Toyota engine meisters, and all-round good eggs, Coventry-based, DEE Ltd has added to their range of crate engines for kitcar use with the launch of the three-cylinder D-1KR-FE as normally found nestling under the bonnets of Aygo, iQ and Yaris.

Delivering 68bhp ‘out-of-the-box’ the diminutive units will be ideal for a whole raft of kitcar applications, being small, light and eminently tuneable, while a dry sump and a bellhousing conversion to hook it up to the ubiquitous Ford Type 9 gearbox are also available from DEE Ltd.
