Russ, I believe the bigger intake only makes a real differance ona N/A engine as the engine has to do all the suck work.

On the turbo engine the turbo really doesnt struggle to get the air where it should be. I think the Ausies only start using a 3" intake when they start boosting 1.5bar+.

So far no problems from a zd30 air box and standard 4x4direct snorkel

Is this the case with petrol engines as well, as does it matter for superchargers?

On my non-aspirated petrol V8, I have tested the impact of the standard air filter on a dyno once.
It made 15kw difference taking the air straight into the engine (i.e. decoupling the pipe connecting the air filter), and putting it back on again.

Alex, the petrol engines should work the same.
So even if the air is restricted on the intake side, the turbo will just compensate for this and still deliver the same amount of boost set by the actuator

Inlet restriction makes much more of a difference on normally aspirated engines than on forced-induction, because normally with forced-induction you are limiting the boost (IE you are not using the maximum pressure the turbo is capable of generating).

If you were not limiting the boost it would be a different story.

But I would be interested to see if reducing the restriction would not flatten the torque curve of a TDI a little bit...

Well the bakkie won't get lost that easily anymore.
The risk of theft on the Patrol bakkie is next to nothing.
Ironically, .... My first Patrol pickup 4.2D (also a 2007 model), was stolen after 4 days of ownership, with 2 full tanks of fuel, from a very secure parking, with another R60k worth of tooling and wet weather clothing, also Garmin, leatherman and ipod.

I reckon it made its way swiftly over the border and very shortly had an anti -aircraft gun bolted to the tub.

I only did 270Km on that vehicle.

That really sucks Russ :thumbdown:

Its the first Patrol I hear of that has been stolen and its really bad that you had all those extra stuff in it.......and the two tanks of fuel which I dont know why, but I will be mostly upset about the fuel

Hahaha. Was company fuel. not that it made a difference to my claim at all. I insured it for more than i paid for it, so luckily was able to buy the slightly newer model with full Nissan Safari Pack (full ONCA bar work etc etc and double skin load bin)
