The vehicle was off the road for almost a year when I turned the Starion engine TBI to MPI. I had some problems with Megasquirt V3.25 with one of the local US help in getting the wiring and base program installation. That did not ever even get the car started once.
I went with HKS F-Con V Pro V3.24 and a Navigator Pro. That was more promising. The Pajero is now churning out 250 bhp at wheels on the dyno. I used a Nissan S20 distributor with some modifications and that gave crank signal. Pajero started up easily, ran rough and the tuner had to work to tune down the injectors as the injectors are 77lbs each. They came from a MPI Starion setup I got off Ebay some time back. Managed to get it running nicely now and just changed the radiator to an aluminum unit customized for the Pajero. Took out the 2 push fans I had in front of the radiator and changed a push fan from the Evolution. On normal local Singapore weather that’s either hot and wet or hotter and wetter, I am running about 90 deg C or about 199 deg F in a back to back traffic jam.
Added some bushwacker style oversized fender flares meant for the old Cherokee as they had identical body contours. Here are some pictures. I have a 7” lift kit meant for the Pajero Gen 1 or 2 with rear leaf springs that I might sell. Gave up on the installation as I just got started due to other commitments. Look out for it soon in the Buy and Sell Section.
