Het nou al baie videos gesien van die motor in ombouings, lyk asof dit monster enjins is wat geen einde aan krag het nie.
Kan nie wag om die klaar Patrol in aksie te sien nie. :bravo:

The Conversion is almost done, i have been driving it for 4 months now, we need to tie up a few small things like the speedo and rev counter calibration, the aircon is almost done and then i need to build a proper aircleaner system.
The fuel pin, intercooler etc. that was planned is not going to happen, i am so happy with the fuel consumption and power that i don't want to touch anything.
I will do t a full write-up on all the pro's and cons, but so far i am more than happy with "Brutus"

Can't wait for the wrightup.
Any water temp issues?

I put a donaldson in my GQ. Filter change is R280 for the main filter
It also has a secondary filter.
It is cheaper and bigger than any Patrol standard filter.
Changing to a bigger filter has been the biggest power and driveability improvement I have made to my Car.

Only modification to make it fit was to move the radiator overflow a bit forward.

But I know the 4.5 bonnet is quite cramped for space with the rear aircon and such.
