Getting the Wheeling Fever
have to add that now i'm running 32x11.5r15 maxxis mudders.
If you look carefully I made some cuts to have thos big meats on my sporty, the wheels are from Daihatsu Rocky.
Regarding loosing power I dont mind it because my diesel engige died and engine swap has been performed to have a 2.8 V6 GM engine.

Do you have pics of the V6 engine swap and what mods did you have to do to get it to work?

I see that you ousted the rear fender cladding on the drivers side but not on the passenger side?
Was this 4x4 battle wounds or a clearance issue on one side?
Bye the way, what size wheels are you running under your Sporty, Brand, diameter, width, Backspace? This is always one of my favorite questions.

I think that my Chevy Blazer (85)s-10 had the 2.8 v-6.....Lots of power----Potential for true dual exhaust here <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

How much weight are we adding with the v-6 setup??

Nice job on the body lift I see...Where did you get it from/how was it done??

Good Job and keep on smilin' <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />

Getting the Wheeling Fever
well replying all questions, yest it's the same s10 engine, mine came from a cherokee, some GM cars shared same engine, mine it's a carburated one but think that injected are better.

Rear fare felt down I'm trying to find the replacement.

Extra weight.... Don't know exaxtly but feal the sport more stable, don't know if is the new IRONMAN coils or have more weight.

the work: well i maintained same OEM radiator, all drivetrain inclusive the same transmission, just cut the bell housing and welded the GM one, also flywheel had to be modified.

To allign the fan with the radiator, had to put a 3 inches bodylift, I made it from metar pipes with roud metal stops using the rubber bushing original placed between chasis & cabin, the bolts has been changed completelly for a 7 inches due to original bolts are wedded to chasis making all difficult.

here are the pictures:

15x7.5 if I'm not wrong, back spacing I owe you that, have to take the measurements but are the OEM daihatsu Rocky ones

But I'm happy with the 32x11.5, the car is pretty stable.

with that lift (6 inches combining suspension & bl) easylly can run 34x9 MT's

So, Sorry for sounding stupid. You mated a chevy 4.3, which is my favorite small motor, I should'nt say small, since it is actually allmost a smallblock. to the drivtrain of a sportage? Yes i guess that waa a question. I swear, the first sign of that happening, i will go find one in the yard. Do tell.

More questions!! Is your rig auto or manual trans? Did you have to sacrifice the A/C? How difficult were the mods?
My rig has 268,000 miles on it and may soon need either a rebuild or modified replacement. I like the idea of a V6 conversion if I don't have to alter the rig too much.

It's a 2.8, not a vortec 4.3, it could be better, if I'm not wrong even smaller in size, but don't think that my sporty manual transmition can handle all that power without dying.

mine ispassing all the power from engine direct and off roading have to put the car on 4L 1st gear, if i put 2nd sporty will start running, the 4.3 it's my dream but had to change also the transmission & transfer to have more reduction and avoid to use the brake to contron the car.

I think that moderator should move all last post about the engine and discuss the same in other thread to debate about pros & cons and other possible engine swaps to not corrupt this topic <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />
