Hi Tinus,

Yes, TNT in Germiston fitted a 76mm pipe from the Turbo, all the way out the back. Brilliant job done by them for R3500...

Re: 2004 Patrol 4.8 GRX SUV

So after the changes, the Patrol went OK-ish, but not what one would expect after all the changes. So I took it in for a Dyno-tune, and these are the figures: before vs after in NM RPM - BEFORE - AFTER 1500 - 192.3 - 306.3 NM 2000 - 293.2 - 362.0 NM 2500 - 277.0 - 342.7 NM 3000 - 245.8 - 300.3 NM 35...

Re: 2004 Patrol 4.8 GRX SUV

Jorrie, Die 3.0 Di Patrol is nie eintlik my persoonlike dag tot dag voertuig nie, dis my Safari (besigheids) voertuig. My dag tot dag voertuig is die Pathfinder 2.5di LE. Ek hou ook nie eintlik daarvan om die voertuig te gebruik op hindernis roetes soos ons Saterdag daar in die sand en dongas gedoen...

Re: My Survey - Your Suspension Kit

I took my current Patrol (Y61) there just more than a year ago and they raised the suspension by 60mm front /65mm rear and also 2mm thicker wire coils. The cost was about R3500 IIRC and I am very happy with the result.

Re: What tyre and tyre rotation

But there is a much easier solution. Have 2 Patrols. One with AT's and 1 with MT's.... :rolling: :rolling: You laugh, at one stage (just after I retired) I was sitting with 3 Nissan 4x4s. I had a Terrano, a Y60 Patrol (4.2i GLX - Grey import from the UK) and a Pathfinder.... Fortunately I came to m...

Re: What tyre and tyre rotation

1. I'm confronted with two problems. The first is, do I get MT or AT? I solved that dilemma by getting a second set of rims and tyres; one set with Muds and a second set with ATRs. At the same time, I went from 265/70 x 16s to 265/70 x 17s on both sets on my Patrol. Each set has 5 rims and tyres. B...

Re: What tyre and tyre rotation

1) Hoe meer rubber die pad raak, hoe minder druk is daar omdat die gewig van die voertuig oor 'n groter area versprei word. Die twee kanseleer mekaar presies uit. Dis iets wat gepuzzle het vir baie jare, nouer bande geen meer PSI drukking op die teer, Fat Takkies gee minder. Dis logies. Jou voertui...
