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

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...

Re: 26-28 October 2018: Baboons Pass

Personally I would not. My kids are 6 and 8 and have done every trip with us and I chose to not bring them along on last years trip.
I think it will just be a little harsh on them

Re: '95 SFA Hilux 2.4

Really well kitted bakkie that! My firat overlanding vehicle was very almost a KZTE, always been a fan of them
The sad thing is that the price tag on it will probably be in the range of buying a Patrol........ Toyota just has that price tag whick everyone is willing to pay.

Re: old used up 285 / 70 /16 tyres wanted

Noted Henning, but is the 285/70/16 really that scarce? I have had a set on both my Patrol when I bought it as well as the 4.8 so seemed quite commen?

Re: old used up 285 / 70 /16 tyres wanted

Please read carefully, he is looking for 285/70/16 (31,7") tyres not 286/75/16 (32,8")

I dont see how this size could have any negative effect
