Hi guys
Just wondered if anyone could fill me in on what the difference is between
the landcruiser1hdt and the nissan patrol, the big one with I think a 4.2
diesel engine.
Im asking because I was at those dreaded toll booths on a motorway the
same time as the Patrol and it took off after me and passed me. I was unable
to keep up so just wondered if he had something extra. Just curious.
cheers

Hi John,
He should have a TD42 4.2L non turbo indirect injection diesel under the
bonnet, even if he has a very rare TD42T same thing but turboed with a
tiny turbo your truck should run away from a patrol like the patrol is
going backwards. They are a engine reconditioners dream they eat
cylinder heads like they are going out of fashion especially if fitted
with a aftermarket turbo kit.
Cheers,
Craig.

what year patrol was it?? i had a 01 3litre patrol and in was able to
out drag a 03 amazon that my boss had. then again, i wasnt paying the
maintainance bills so i guess that gained me about 50 bhp :)

Hi Craig
Ok maybe now I did say maybe its the driver, it just appeared quicker. I
wont buy one if it causes more heart ache than the cruiser does, no way id
need twice the amount of valium to stop the empty pocket attacks.

Hi Brian
I dont know the year cause it was all dirty.
But the funny thing was he was well gone.
We turned a gently curving bend and saw cars braking which usually means a
cop car is about and low and behold there was the Patrol driver getting 2
points on his licence for speeding.

Hi Craig
Ok sorry but you stirred a question in me old head.
What is the difference between an after market turbo fitted and a factory
fitted turbo.
I have heard this before about after market turbos and problems with engines
but never got around to asking.
Must have something to do with asking a load of other questions about a load
of other just as interesting subjects.

Good point John-I 've heard it before and know the difference but Craig or
Julian or Gareth are the right persons to answer...
as about N Patrol I've looked at it quite envious-looks tough and kind of
concurrent of us(HDJ80 folks)
till the day I saw it-it looked very new, with intercooler and sort of
pushing me so I felt very uncomfortable, but there was no way he could pass
by-the road was sort of small and traffic in both directions and then came
that UPHILL two lines and maybe15km sort of 8% climbing and then I press the
gas pedal and the gorgeous Nissan Patrol begin to disappear in the rear
mirror.On the top of the hill I sort of slow down with
triumphal smile on my face and what do you think happened-after a minute or
so he just passed me by with the same hurry as nothing had happened. those
guys have confidence!!!!!!!!!!!
cheers

PS ...and I was with the OLD turbo then.......
