Patrol or Safari?

Post by BernardM » 28 Jan 2015 21:12

Hi guys,

I saw this for sale on Gumtree and was wondering is this a Patrol or a Safari? If I had to say, I would go with Safari.

Secondly, were the specs on the 2.8 engine really that impressive or are they taking a chance? 380nm, really?

I really wouldn't mind a vehicle like this. I love the old Safari's. They bring back happy memories. :biggrin:

Yip, it is a Nissan Safari/Patrol alright. But the engine specs are a bit over the top for a standard L28 or L28E engine. Maybe they had the engine done by Van der Linde Developments. :woo:

Still a very nice specimen. :thumbup:

Van der Linde het gewoonlik die 2,8 engin 50kw verhoog - het jare terug met hulle gepraat en uitgevind wat hulle doen!

Daai is nog 'n Safari.

Hi kerels. As daai ou n stroker motor in het maak hy daai krag maklik.
Jy vat n L28 blok, LD28 CRANK, C160 conrods. Dan word head ge-gas flow met branch, brandstofinspuiting en vir die ernstige kragvrate n T6 turbo. As Jy daarna die Safari kan kry om Sy wiele in te trek het Jy n vierkantige misiel

Van Van der Linde se voorstel het ek net die free branch en die 38 Weber op gesit en my Safari het baie krag - dis seker ook omtrent so 120Kw. :thumbup:

Ek glo dit is maklik om 120kw uit daai ou engines te kry want hulle was so underpowered, maar 380nm klink bietjie erg. As jy dit reg kry is die betroubaarheid seker ook daarmee heen.
