long time no speak, sold my 93 passat(for 3.8K, not quite 7K but good as well), and the new kid totaled it(not due to his fault though) second week of owning it. what a loss...
Anyway i'm here to ask about swapping a 1.9TDI(or a 1.9TD) into a dodge raider (rebatched Mitsubishi Pajero, by dodge at the time when they were under chrisler corp).
I got me a sweet deal from some guy here in T.O. and now thinking of what to do with it. It has same engine as the late 80s dodge caravan which is a mitsubishi 6G72, a V6 3.0L, a 4x4(with 2H, 4H, 4L) and an auto with overdrive. an awsome engine but not too economical. Especially in the raider for some reason, it gets wors l/km than the caravan even though it is a short wheel base, must be the 4x4 or the trans gearing.
anyway i was searching high and low but it seems that no one has done this, and why?
this is a perfect rig for a VW diesel power. i know there are people out there that sell an adapter for a sidekick to swap in a TDI. but my problem is the lack of info on the raider transmission, especially the automatic. i could dive right in and do a 6 month engine swap deal but this is nonecence. So i was hoping someone here knows someone or has some info that can help me out.
willing to pay someone for an adapter plate for me, but not know of anyone who has done it.
by the way, happy holidays everyone.
