General Information

- The Trol
- 2000
- Nissan
- Patrol ZD30 DI GUII
- That very rare "Bronze" colour
- Safety Pack (dual airbags and ABS)
- Oct 2000 build bought new, "Grenaded" at 155,000k after years of very long high speed project work trips, thus unknowingly having extended high EGT periods. Rebuilt using post 2003 block, ceramic coated pistons and new head, reused crank and rods. Started NADS work with around 180,000k on the clock. Hung around the forum for a while before joining in early 2010. Always looking for little projects/improvements that basically any handyman can do and there are many of them.
Currently have 376,000k on the clock and going stronger than ever. Not interested in the biggest Hp I can get out of it because it is a tourer and it's drive-ability I'm after, so I want reasonable Hp coming in as low as possible and achieve good low torque, and above all have reliability, something I have achieved but always looking for a project. Currently have max torque at 2000 rpm (feels like 1800) and max Hp at 2400 rpm, the quick rise in low rev Hp makes the torque feel like it is coming on much earlier, this is a significant improvement and addition for work done over the years, drives beautifully.
The old DI has 411,000k on it now, going better than ever. An Eclipse turbo was fitted with great results
