Hey ragster! That's nice to know. Do you sell these engines?
It'd be better if you can give an introduction of yourself in the INTRODUCTION thread.

The whole gearbox assembly has to be moved back almost 6 inches. The battery has to be relocated and the tosion bar has to be upgraded. Radiator has to be changed, position of intercooler will change and new beds have to fabricated and welded on to the frame.
Can be done at a really good workshop, by someone who has commonsense. Would be easier to buy a 2nd hand Dicor or fit a Pajero 2.8 engine into the bay. i went through this whole thought process before I decided to just buy a DICOR.

Thanks mate. You really mean to say that a Pajero 2.8 powerplant can be just lowered into the engine bay of a safari and mated with the existing gearbox without any major job?

Oh no! The Pajero engine would be as much work but would be a whole lot more driveable!
