Re: Question on TD42 'kettle' issue

Oh man this a subject that can keep you busy and cost you lots of money if you have this problem. The most important things have already been mentiond, but in my experience these are the main things to look at. 1. Tuning (spesifically the turbo engines). A bad tune will make tour engine run very hot...

Re: TD42t EGR+PCV line.

One thing to remember, the more boost you run on, the more blow-by you will have (its just physics). So I have seen TD42 engines with 0,4 bar boost with almost zero blow-by and then looking at my engine running 1,4 bar boost with a reasonable blow-by. My intercooler and boost system will have oil in...

Re: TD42t EGR+PCV line.

Look, if you have a egr system that is not blanked off and you dont want to remove it, I will recommend a catch can as your intake will look like above pic. Soot + oil vapour = tar

Re: TD42t EGR+PCV line.

Russ, as Tinus said, your EGR system is not working so there is no danger of any exhaust gas getting back into your intake. Im not stressed at all about the oil vapour going through your intercooler and into the engine. It cant do any damage or brock your intercooler. I had a TD42ti once with over 5...

Re: Dino day - Saturday 5 October

Dont forget the 11mm pump...... it really makes better power than the 10mm pumps and its still early days in terms of testing.
We are doing some tests on JP's Patrol and my own and I recon we can reach 140kw on the wheels.

Re: Dino day - Saturday 5 October

Looks like you guys had a great dyno day! Wish I could make it, but had to attend my daughter's dancing consert. So coming back to Peter's combined dyno sheet with all the TD42's combined, I will try to explain what I think is going on there. The NA TD42 is the standard graph for a TD42. This is a c...
