Re: Bonnet for my 2008 Partol

What is so bad about “excess” underbonnet air?
If anything it should help cool underbonnet temps?

After the Lexus conversion in 2011 I have kept the 3D scoop on. It has never been an issue. So why block it off?

Re: Opinion of what she is worth

So no cleaning required in between services, with lots of dirt exposure in between.
If that is the case then I cannot fault it. My opinion is not based on personal experience.

Re: Opinion of what she is worth

For those with cone filters (from RGM or anyone else for that matter), how frequently do you need to take it out and clean it if you are touring through dirt and dust in Namibia or Botswana all day and every day? RGM would obviously not be on standby for maintenance, so doing it yourself is importan...

You can import the 4.8 turbo kit from Australia for aro...
