Oh and buy my diesel yota.
I don't think it's sluggish, just not great for hardcore crawling. well actually, crawling isn't bad, but when you stab it to bump up something it just doesn't want to go as good as I'd like. there was also a few time it would just stall against the converter when somewhat bound.to be fair, the exhaust was smashed quickly and I never got under there to look at how bad it was.

Did you get some books in the mail? I just want to make sure I have the right address before I send out that ecu. I went to 3 places trying to get flat rate boxes. Apparently you need power to let people grab boxes off of a shelf

You mentioned no speedo with the samurai case.... does the 2.0 pull the signal for the timing advance from the speedometer similar to the 1.6?

Here is a link where someone build an adapter to put a 23spline toyota case behind the volvo trans: https://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/suzu...ml#post8978532

I would think it could be adapted for the Montero trans as well, maybe easier.
I have thought about making a track kick to Toyota case adapter. It really wouldn't be terribly hard, time is the biggest issue for me.

I think a 5 speed trans is mandatory behind a 4 banger unless your only rock crawling, but you may like the 3 speed/6.5:1/7/17 combo

I know you've said before you're skeptical of Keith's zuk/Toyota and zuk/D300 doublers, but I and many other guys can assure you he builds a legit product that works great. if you were on Facebook you could see for yourself lol.
I may just try the auto and 6.xx gears and see how it works. The zuk 5spd I have is blown up and finding another one is probably next to impossible. That and unsupported welded coupler just doesn't sit well with me. I'd much rather just go to a Toyota trans and tcases.

Not to mention the Toyota first gear is lower (3.65 vs 3.95) and the tcase is also lower (1.8 vs 2.28) which doesn't sound like much until you multiply it out and get 221:1 vs 303:1.

I do agree that the 5spd is probably better with a 4cyl though.

I would like to go to toy cases if I go 60s. I emailed trail Tough, and I could go back to a 5 spd using a Toyota w56, but I would have to find some unicorn 98 sport bellhousing. Or convert to cable.

So 8 figured just switch to 6.4s or 6.5s and go 7.17s.

I realize that I could do any number of round 6 tcases or doublers. The reason for wanting to use Toyota cases is I have a pair of duals with 23 spline 4.7 rear, and chromo outputs.

He did it and was able to run a d300 behind it. It would also open up the door for other tcase options.

Are you still interested in my 4:1 case?

Not too far off what I pictured.

I was thinking shorten the frame a little. Either move the drivetrain back or front end forward in the same process.

Maybe a little more lift and make it be able to fit 35-37s but not look completely retarded on the 32s.

Minimal everything. No dash, ect.

Overall it was a great trip. Sideshit (dubbed this trip) was a little bit of a flop. It was definitely making everyone laugh the whole time, but I fucked both cv's pretty quickly. I think I'm still over extending them. Wilson said the tire was turned extremely sharp the first time. So steering stops might help.

The bushing was siezed to the shaft when I went to change it, which means the spindle is probably fucked as well.

Exhaust is pretty fucked, gas tank is pretty fucked, pass rear coil fell out twice , gearing was night and day better than stock, but not near enough.

Whats wierd though is the intermediate shaft wasn't vibrating on the way out

Finished? No, but either way, it's going to Fordyce this weekend. I need to shorten a drives haft for the front and I'd like to build some type of skid plate for the front diff since the cover is aluminum.

Just been crazy busy trying to get the place ready for a kids party.
