cannot issue a Safari engine.
Please correct me if I am wrong.
