Replacing a 4D56 with D4BF in a JDM Pajero
« on: June 16, 2020, 05:13:04 PM »
Hello! I have a '92 SWB Pajero that has a cracked 4D56 block and a V5MT1 transmission. I am considering replacing the 4D56 with a brand-spankin' new D4BF. However, I'm not sure the engine mates up to my existing bell housing.

I've seen this thread (https://forum.adventuredrivendesign.com/index.php/topic,702.0.html) about putting one in a D50, but I already have the JDM transmission and that thread hasn't been updated in some time.

Does anyone have any insight on this? (I realize this is a Pajero, a JDM engine, and not widely known, but I figured I'd ask here!)

It's the same engine, it's just manufactured by a different company, the designs are licensed from Mitsubishi and produced by Hyundai, for your purposes, treat it like it's a 4d56 made by hyundai, because it is.
