Re: Which engine is for me?

Yes, and I doubt this will be helpful either, as we are all too opinionated. However, just on a point of anality: herre in SA, tbe 4.2 turbo diesel wagon was never sold officially. Any 4.2 TDI you find here is either a gray import or a modification. So here's mine: The 4.5 petrol engine is an incred...

Re: Engine Guard - Engine Overheating Alarm

Sorry Wayne, i did not mean to imply that the system will not work on a diesel, nor that it would not beenefit. But to my mind, the biggest killer of TDI engines is EGT's.

Re: Engine Guard - Engine Overheating Alarm

Thanks for your response Wayne.

I think this would be a great tool for the petrol engines. To my mind, diesels (or at least turbo diesels) need something more.

Re: Engine Guard - Engine Overheating Alarm

Welcome to the forum Wayne I have two questions for you: 1) What is the accuracy and measuring range of the temperature sender you use? 2) How does the oil pressure measurement on EGO1/3 work? Does it use a separate sender unit or does it plumb into the car's factory-installed oil pressure sender, a...

Re: New member from McArthur

Re: New member from McArthur

While I would love to introduce you to the best 4x4 there is...

Can't you win those 7" back by un-bolting the winch, the bar and the rear bumper and chucking them in the bin, and then re-bolting them when you get here?

Re: Second Battery System

Boats, if you mail me your photos I will load them directly to the thread? I must say, apart from the accident safety issue I quite like the idea of putting the batteries in the winch bar.

Re: 2004 Patrol Y61 4.8 GRX
