  1. 3 Litre ZD30 CRD Engine

  3. Nissan Patrol MQ/MK 160/260 series
    Hey all. Just got around to fitting a a 3inch straight through exhaust on the old girl, while i was doing so i had the turbo off so decided it would be a good time to add some extra guages. The EGT probe is Pre turbo, I have only done a small couple of trips since, getting readings up to 550c...

    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...
  5. Nissan Patrol GU/GR Y61
    We have been back 2 months from our 7 month round Oz caravan trip and decided to share my observations. I had previously spent 3 years preparing my mighty Patrol for the trip including an 2 inch lift and upgrade of suspension, full NADS, 3" exhaust, Steinbauer chip, EGT and Boost Gauge. All...

    Hi guys, I finally got round to installing my Autron gauges today, the dual batter gauge works fine but the EGT/BOOST is causing me some problems. The boost side is working but the EGT doesn't register on the gauge at all. The temp sensor is screwed into the bung that i had welded onto the...
  8. Nissan Patrol GU/GR Y61
    I always see threads on egt gauge installs on turbo diesels but has anyone bothered to install an egt gauge on their 4.5 or 4.8 turbo'd or N/A? I was throwing around the idea of installing one in my 4.5 to see the actual difference in exhaust temps between running on LPG and petrol, i also...
  9. Nissan Y62 Patrol, Armada & Infiniti QX80
    I have a 2010 patrol ute with only 10 000km on it and i have put a 3 inch exhaust and a tunit diesel chip (still at factory setting of 5) on it. I have recently put a boost gauge and a pyrometer on and have been getting high EGT readings. Around town I get temp readings anywhere between 200 and...
  10. Nissan Patrol GU/GR Y61
    Hi all, I have installed an EGT in preparation for caravan towing. My question is : what is a high EGT? when should I be concerned?. Its one thing to gave a EGT gauge but its pretty useless unless you can determine whether the engine is starting to get too hot. Comments please Thanks in...
  11. Nissan Patrol GU/GR Y61
    Hi All, I have a 2002 ZD3.0 auto from new and have installed a digital boost gauge and EGT. My question is two fold: 1. As I intend to tow a 2.5 ton caravan, how can I minimise high boost pressures during normal driving? and 2. What is dangerous boost pressure and if I have high boost...
  12. 3 Litre ZD30 DI Engine
    Gave the new (2500km) ZD30 engine a wide open throttle run (under controlled conditions) and I now have EGT of 620 Degrees C - seems too high - we used to tune normally aspirated diesels to 550 max - surely the post turbo temps should be the same... I backed off once it passed 600 and was still...
