  2. DIY Modifications & Accessories
    I've always been a tinkerer and looking for a boost gauge solution and I heard of Arduino a while ago so I looked it up. Amazed how cheap this stuff is and info readily available for just about anything. I've been fine tuning a boost gauge and dual battery setup on a small 1.3oled which will fit...

    Hey Everyone! First time poster here! Firstly I have a 2000 Nissan Terrano which has the ZD30 in it. Engine idles very smooth and everything however it is quite hard to start, cranks for quite a bit then finally starts, it also has rather slow acceleration, blows quite a bit of black smoke when...

    Di GU series two ZD30 - just want a straight answer, someone please tell me if 14-15 pounds of boost are safe to run on the grenade? yes or no? as i've heard it's to lower boost to run and will strain the motor, but in fact if i run anymore than 14 psi for longer than 7 seconds, goes into limp...

    I'm looking for a way to run a boost gauge without having to drill into my intercooler. Is there any way. Spoke to a mechanic who suggested a T piece through this line but wanted to get opinions to be sure. If this won't work where else Can I put the T piece

    Recently I have been experiencing inconsistent issues with the boot pressure. I can drive for half an hour without issue, go to work and then on the way home it constantly behaving oddly. Got a 3 inch exhaust, had an engine rebuild couple of years ago and I haven't changed anything since. When...
  8. 3 Litre ZD30 CRD Engine
    Hi guys, got some autotecnica gauges, egt gauge died in less than a year. A bit disappointing tbh and now the boost part of the gauge is playing up. Just wondering what is a good gauge brand that doesnt cost an arm and a leg. Heard mixed reviews about Saas. Also, may be a dumb question but are...
  9. 3 Litre ZD30 CRD Engine
    G'day all, so i have been playing the the boost on my 07 CRD wagon and just had a thought. As i don't have a pyro guage yet and i have a 3" exhaust EGR blocked Dawes and needle valve installed with the boost set at 19 psi and the needle valve closed so the spool rate is AWESOME... and fuel...

    Hey, new Y61 RD28 Patrol owner and been doing lots of tinkering to get this thing running reliably. Was running hot, sorted that (i think) Noticed I was hitting the over boost release valve and the boost gauge was cruising past 15psi when I've got my foot down over 4k rpm until. Usually hwy 4th...

    So I have had a long issue that you may have participated in my diagnosis, I am due for dyno testing on tuesday but we (mechanic and I ) that it will be turbo related. I believe it maybe related to the exhaust side of the turbo.. Question: Is that something joe blogs can do ? Where is the...
  15. 3 Litre ZD30 DI Engine
    Long story short. 05 GU left in dry storage for short period due to now having work car. Plan to sell post RWC the beast is all good at this stage. Go to take for airbag recall no boost (well 5psi) no guts cant climb hill. Get it home pull it apart, replace some vac hoses (coz they looked...

  18. 3 Litre ZD30 DI Engine
    Ok so I have been looking through everything trying to figure out what the go is with my 3.0l patrol. Have gone through heaps of other posts but they all seem to have the nads setup. So my patrol feels like it goes into limp mode as soon as I put the foot down. The revs slowly climb but my...

    Hi peeps, A few months ago bought my 2002 model GUIII Auto from a retiree who, unfortunately, is now unable to continue his much-loved Grey-nomad lifestyle. I took one look at it, took it for a little spin and couldn't resist. I needed a tow-car for just the same job. So it's a genuine one owner...

Went for a spin and can't get the boost above 10psi...
