Mint, thought about using 3.5 pajero intake/radiator plumbing since it's already a north south engine?

Should go hard!

Also do you have any info on that engine? Like the year etc?

Reason I ask is my 3.5 runs out of puff at about 5500 rpm yet the rev limiter is at somewhere just over 7000. The cams from the engine you have might be different and might make power higher in the rpm range which I'd like, and drop straight in. I'm tight so don't want to go down the road of aftermarket cams :roll:

Diamante and magna s are 4 cam 2.5 and 3.5

No don't like how the manifold sits and won't have room with the s/c in relation to the throttle body,

I'm not sure rpm limit on the diamante this engine came from is 8500

I'd say it is the cams and ecu tune, but also I found Mitzi's exhaust systems are very restrictive as well, have ya looked at that aspect?

Cool thanks, will do more research into changing to thos cams. Read a lot on ozzy forums and they always talk about changing cams to Magna/diamanté cams but a lot of what they deal with is sohc and I'm unsure what they are referring to, different spec cars sold to different country's etc.

Yep I've got a good exhaust, made some headers and a full 3" exhaust, also have a k&n air filter and snorkel so I'd say it's breathing as well as it can.

In the mud the drop in power isn't noticeable, revs straight out to rev limit but on the road, under proper load it feels really flat after 5500ish. Noticeable torque drop off.

Thanks for your input, I'll keep researching and stop polluting your build thread! :lol:

yeah it'll defo be the cams and ecu tune then, probably tuned for low down torque when fitted to the pajero vs top end hp in the diamante etc
