Hi all!

I’ve always had a great passion for beach 4wding and camping trips, in 2009 I brought my stock GQ Patrol in the hopes of customising it to suit me so that I can get away and enjoy the outdoors as much as possible!

Well I can say that the project is finally complete (well as close as it will ever get, seems there’s always new things to do to cars :bigthumb: ) and I wanted to a quick write up on my Patrol!

Thanks to all my mates, this is what I have the pleasure of taking offroad! :cheers:

Cheers mate, I'm really happy how it's all come together! :cheers:

Before the turbo it was getting 24 seconds at 57 MPH using three gears, with the turbo it now does the quarter in 22 seconds at 60 MPH, including a shift into fourth! :bananaro:
Great GQ!!!
Cheers mate :-D
I am going on a beach trip soon, I was wondering if anyone had a recommendation for a new clutch?
The clutch in it is over 8 years and 150,000kms old and works perfectly, but now it has a turbo, 33's, has all the extra weight plus the trailer, I thought it best to put a new one in before it becomes an issue.

I have heard of; Xtreme, NPC and Safari Tuff.

What would be the best for me?

Thanks for the suggestion!

I found this thread TD42 Clutch Life Post
I think I may have been paranoid a bit, seeing as this clutch has done 150,000kms :D
January Update;

The GQ passed 400,000kms :D

I completed a full service, like I do every 50,000km and every fluid came out the same colour and condition it went in!

Also, I got the turbo tuned; it is now at 12PSI and goes, so. much. better!!!!

Looking forward to the next trip with the GQ and Camper!!!!
