What 3.1 wizard parts will go onto my 2.8 mu?

Postby blairreed » Wed Aug 19, 2015 4:19 pm

So I have just been offered a cheap wizard off a work mate looking at parting it out.

I have been told these parts should swap over can you please confirm?

CVs
Hubs
Diffs
front shocks
Anything else?

Also I should be able to put the torsion bar in to give me heavy duty torsion bars?
And the alternator and turbo will make good upgrades?

Anything else I can swap over?

Also if you want so cheap parts let me know what you are after and ill sort something out.

cv are the same axles are different, diffs are different and diff heads will fit but will be a different ratio to your mu if its manual, hubs will fit but brakes are bigger, front shocks will fit, torsion bars may be different, there are big spline and small spline and different lengths, heavy duty torsion bars dont flex as good as standard bars off road, alternator will fit, turbo will give you more power but wont last as long as the 2.8 turbo

Mu is a manual wizard is a auto. need to find out the ratio on my mu. guessing the wizard would be a higher ratio as its a bigger motor? it also has all the monsoon shields witch is kinda cool :) Would the window motors be the same? my ones on the way out.

2.8 manual mu should be 4.5, wizard will be 4.3, window regs should be the same

Sanding your knuckles before starting work can help. That way you cant skin them

I'm pretty confident that the torsion bars will be different...
