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 .

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
