A good place to look is jeffdanielsjeeps.com he specializes in 4bts. The motor comes with either a ford or gm adapter and then you need to take another adapter off that to your ax15. On mine I have the ford adapter and ford bellhousing then an adapter from the ford bellhousing to the ax15

There is a good amount of info here: anyone here have a diesel ?

I posted a novak link to the borg warner transmission that was mated to the 4BT i was looking at, I am unsure of what other trannys can mate up to a 4BT but Novak has the info you need.

Swap to a 4BT diesel in the future? Most likely.

Some of the engines come with dodge adapters and are mated to a dodge 47rh.
