Jannie, dankie vir die kompliment :biggrin:

Ons is baie bly dat jy tevrede is met jou bakkie, hy het regtig baie mooi uitgekom en ek moet self se ek is self beindruk met daai suspensie :thumbup:

Mag jy elke dag smile as jy in hom klim

Ok so some more positive things happening on the turbo kits.
Today I got the first two manifolds and they are looking great.

The first 5 manifolds will sell for R3,500 and the next batch will be R3,700. They under quoted with the castings, but its still a bargain I think.

I also did a bolt on conversion last week and the power gains are also very good and a big increase from the standard power.
Overall the gains are around 33% and cost R35,000 for everything including the madman, 3" exhaust and a stainless air box.
This is a setup with no intercooler, 0.6 bar boost and 550 peak EGT's

Dirk, I already have a setup for the diesels........you must just bring in your Patrol

Here are some pics of a similar turbo and manifold like your engine has except foe the missing intercooler. We can make yours as shiny and neat like this one in no time :biggrin:
