Engine Conversions


Here at hilux engine conversion sunshine coastPower Curve Performance we have taken on a vast range of engine conversions.  As time goes on we have tightened our range of engine conversions on offer.  Looking back at what we have achieved has included projects such as.

LS1 into a coaster bus… done that

Duramax PX Ranger… done that

1JZGTE into a Hilux… done that

SR20 into a Mercedes… done that 

RB30 into a EH wagon… done that

Duramax into a nissan patrol… done that

Automatic TI TD42 Nissan Patrol… done that

LS1 into hilux… done that

LS2 Into a Ford Ranger… Done that

Barra into Nissan Patrol… done that


As times change we have tightened out engine conversion projects.  We now offer LS. Duramax, Cummins or Barra conversions for Nissan and Toyota.  We are developing a custom ford ranger LS option that will be available at the end of 2019.

If you wish to have a conversion done outside of this range such as:

Darryl had a dream of driving his mates and his son to the Bathurst in a LS converted coaster bus.  With patience, time and generous budget Darryl and his crew made it to Bathurst and back in the one of a kind bus.

We have the ability to achieve this if you have an open budget and time frame to make a custom project.

Power Curve Performance, Sunshine Coast based business is a one stop shop for your conversion.  The team supply all the parts needed, from the engine to the tune.  All custom wiring and aftermarket computers are supplied in house.

Patrick our business owner does all of our wiring and he is highly skilled able to take on many challenges. His favorite job was wiring an American Chevy harness to a converted Duramax Nissan patrol, with 6 speed Allison, BMW heated seats and every electrical bell and whistle you could possibly imagine. Not to mention the harness was also cut in half and pre attempted prior to taking on the job. Our large range of tuning programs gives our customers the options they desire when choosing how we tune the project. Come in and have a chat to our team and we will design a job proposal to suit your goals. Power Curve really is the Sunshine Coasts one-stop dyno and performance destination.
