  1. Buying a Nissan Patrol
    Hey. I want to buy a two door Nissan Patrol GU/Y61 There's a guy selling one with a sunroof (a must), with RD28 swap (we didn't get the i6 4.2L Patrol here so that's an oddity) for an affordable price, it's readily available and it checks out. What I don't like is the spartan early 90's...

    Hello guys I want to adjust the turbo to kick in earlier on my 92 GQ RD28T. It has straight pipe and an intercooler. Now it kicks in at 2700 rpm and its late I think.

    Hi guys, couple weeks ago the timing belt tensioner let go, the car still ran perfectly apart from the tensioner jumping around, the timing had jumped a little from the injector pump side. Now I’ve replaced the tensioner, idler and set injector pump, camshaft, and crank to correct timing marks...

  11. Nissan Patrol GU/GR Y61
    Hi all, having some issues with my 1998 RD28. First and foremost, it drives perfect, no power loss, turbo is boosting as normal, no skipping and will idle smooth. However it appears that once the car has been sitting idle for a good 4 or 5 minutes, after I take off it will blow a plume of what...

    Hi all, soon to be installing a boost gauge into my RD28. Seemed simple at first, thought I just 'T' off of a vacuum line and you're set to go, but after doing my own research I'm seeing some people drilling and tapping into the IC pipe work and saying no way you can tap into a vacuum line and...

    Hey, I have a problem with my rd28 engine. After a rebuild I had a lot of issues to get the engine to start and only after fuel pump inspection the car is running on 3 cylinders 1st, 2nd and 3rd. I know the firing order is 3-6-2-4-1-5 and I've noticed that the pump has marked each fuel line...

    My name is Will and i've just hit 18, after about a year of learning and researching the death out of 4x4 vehicles and culture i've come to the conclusion i want a Y61 patrol. However my budget would be max $6500 at this stage, i realise that is very tight, but i would consider myself a...

    Hey guys I'm starting this post which will be ongoing as I complete the modifications required to get the turbo to fit as I have started an upgrade on my GQ RD28 to get it into the boost earlier, people always seem to put a bigger turbo on which makes no sense to me so I'm going the opposite way...

    `Hello everyone. I am going to replace the oil pan gasket on my RD18 because it is leaking. So I'd love to hear your opinions on the following: - The job will be done without removing the engine (working under the car). - Shops here offer 2 types of gaskets, the original (rubber) and the option...

    Hello! I'm looking for the information if it is possible to swap head from Y61 to Y60 RD28. Of course, I will resign from the Y61 vacuum, and install the Y60 head cover, keeping Y60 vacuum pump in place (alternator). What about other things? Will it work? :-) Best Regards, Maciej, from Poland

    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...

    Does any one know if you can use a head off an RD28 Intercooled on a RD 28 non intercooled motor? Cheers Scott

    Happy New year everyone! My RD28 has died and I don't wish to rebuild it again. I'm sold on the idea of an LS1 conversion with auto box - but am wondering if anyone can suggest / recommend where I can get the conversion done in Melbourne or Victoria. Being short of time, and a little bit...
