    A little update. I haven't done much to the old girl since, except drive it. Have bought some swaybar bushes and the like as well as an Intervolt DCC Pro dual battery charger, all yet to be fitted. She's certainly due for some TLC. But, mainly, I am pleased that the engine and turbo setup is...

    Welcome home. I saw one of these all done up in Mareeba QLD towing an offroad camper trailer, and yes, all thickly covered in red silt. It was a rather soothing sight, finally someone using it properly. I love me a 5 cylinder diesel. I had a WH Grand Cherokee a couple years ago but had the...

    Thanks mate, appreciate it. Has been a long time coming. Still more to come. :rolleyes: Cheers Phil. Can't agree more, ay. I miss the sound of the 80's and 90's eras of the TD42, RD28, 12HT, 1HDT's rumbling around. Now it's like you're a crim if you have a loud vehicle. Out where I live it's...

    Thanks mate, yeah the torque is nice, just cruises around on low boost well enough without the need to tromp it. Serves me well enough.

    Short run up the range.

    Finally got around to fitting the intercooler scoop. Definitely a nice bit of difference even for a small cooler. Lowered EGT's by around 20 degrees and slowed down the rising rate of temps.

    Here's a little video of my setup. I need a decent Camera as my phone microphone is on its way out.

    Now that I could cruise at 100kph loaded up to 3220kg I decided to add a Kings hardshell roof top tent. Such a great addition. Fuel does get impacted a bit, I think around 14-15L/100 driving economy style, but if I want to jet everywhere, that turbo and 12mm pump system can chug down 20L/100 if...

    Test and tune day! Midrange fueling and 20psi of boost yielded me 193HP which I was very surprised at. Still more fuel left and upto 35psi if I wanted. But the poor R151 wouldn't cope I don't think. I adjusted the aneroid pin to offer a bit more fuel down low and at max boost which extended it...

    After testing, I found the new factory 1HZ clutch was slipping by 17psi and couldn't get it tuned till it was upgraded. Then I got to installing the new clutch and also fitted the reconditioned full-spline kitted R151 box I bought previously with the spare turbo engine. I decided on a 4Terrain...

    Then I prepared all the mating surfaces and did some more match-porting and blenting of the flanges to suit.

    Next was time to do valve clearances, and then I figured, why not just do it properly as I had 330,000klms and at 400,000klms we would typically do a top-end rebuild. So I decided to recondition the head while I was at it. To be honest, it all looked pretty good but in reality I had pitting in...

    I don't think it's on MAPS or GPS. So it's kinda difficult to explain. When were you wanting to explore?

    7 Hills 4wd Track Mareeba Shire, QLD.

    Hi, I was there a few weeks ago, did a half loop. There's some good wheeling to be had there. Still haven't experienced any trouble from being there, although, I do not frequent every weekend. There are no signs or barricades to detest otherwise. I guess as always, go and take a look, respect...

    Yep, it's a good point and pretty sure they are factory 1HZT pistons, which also has me pondering whether some of the coaster engines imported are actually 1HDT or 1HZT. There were factory 1HZT in Coaster buses outside Australia.

    On a side note, was old mates 60th, so he wanted to do the Creb, so I played tour guide for the day and showed him and his mate the typical loop. We stayed at the Lions Den for the night and seeing as there was 3 of us plus he was chuffed about the setup, we stayed in the safari tent. I must say...

    Well, the goods finally arrived, TD06H-18G huffer to add to the kit. Start on the head soon. I am in two minds about the head. Half of me just wants to throw all this kit on and go, the other half says "you've gone to the trouble of selective design so far, complete the rest in the same...

    I have the factory R151 in and will likely wait till it gives in. I scored a fully rebuilt and strengthened R151 with full spline 5th gear with 20,000klms on it with that spare donk I got. My bro has a H151 with 130,000klms from a VDJ, very tempting. Not sure what route I will take at this...

    Thanks mate. Yeah trying to get at it all, slower than I want but I guess we can't always have everything, even though we sometimes try. Haha. I figured what's the point of an awesome turbo setup if the rest is outta whack. I guess that is upkeep and the forced induction saga. After the year of...
