    Default diesel questions

    the 91 pajero i just picked up has a diesel.

    b4 that diesel goes into my 91 LS, i want to inframe it

    where do u diesel-heads get parts?

    offshore ? if so whom?
    maybe some of our international members would be able to help, perhaps trades or???$

    i will be wanting a new head likely as not. odo shows 233000KM

    rods, mains, rings gaskets and seals.

    im guessing this engine has a denso rotary pump?

    any other details anyone might offer?

    im guessing this engine is rated at 85 hp?

    still in production somewhere in the world?

    i just towed home today, and dark it was when i got to the shop. i have opened the hood one time . thus no deep inspection yet

    Kiki pump, licensed from bosch.
    85mph is screaming even with 4.63's, install the 4.88 or 5.29's from the Pajero and do 65MPH tops. Get a pyrometer.

    i like this....

    so parts should be available from kiki or bosch, likely the injectors too. looks like the hyundai diesel is the same engine, so parts for the block should be commonly available....

    pyro; matter of course. especially if i fiddle with timing.

    65 mph should net me well over 20 mpg. yes?

    im keeping the 4.63's , i will have the 4.0 t case .

    HOW TORQUEY ARE THESE OFF ROAD?

    FELLAS, THE BUG HAS BIT
    i see online a cottage industry for performance upgrades for the pajero diesel.

    most of them standard diesel stuff, the major is the later roller rocker head.
    careful timing and all components set to the nibbon,

    boost pressure carefully regulated,
    double the hp is not likely but at least 50% improvement, and retain reliability.

    it seems there are a number of manual trans that will fit....hmmm

    this is going to be fun. now to find a reliable importer of parts.

    I did the roller rocker upgrade and a little extra wastegate preload, pretty good upgrade. I would get a pretty regular 25mpg overall, they don't do great on the highways here in AZ. Our speed limits are 65mph and 75mph.
