You want a 1600 8v vitara engine, the Sj413 gearbox and a conversion plate to bolt the 2 2gether.

Engine mounts need modifing a little.

It isnt that hard to convert them, me and a mate done it for the first time just before christmas, was all done in a day!

Now the sj is a real monster!!

Would have done it sooner if i had have known how simple it was and the difference it makes!.

you wont

just remember that sj's are more agile whereas discos depend on power to drag their weight through everything.

think of it as a mountain goat versus an elephant
