Re: Narrow or wide

Ja this is one of those topics that can run for weeks. Everyone has their opinion and liking and thats why skinnies and fatties will both always be for sale. Im not going to hide the fact that I prefer fat tyres and they have served me well to date. Did the whole Botswana in March and even towed a v...

Re: Nissan Thermostat

Nope, looks good. The old one is a non Nissan thermostat I have completely removed mine. Will this cause any major problems? If so where is best (cheapest) place to get a new one? Nissan Patrol Petrol 1998, 4.5 GRX Yes, removing the thermostat entirely can cause the waterpump to cavitate. There nee...

Re: 4.8L Performance upgrade options

Oh yes, did a pre dyno on a NA 4.5 and it only produces 88kw and 250Nm on the wheels. Its not in tip top shape, but gives a good idea on how the peteol engine is so different from the diesel engine on the power curve

Re: 4.8L Performance upgrade options

All are TD42 turbo motors, they just made a mistake on the one dyno sheet stating its a 4.5 Julian, the one producing 180kw is a true reading. Its a very powerfull beast and has severely modified everything. The quick dropoff in power is because of the governer that was set to 3,800rpm initially so ...

Re: 4.8L Performance upgrade options

Ok so here are a cpuple of dyno runs from verious TD42's. All were done in 4th gear. I think all have a pre and post run. The reason why I am not sure how they get their torque figure is because comparing two vehicles, the one makes 110kw and 350Nm at one stage where another makes 120kw and 557Nm......

Re: 4.8L Performance upgrade options

The Dyno only measures torque Within the software there is the ability to calculate the torque based on KW reading. So obviously you have losses between the motor and the wheels on the dyno which effect the reading. Hence the calculation factor to compensate for those losses. Using the factory spec...
