2016 Kia Soul Base manual 6 speed
Ja, probably easier to import the entire car in two pieces...the drivetrain...and the rest of the car. Or maybe the whole thing in one piece of you could get it thru customs/EPA...be interesting to look into that... I wonder if there is a loophole for blown engines...import the thing with a non-op engine...then do a complete rebuiild...The specs on that diesel say 192lb ft of torque, pretty nice. You'll just have to source the fuel tank and pump, lines, intake and exhaust, turbo, intercooler, radiator, accessory brackets, ecm, probably a transmission as it is likely to have different gear ratios etc.. and you will need to look for a wrecking yard outside of the US where they were offered with a diesel and hopefully you don't live in a state where this is a no no for emissions or inspection. Would be cool if it were a complete front cut off a car.
