    Toyota AKA TONKADORE L J 71 1985

    Yeah, I was there. People were trying to convince me to go up in the ute. There was no chance at all that I was brave enough. Not in something as long and narrow as a 79 series.

    It looks like the fuel economy has improved quite noticeably. From 13.5lt/100kms before the exhaust was fitted, down to 12.3lt/100kms after fitting the system. Happy with the results so far.

    Thanks Bomber, i's taken a few years. But it is coming along. Thanks Towie, I'll have to have a read of it properly later.

    I'll have to pay attention to that one Towie. I have notice a big improvement in fuel economy so far. Only on the first tank since getting the system fitted. The cat converter on the original system being blocked might have been part of the problem.

    It seems to spool up a little quicker. The immediate things I noticed was the extra power, and that the system is actually really quiet.

    It's been a while since I've has anything done to the ute. Today I had a 3" exhaust system fitted from the turbo back. Has made a noticeable increase in power. The turbo whistles a lot louder now as well. Just waiting to see how much the fuel economy improves. So far I'm very happy with it.

    UHF in roof console

    Mine was fitted by TJM here in Kilsyth and is was a bit tricky because the across window consoles aren't really designed for a radio, I'm happy with the result though. I was told at the time that the ones that go down the centre of the roof are designed to fit a radio, so you shouldn't have to...

    UHF in roof console

    It can be done easily enough mate, just depends on which roof console you have as to how easy it is. I have an Outback console and Icom 440n radio and it fits together pretty well. To a bit of an effort to work because they aren't a perfect match, but came up a treat.
