Found a possible solution to the turbo TD42 conundrum.
Found a scrap yard in Newcastle that has a 4.2Td Patrol bakkie that rolled.
Body is pretty poked, but engine bay is miraculously untouched.
If I strip off all the stock turbo components and build them onto a stock TD42 motor (when I find a Patrol
) it should theoretically all be fine.
Then the troll will make lots of chooo chooo
noises and plenty happiness for me
I'll post the advert in the Marketplace section for anyone who wants parts.List and costs :
Air box - R1710
Turbo manifold - R2850
Turbo - R8550
All piping between air box, turbo, intercooler and intake - R1700
Top mount intercooler - R3990
Complete injector pump with factory boost compensator - R11400 TOTAL - R30 200
Only problem is the okes at the scrap yard are smooth cats from Chatsworth that want to mek joo one shweet deal ma cuzzie. He knows one solid connection and all.
I don't really trust guys that smooth and from so far away.
Just an option I guess.
Maybe I'll just take the pump and air box and after I find a troll, I'll buy a turbo. Let's see how I can swing this one passed SWAMBO
