As for needing a laptop for the 62,... ffs natal your not real clever are you! Lol obviously still on ya p's and full of hormones and read to much 4x4 monthly.
Any modern diesel is the same.
Breaking crap under a 62, well the supercharged one has been holding up fine.300 odd wkw and 650 odd nm from idle ish to redline. The 62 was actually build for he power it makes, the poor old gu does pretty well but it's far from unbreakable.

They both have there place, truth be told ow many people really use like properly use there gu. Farkin hardly anyone, fluff up the beach doin 40kph in there crd or a bit of gravel and have the hide to say the 62 doesn't suit them cos it's a petrol and ind suspension... lol

Pretty sad old world out there.
I happen to like my tough PIG, opinions are just that, opinions............ doesn't matter who has them they are still just opinions unless they have hard facts and time proven statistics to back them up .

I was there when our late friend Joohnoo put his Y62 up the steep hill at Pinaroo first try ahead of anyone else that day (and there were some pretty sophisticated gear there that day), was the car that much better or did Joohnoo outdrive everyone, I prefer to think it was a bit off both .

No it is a guy called Trevor but he is not on the FB page or on here although I chat to him from time to time when he does new mods.

Wranga if we are speaking about the same guy with black Y62 with the dropped chassis and painted black head/tail lights is over here in Perth WA.
Last chat I had with Wranga a few months ago he was speaking about possibly a custom twin turbo

Your extractors would be similar to these but these he had made as a 1 of model made specifically for him, and he said the guy never made a jig (bugger)

I guess it depends who you are insured with. I broke the front alloy crossmember of an AU Falcon on a rock hidden by grass between the wheel ruts of a farm track out in the bush. The cost of replacing the crossmember was nowhere near that of the 500km tow required to get the car back home. I rang my insurer and honestly explained how and where the incident occurred and it was not a problem to them at all. Their response was that as long as the damage was accidental and not deliberate, and it happened somewhere that I was legally entitled to be then I was covered. The insurer was RACQ.
