  1. Buying a Nissan Patrol
    Hey guys, I currently own a 09 Gu 3.0L CRD. Ive had the car for a couple years now and love it. Its tricked out mostly for touring but capable for weekend fun.

    Hi lads, got a rd28t gq lined up for purchase on Saturday and just wondering what the requirements are for a td42 conversion. Do i need to get it engineered? And if so how much would it set me back. Cheers boys.

  4. Nissan Patrol GU/GR Y61
    Hey guys I have just sold my patrol and am looking for a new Y61 in the UK. I have found one which is a ZD30 but has been personally converted to a TD42. The car itself has done 180k and the motor 120k. For £5k is it worth the buy, the logbook still states a 3.0L so would need that changed etc...

  6. Engine & Drivetrain
    Hi guys, I am considering an upgrade but I am not sure what is really possible. But I am sure people here combined must have done a lot of things: So here are my options: 1) Recondition the Engine 2) Buy a new engine 2.8 again 3) replace the engine with a newer version of the 4 cylinder ZD30...

  9. Engine & Drivetrain
    Hi guys I recently got my license and I'm going to be picking up a GQ swb for my first 4wd. I've been doing a bit of research and I'm having difficultly in finding what exactly is required for a Rb26 conversion into the GQ. I can get a rb26 off my mate but he dosent have the matching gear box...

    Hi everyone, I started doing my gq carby to EFi and I am currently stuck with an issue. I've got no spark. I'm using a Vl loom, pump and Dizzy. I've replaced all fuel lines and did the wiring which I found on this link...
  11. Nissan Patrol GU/GR Y61
    My GU Patrol performs great by its self, but I need more power for towing. Where do I start, exhaust and chip? if so what performs the best and who does the best install - I'd want to put it on the Dyno after the install for best results as I have NADS installed already 139kw on the dyno. or...
  12. Nissan Patrol GQ/Y60 & Ford Maverick
    Hi all, I have a '93 GQ TB42 petrol/gas carby. All in all a great car, but I'm getting a bit fed up with how gutless it is (as in planting the accelerator is just a leg work-out!). Short of ditching it for a turbo diesel, what other options do I have to up the power? e.g. engine conversion...

  14. General Patrol Discussion
    Just finished doing a 2.8 to TD42Ti engine swap and thought I would share my experience with everyone. It all started two days after a trip to Lake Ayer and back (Melbourne). The missus was driving, started the engine, no oil pressure, siezed the engine. Pulled the engine down. #1 camshaft...
  15. Engine & Drivetrain
    I have just finished a 2.8 to TD42Ti conversion. Not quite on the road yet. Still have to make up some intercooler pipes. Instead of getting the fuel pump converted to mechanical advance I used the ECM from the 4.2 and changed the 2.8 Loome to suit. Prety easy job. I will do another thread on...
