Re: Van der Linde conversion

The 4.5 engine in my car has a vanderlinde conversion. Comparing it to the original 4.2 is probably a bit of a waste of time, except that I am convinced it has less torque at low revs (up to say 1200rpm). I reckon you will lose a bit at the bottom, and gain a bit at the top. My personal opinion is ...

Re: Van der Linde conversion

Hi Jannie I have a 2001 4.5 auto this car had a VDL stage 2 conversion done by the previous owner. One would need to compare it head to head with an unmodified 4.5 in order to see how much of a difference this conversion makes.

Re: Nissan Patrol 4.2D Motorhome conversion

In around 2013 I was looking at a late 80s Safari Camper (stretched wheelbase). It had around 180 k on the clock / 6 cylinder petrol engine. Difflock rear. "Everything worked" I was discussing a price of ~ 30.000 R. Unfortunately the sale did not take place due to my own (in hindsight) stupidity. :r...
