    Toasty's '98 Montero Build

    I wish he made a shorter stub shaft so the Tcase does not need to go back that far.

    compression ratio 3.5 dohc

    9.1 or 9.5 if I recall My 3.8 DOHC built from a 2005 Galant engine with SR heads is about 11.7 or 12:1, It makes real good power.

    Pajero Mk2 SWB MIVEC Build

    Luckily wiring works for me. Heck you are more efficient with the Heavy metal and I can do details and wires all day long. Wish I could afford to move out there but I should have done that 20-30 years back if I was going to. I am creeping up on 70 so I do not see it in the cards. And about...

    Pajero Mk2 SWB MIVEC Build

    Still picking at the "bad hair" at the back of the engine. Closer but far from done. The corrugated tube to the left is the transmission and Tcase harness. The two to the right and center are the rear heater water feeds.

    Toasty's '98 Montero Build

    Are the tach signals single pulse/rev or 3 &4 respectively? Obviously I have yet to do said swap. Knowing me I would be looking around for a Hyundai V8 just so I can keep things all Mitsu.

    Stuck in 4x4

    Did you drive the vehicle after shifting out of 4wd? Or just shift it and note that the light was on?

    Pajero Mk2 SWB MIVEC Build

    I have ordered a front diff, kind of think I should have ordered the T case gears since I really do not want to pull that case out in the vehicle. Not only is that case huge but where it is over the middle crossmember and pretty snug against the body as well I doubt it will roll out of there. I...

    Pajero Mk2 SWB MIVEC Build

    Front LSD, Decisions, decisions. I intend to install a worm type LSD in this and since 95% of the mission is road work and near half the year is not pretty weather. Well snow can be pretty. At this time this has the factory plate type rear diff, that will need the re-stacking to get usable grip...

    Pajero Mk2 SWB MIVEC Build

    I am starting to get a handle on the rats nest. The wires now lay in place pretty well and soon it is time to start splicing again. One thing hidden under the mess is I have fabricated much neater coolant outlets for the rear heater, I will get decent shots of this in a few days.

    WTB 3.15 T case gears

    I posted this in the wanted section but question if it will get seen there. I apologize for the cross post where I know it does not belong. I am trying to find out if someone might have a set of 3.15 Tcase gears for a Gen 3 here in the states?

    315mm Front brake upgrade

    I don't know, I will need to look into that. I did find my original introduction posts from '06 when I first posted about the 3.8 in my SR so I expect other threads might be there. I am impressed there seems to be very little loss of data on that site. Just major loss of following.

    Pajero Mk2 SWB MIVEC Build

    It was time, It regurgitated it's transmission. And mated to the engine I will do some detail work on engine brackets and stuff. One of the main reasons to pull this was the wire harness was a tangled mess and I could not figure the issue out. Right after mating the transmission and...

    Not So Modest 2000 (Gen 2.5) Montero Build

    I am shopping for A 2.5, I have no interest in that coating. If you rig had original paint I would be interested.

    315mm Front brake upgrade

    My G1 setup. Rear, Nascar type alloy brake hats machined & drilled to fit the axle flange. Select rotors to suit. 11.75 to stupid large OD and a variety of thicknesses. The rear Calipers I used, I actually do not recall, they are kind of obscure as in Maserati Quatraport of something. They were...
