Re: 4.8L Performance upgrade options

For sure. Done right it shouldn’t result in major issues. But Will a converted motor do 300 000kms? I guess we don’t know yet, but I’m leaning towards no, but all conjecture at this point. Don’t get me wrong though, I would kill to be able to do a RGM supercharger, I think that’s the ultimate! I do...

Re: 4.8L Performance upgrade options

The main reason I bought a patrol was the legendary reliability. I dont want to mess with any settings that Nissan designed as obviously they work very well. If its your toy, then sure, turbo it, supercharge it etc, but, for me, if its a holiday, long distance cruiser, it needs to be as reliable as...

Steve,

who in Bellville will you recommend to upgrade the sound system?
I use Soundmatch in Parow Voortrekker. When it comes to sound the Indians are the best. LOL
And they give good sound advise on what to go for. (excuse the pun)

Re: Bluetooth Streaming

I second turfing the EOM and getting a full system replacement. OEM is not very good (and that is putting it mildly). I have a Pioneer system installed and sommer threw in a reverse camera so I can see Nissan Micras before I back into their parking spot. I went the GROM route on the BMWs as they are...

If you can't keep your wheels on the ground with flex, then lock your diffs to retain traction and momentum.....
Or... get as much flex as possible and then lock front and rear :thumbup:
