    1998 Montero Street Build

    I’ve often wondered about how much communication there is between the engine and’s not something that comes up very often but I guess it must else would a trans know when to shift at different rpm’s depending on load and driver demand? The trans must use...

    1998 Montero Street Build

    Has anyone tried fitting the 6G74 with a turbo? The 3000GT had twin turbos.....seems like a source for turbos and ECU’s might already exist. Looks like the 3000GT had a 3 liter 6G72.....not sure how similar the hardware would be... Found the donor...

    Is a 200k Gen 2 worth buying?

    For what it’s worth, if I ever sell mine, I’d probably be asking 3500 and I’ve got a 1998 with a rebuilt (original) motor that has 20k on it, 210k on the odometer, rebuilt front end, everything works, no CEL, it needs nothing but upgrades. Routine maintenance is current, has some minor body...

    99 Montero Gen 2.5 Fuel Efficiency Issue

    When I do this type of test I do it based on a full tank because I trust the pump shutoff more than my gas gauge. Fill it up until the trigger pops once. Zero out the trip odometer, drive as far as you want, then fill it up again to the first trigger pop. Odometer reading / gallons = mpg. I...

    2002 Mitsubishi Montero XLS 3.5L Engine Codes

    If you have no history on the age of your o2 sensors it is worth it to replace them. Diagnosing other related problems is easier if you can trust what they are telling you. If you do replace them make sure not to contaminate the sensor tip during installation.

    Exhaust recommendations?

    On this topic, I’m in the rust belt with a 98 and all I’ve ever needed to do was weld on some new hangers a few times and a new inlet pipe to the muffler. My whole system is still alive and well.

    MOOG ball joints....

    Yes. It is in the spindle and I still cant overcome it. The end of the stud appeared to have a allen head in it so I tried putting one in there and hand turning with a wrench but nope.....the inside of the stud that I thought was an allen head just stripped.

    MOOG ball joints....

    Not on my Montero but I figured I'd tap into the brains here and see what happens. I am installing new MOOG ball joints on a Volvo and they are the type that do not take a castle nut. The nuts that came with them have what look like messed up threads on them but they both had it and they are...
