Just finished upgrading my Patrol (auto) with a 3 inch exhaust and steinbauer chip with accompanying EGT and boost gauges. It goes like a rocket now and its like driving another car. I have the printout of the power /torque curves and getting about a 30% increase (it certainly feels like it). The boost sits at between 10-12 psi (max) and the EGT is sub 500C when highway cruising. The wife is very impressed with the car as she does most of the weekly driving.

A chap in the Brendale area of Brisbane (northern suburbs) did the work for me and I have been impressed with his manner and knowledge of diesels and turbos that he will now do all my car's servicing. My local Nissan dealer and service agent could not tell me whether my Patrol had an automatic transmission cooler even while looking straight at it.

I love my patrol and took this opportunity to say positives things about the Zd30 as all I seem to read in this forum is the negatives. I getting the Patrol ready to tow a caravan in August and I hope to add another 200k to my total 150k so far.

I used All Star Tuning on 07 32056850. unit 89, 193 South Pine Rd Brendale ask for Richard. Apparently he is part of a racing team (Mazda I think) so cars apeear to be a big part of his life.

Nice bloke and he did not give me the hard sell. Speaks quietly and appears to know what he's talking about.

Good luck ; let us know how you go.

Thanks mate,

Next step is an auto lecky for andersen plug and electric brake controller, then anti sway bars, wdh and I reckon I'm just about set to go caravanning with my Patrol.

I suppose my biggest threat is a speeding ticket while driving my rocket.
