@boots4 's 4BTJ60 is one of the best technical references on this site for 4BT conversions.
@J Mack 's 4BTJ55 is another one of the best technical references on this site for 4BT conversions.
My 4BTJ60 build is an attempt to achieve that level of greatness :lol:

Mitsubishi 6D31-0AT into 60 for your consideration. A-A intercooled Cummins VGT, NV4500, and lots of sloppy...

Differs from the 4d34 engines, being a 5 liter, not a 5.9 that a 6D34 would be.

Don't have a link to a build thread yet but I have a 2H and H55f in my 71 FJ40. If anybody needs specific info about doing a swap like it, I am happy to help answer questions if I can.

Definitely learned by doing this myself that some important parts of the information circulating about this particular swap is just speculation and misinformation from people who have not done it.

The link to my build thread is in my signature line. I rebuilt a 78’ FJ45 and dropped a 12HT into it during the process. I also converted it from RHD to LHD.
