The models of Magna you will need to look at from oldest to youngest will be TE, TF, TH, TJ or TL

It will be a bit more involved than just the intake manifold. Sumps are different, drive plate, ignition system ALL the bracketry for alternator, power steering pump, air con compressor and engine mounts - you basically need to strip the Magna motor down to a bare long motor and swap EVERYTHING from the Paj engine to it.

BIG job but if you're handy on the spanners you shouldn't have too much trouble - just time consuming.

Yeah I have no problems doing the work for me it's great therapy and it's a huge difference in price I can pick up the Magna engine for between $240 to $600 everywhere I rang wanted between $1200 and $4000 for the Pajero versionso to save a fortune I'll do the work lol
