Re: EGT TEMPS ON 4.8 PETROL PATROL

Thanks JP

That's the kind of info I need to know.

Anyone know what normal operating EGT's on a large straight 6 would be?
I could test the thermocouple with a heat gun except that at prsent the distance between Heat Gun and Patrol is 300 km :biggrin:

Re: EGT TEMPS ON 4.8 PETROL PATROL

Thanks Graham..

I still have to wonder about the whole measurement of EGT in an aftermarket scenario.

I can move the probe 10 cm away and now say Temps are fine?

I have a heat gun, think I must test the probe..

EGT TEMPS ON 4.8 PETROL PATROL

Good morning all I am looking for a couple of pointers here.. I installed a VDO Egt Gauge when I had my Patrol super-charged, but even though I thought I would pay proper money for a decent gauge, there was no indication as to where one should actually fit the probe. We ended up fitting it at the ac...

Re: The 4.5 Turbo

Open road consumption figures would be informative.
IMO same for same must come down as the engine would be more efficient at combustion.??.

Wilhelm will have to exercise some discipline to tell us what we want to know.

Michael is there a reason you went Spitstronics rather than a Uni Chip?

Re: The 4.5 Turbo

Fantastic job Michael, looks very neat and professional. Gains are nothing short of impressive. Is it imperative to redo the motor internals from a strength point of view or was it to drop the compression ratio? And the big question is, will you ultimately have a conversion kit with pricing for 4.5 ...

Re: Turbo for 4.5l

Congrats on the performance upgrade…
Extra ponies certainly make for a enjoyable drive.

Any idea of consumption figures yet?

Re: PATROL 4.8 GRX Chip, map and freeflow

I think I'll be changing the exhaust tail piece, at low speeds its too loud for my liking. Its nice under throttle but too loud if you want to do 100/120, especially because the torque converter slips easily at those speeds. So I did get to do a bit of testing and I got to 4500 rpm before a truck wi...

Re: PATROL 4.8 GRX Chip, map and freeflow

So I've had my Patrol at RGM Motorsport.. Doing the Super Charger fitment plus general service items, new oil in the diffs, taking out play in the wheel bearings etc etc And the biggest issue was working out how to over come the speed limiter. Now I know that most like to cruise at around 120 but ch...

Re: New Bilstein Suspension by Mikem

Ant idea why the rear reservoir isnt mounted near the top, similar to the front ones?

I'm afraid I'm ignorant here.

Re: New Bilstein Suspension by Mikem

Those look really nice..

Would you mind elaborating on cost?

I'm not clued up on suspension either, so what is the purpose of the reservoir?

You put new coils in too by the looks of things?

Where is the lift from, shocks or coils?
