From what I can find out online the 2 litre petrol had either a 4.88 or 5.13 diff fitted, the Rodeo that the engine came out of had 4.55 and this is revving a lot higher than that was at 100kmh.

the mythical4.8diffs
Can you please post a pic of the diffs and the firewall plate please.
If they are the 12/10 bolt isuzu diffs then you have given everyone a source for these in Aus and Europe at least
I suspect te 5.1 wont be a full size isuzu

I'll try to get a photo tonight, I know the rear diff is huge and always looked like it was over engineered for such a small motor

Gazza who installed the snorkel on your mellow yellow frontera I have the same type to install on the 96 wizard I bought of muvit just haven't got round to doing it yet.
Bit different set up to my airflow snorkel on my Mu I installed.

Looks like a dana 44 diff with the back plate is removable in the photo so it could be a 5.3 diff ratio after all.
Was it a big job installing the snorkel the one I got had no template with it but it don't look to hard to install on the wizard.

Yeah Turnturn I worked that was one of the codes I found. Stardog mine had no template either, I held the snorkel up to the guard and roughly worked it out and got it right first time.
