any of the 71mm based 4x4 trans [pathfinder etc] can have the front case swaped to suit the engine.not the 81mm box used with the VG30-

LD20II[T] are sold with 4X4 in vans.

plenty of steel plate adaptors to suit LD28 to fit other makes like GM/CHEV and Rover--and bellhousing castings to suit toyota and borgewarner.

supose ford trans as well but not up to date with these.

these are australian mass production adaptors.
other specialist.plenty of small companies in NZ that export.

often see adaptors--mostly full cast kits in europe but not seen any listed on internet.
