    G´day to all
    The 61 donnor is already on a Fj 60
    Regardind the turbo it´s from a HDJ 100 garrett gt2359v,it´s going to be actuated with a pressure Forge actuator i still don´t have more information becouse i haven´t started it, but by the information i have and the various cars i´ve seen working with VNT turbo it´s gonna be very good.Here in Portugal there are lot´s of 4x4 with diesel engines with VNT i will leave an example in a video of a Nissan Patrol 3.3td :
    YouTube - 3.3 TGV TURBO A 1.7 BAR

    As for the lockers the 61 didn´t have lockers but i have front and rear ARB with 4.11 dif ratios and a spare 4.57 .

    Why 12V... what are your plans on the rest of the 24V components that used on the 12Ht motor

    Looks like it will be a lot of fun when finished. Think you will have much room left under the hood?

    Hello
    Regardind the 24v components i will change all for 12v
    Regarding the space there´s enough to put a PWR Barrel 6"x8"

    I'm loving it and I hope to see some flex shots when you have it ready.

    I'm hoping your going to paint, clean and detail the motor too while you have so much access. It will match the beautiful frame!

    Cheers,

    John
