Title: Gen 2 Engine Swaps - Knowledge Dump
Post by: engiekev on September 12, 2017, 05:13:50 AM
In trying to determine all the various engine swap possibilites for a Gen 2, I didn't find a single thread that compiled all the info for all the various swaps possible (unless I missed it!) Making this thread for a knowledge dump of resources and experiences on engine swaps into Gen 2 vehicles. 

General Engine Info

Montero Engines

3.0L 6G72 SOHC 12V 1991-1995
151 HP
174 ft-lbs
Pros:
-Cheap?
-OBDI
Cons:
-Least powerful engine offered in gen 2s
-6G72 block/heads/parts not interchangeable with 6G74


3.0L 6G72 SOHC 24V 1996-2000
177 HP
188 ft-lbs
Pros:
-24V improves power over 12V 3.0L
Cons:
-6G72 block/heads/parts not interchangeable with 6G74
-OBDII, more diagnostic sensors

3.5L 6G74 DOHC 95-96
213 HP
228 ft-lbs
Pros:
-Top-end power, and power potential
-DOHC cool factor  8)
-Parts interchangeability with 3000GT/Stealth engines (turbos!!)
Cons:
-Complexity, reliability, cost vs. SOHC
-Powerband for offroading (higher in RPM range than SOHC)
-OBDII with a multitude of diagnostic sensors

3.5L 6G74 SOHC 96+
200 HP
228 ft-lbs
Pros:
-Most desirable for 3.0L vehicles
-Simple and reliable
-Many applications for engine parts compatibility
-6G75 crank fits in block for stroker engine (would need new pistons?)
Cons:
-Less HP and top end than the DOHC 6g74 variant (and less cool factor!)

3.5L 6G74 2001-2003
200 HP
235 ft-lbs
Pros:
-Slightly more torque than Gen 2 3.5L SOHC
Cons:
-Wiring complexity

3.8L 6G75 2003-2006
215 HP
248 ft-lbs
Pros:
-Most powerful engine offered in Monteros
-6G75 crank fits into 6G74 block
Cons:
-ECU and TCU integration (? confirm) may necessitate swapping engine and transmission together, along with wiring harness for both systems. 
-Cluster from Gen 2 would need modification to work with CAN bus system, aftermarket tach/speedometer may be easier, or CAN bus display

Rumor that I have not yet been able to confirm, this is just intended to get the idea out there.    I will edit it if/when new data becomes available.

I have read that almost all Hyundai engines are physically compatible with the 6G7* bolt pattern/shaft.    That would include the 3.5 in Kia and Hyundai rwd SUVs,  the 4cyl engines (a turbo 4cyl should be pretty close to a Mitsu 3.5 in power while being lighter and possibly more fuel efficient when you're not using that power)..     Kia Sorento engines are plentiful,  and if Lambda engines from Hyundai Genesis are compatible that's a turbo 4 and a kick ass 3.8 v6 you can pick up relatively cheaply if you can work out the electronics.     Since both of those are available as crate motors from Hyundai the electronics should be documented too. 

Also,  thanks to that time Dodge was selling the Mitsu 3.0 alongside their own V6 in minivans 25+ years ago I believe a lot of more modern Chrysler/FCA/Jeep V6 engines might be pattern candidates.

3.8 6G75 Mivec will also swap in.. 263hp 265tq.. Headers and cams on that motor will bring it to about 300-320....  I am working on getting the electronics part to be a drop in for 94-2000 trucks.

I am working on a project for plug and play engine managment for 89-2000 trucks, that will allow you to drop in a motor and wiring harness and have full tuning, ODB II , Emissions monitors readiness and the ability to run any 6g74 /Sohc / Dohc / 6G75 and mivec and add knock control and also be able to use the variable intake manifold from one ECU and will plug in to the stock 94-2000 harnesses (Fed and cali)

I've got the 3.8l 6g75 MIVEC in my 1990 Mighty Max. I don't think your options get any better than that. Everything bolt up just fine. One side of the block lacks a few motor mount bosses but there are ways around that.

Wiring harness isn't that bad either. I opted to use the existing one with my car and just ran a few extra lines for other circuits like knock, temp, o2, etc. I just made a conversion harness that clipped into my existing one. The real key is using the correct ecu. 98-99 montero and sport guys are in luck. You are perfectly poised to do virtually any 74 or 75 swap.

The passenger side is missing the rear 3rd mounting boss completely. Wouldn't be so bad but the other two bolts are on the skill side. No good.

I think they are going to be testing the ECU in 98 truck in the next couple weeks. Once that is going they should be ready to go on sale. That will add knock control(for swaps and stock motors) and the intake manifold control for swaps of 6g75 motors.. Next will be the testing in the 94-96 rigs.

Yes you are in luck. You just need to populate a couple circuits on your ecu (chrome ecu does this for you) and run a few more leads to your engine bay for knock, MIVEC. Then drop in your motor and tune.

Title: Re: Gen 2 Engine Swaps - Knowledge Dump
Post by: Crumb on November 21, 2017, 04:41:26 PM
 Yes, you will need to swap the oil pan and pickup and flexplate. I realized you have a 97 and I think those had a weird injector so you may need to swap those as well. The info is here in the injector tech thread.

Post by: kalieracer on January 16, 2018, 08:44:23 AM
Just follow the same procedure as the mivec without the new ECU. It will still require the same swapping over stuff and tapping / enlarging some bolt holes.


I realize it is a 3.8, but any unique things regarding swapping in a 2004-08 Endeavor 3.8 (not the MIVEC) ?  I have a 98, california.

Post by: ChargerX3 on January 16, 2018, 05:11:38 PM
I canít recall at the moment but his block might have different mounting bosses from the MIVEC. May require less work for the motor mounts. Either way there are ways around that.

Other than that the installation will be similar and slightly easier.

A note for the original post, 94 SRs were also DOHC 6g74, but without OBD2.


1UZFE for the trans stuff from what I can gather that you need to do,
Swap Torque Converter
Swap Bellhousing
Swap Trans input shaft

Wiring will be the biggest hurdle to get to work with the Mitsu AW4 as they seem to be different enough electrically, that some just decided to swap the whole trans altogether to make it all work. Will also need new engine mounts of course.
Title: Re: Gen 2 Engine Swaps - Knowledge Dump
Post by: kalieracer on January 27, 2018, 09:13:49 AM
You will also need to work out the management situation / wiring harness.

A note for the original post, 94 SRs were also DOHC 6g74, but without OBD2. The trans has it's own computer, but needs some single inputs from the ECU.

Forgive me if this has been answered before, but:
I have a 2004 Montero sport with a good engine, and a terrible chassis. I'm looking to buy a gen 2.5 1998 montero with a blown engine. If I want to use the 2004 3.5l from my Montero sport...what am I up against as far as wiring changes if any?
Thanks in advance!

So my 6G72 12v finally gave up the ghost yesterday. 223k miles of reliability. Blew the head gasket and won't turn over now. Looking for swap ideas. How hard is it to go diesel? Say 4BT? I want something with torque not really worried about going fast. Or should I just find another 12v since their dirt cheap.
Title: Re: Gen 2 Engine Swaps - Knowledge Dump
Post by: Crumb on February 03, 2019, 09:36:29 AM
4BT is bigger than the engine bay, height and length. It's a fair amount of work to make it happen, not impossible. An easier cheaper diesel swap would be 4D56, takes less than a weekend so just do it.

Anyone in the U.S have an LS swap? Sounds generic but I think it would be sweet. I've been looking for an aluminum 5.3 for a while (the 6g74 and the l33 weigh the same but l33 has 100 more hp/tq). I would feel bad leaving the super select, but adapters are more money that the actual engine and trans.

There are a few guys with incomplete LS swaps, you know the typical engine in the bay but no progress for years after that. One guy on Pirate 4x4 did a really nice LS swap, custom width dana 60's and dual transfer cases. The problem was he got flamed and deleted all his pics and quit detailing his work, eventually he sold the thing on craigslist cheap and it never resurfaced.

That is a bummer, that sounds like a sweet build, Im debating whether i should by a wrecked tahoe and live with the iron 5.3 and upgrade the suspension to support the weight of course, or hold out for a much more expensive L33. I have read up on the guy in australia that did it with a 5.7 ls1 and all he really did structurally was shift the passenger side motor mount a few inches and some radiator mounting stuff, I'm sure it will end up being more than that. Dana 60s and 40s would be heaven  ;D

I have read that the 6g74 block weighs only 105 pounds, and the 5.3 iron block weighs 218, then factor in the heads and pistons and everything else, its a decent amount heavier, and i am sure the 4l60e and transfer case weigh more than the original but that is more in the center of the truck so its minimal.

A completely dressed-as-factory 5.3 with every accessory, full harness and ecu is quoted at 580lbs pretty much everywhere on the internets.  6g7s vary wildly, but i'm seeing numbers in the 340s as un-dressed longblocks.

I'd be shocked if there was more than 100lbs difference.  All i'm saying is that i personally wouldn't bother modifying a suspension for that reason.  Do it for offroading stuff, chances are the bars will be heavier anyways.  ;)

Found a 6G72 12v from engine world for 750$. 6 month warranty, motor has less than 50k miles. He said the only thing different from USDM 6g72 12v to the JDM version is the intake manifold. Anyone know have any knowledge on JDM 6g72 montero motors?

 Damnit, i just spent $700 on a V8 to replace my blown 12v 6G72.

Sensing a bit of sarcasm? Not sure why I thought this was the place for information. Guess i'll look elsewhere for info and parts.

Surprised you couldn't find an early 6g72 SOHC. They are all around me here.
