That second last pic , the one of the engine, some piping has been rerouted and the blue solenoid for the charcoal canister has been disconnected, funny green wire used on the temp sensor and just to the left of it it looks like there is an unplugged black connector with some non factory connections goin in there, MAF sensor wiring is not seated properly on the air intake - minor issue.

Cedric, are you maybe going back there today or Friday? I'm also close by so I can meet you and we go look at it again. If we go Friday I will take the Patrol for comparison?

Didn't all 4.8's come out with an engine cover?

Its so crazy at work at the moment, that I was hoping to make a turn past there on Friday at about 16h00, if they are still open that late on a Friday.

we can make a plan though to go there in force!!

edit.... I see they are open till 6pm Mon - Fri

Cedric,
The radiator looks like mine except for the red rubber grommets.
Like the black interior.
Good luck.
Riaan

Thanks Riaan. I was quite surprised at the size of it. It looked so small in comparison to mine..... ok mine is way bigger than standard TD42 too.
