Now here's a strange one...


Engine swap to a turbo diesel. Custom engine and transmission management controllers. Rubicon transmission with 3k miles. Fully rebuilt engine. New tires. Upgraded intercooler. Roof rack.

It's good to drive, registered, needs a little finishing touches. I went back to college to finish my engineering degree and am looking for cash.

Gen 1, SWB owners, check this one out.

It's a 7 bolt 2.4 liter.

The parts are available internationally for about a total of $400-500 to swap this cleanly into a 2.6 carb powered montero/raider. This is one of the best swaps for the chassis, the diesel is great but this has long term repair and more dakar style operation. Also maintenance comes at a lower cost being a basic mighty max engine, the parts are readily available. The diesel is harder to repair if anything beyond a basic maintenance item happens. IE, alternator failure.

https://lascruces.craigslist.org/cto/d/mitsubishi-mighty-max/6212582065.html

I bet it could be had for around 1000, probably driven home, pulled and timing, etc done, then into the gen 1 for another 1000, putting you 2000 into a swap, while a typical diesel swap starts at around 2500-3500.

Adam, that truck also has the manual trans. Not that many want that, but that was the possible replacement for those who are die hard manual fans to have a good 5 speed that wasn't a km145 for a 4 cylinder.

Good catch Kevin, that trans would be perfect for anyone wanting to run one of the strongest bolt-on RWD manuals for a mitsu 4 cyl engine, I think they'll take 350+ hp, with hydro clutch. Combine it with a weird, known working combo; 6/7 bolt 1g/2g, whichever your engine is, FWD 2.0 turbo flywheel, 3g eclipse V6 5 speed clutch disc from exedy, or your flavor of brand and you've got a great wide block engine swap transmission.

Would be ideal for a 70's colt, arrow, or any gen mighty max, like that slick yellow one at MOD...or anything you might want to run a 2.4-2.6 (turbo or not), wide block mitsu engine in.... i'd use an old mighty max 2.4 with a 50 trim, probably on stock internals, (and i'd get away with it.) If I didn't already have a 2WD hydro 5 speed, and wasnt trying to cut down on extra stuff, I'd snatch that up for future swap fun.

Not a Montero, but there are probably enough Mitsu car fans here that it's worth posting.

How do these look? Talked to the seller and he said the brown one has a cracked head, but the white one has a good engine. And he has lots'o parts!
