nice truck, I had no idea that you had gotten hit, how is an 87 younger than an 86? or it is another vehicle you are referring to?

Those tires look sick, and the car looks very clean, especially for being 23 years old!
thanks! it's actually in really good shape for how old it is. it's never been hit, have less than 1% body rust, and it's in my favorite color.

I like your style. Also, regarding motor swaps I found this information on a goodgle search, http://www.carparts21.com/engine-drivetrain/internal-engine-parts/how-feasible-is-it-to-swap-a-6g72-engine-in-a-91-montero-with-a-completely-different-motor-partsmoney-wise/

"Well the problem is the Montero’s V6 is a really small motor
The engine bay on them is also pretty limiting.

Your best bet would be to find a V6 from another Mitsubishi since most Mitsubishi cars share the same harness/base parts for their motors.

I do know that the 4g63 bolts right up to a Montero.

That would be a 4cylinder however if you could find some wrecked GSX Eclipse or TSI Talon or RS Turbo Laser and pull the motor, you’d have a turbocharged 4cylinder getting good gas mileage and putting out around 250 horsepower with a little bit of tuning."
