Dependable distributors can send you an italian needle valve, just let them know its for your diesel patrol. Very friendly service and cheaper than Pirtek (when i checked anyway)

The hardest part of the setup is finding somewhere to buy the needlevalve from. I went to a local hydrolic shop and expained it to them. $60 later and I had the correct size needle valve. There are NO specific needle valves made directly for the use in boost control. They are used to control liquedss and fluids in hydrolic applications.

Any Pirtek or good Hydraulics/Pneumatics establishment have it in stock or will get it for you, your after a 1/8th BSPF DV6 needle valve, but there is one model that has a one way operation, you don't want that one.

If your referring to the 1/8BSPF DV6 then that is pretty much a generic description they would recognise.

Hi guys,

Reading some of the posts in the past - some of the guys talk about a dual dawes/needle setup to manage both high and low boost mode.

Is the setup from these suppliers suggested a mono or dual?

Cheers
Guido:D

Mmmm, me thinks Chaz and I should be getting royalties :lol:

Great kit but needs longer vacuum hose and two "T" pieces for breaking into the VNT and bleed line (at the filter) if you want to install it in the cabin.

:cheers:

X2, you guys helped me imensly when I was putting mine in.

PS. I think the single dawes/needle setup will suffice for 99.9% of Patrol owners.

Ta Dan!

That sorted THAT little quandry out! Only single Dawes for me then! And ta Chaz for the extra requirements for the kit from the supplier of the needle valve!

The components used in the dual dawes system can be used to set up a dual needle valve system, obviously swapping the second dawes for a second needle valve.

Guido mentioned existing posts. This is the one on the dual needle system:http://www.patrol4x4.com/forum/nissan-patrol-gu-gr-10/single-dawes-valve-dual-needle-setup-42841/

I am going to go single dawes first, perfect that and then try a dual needle system.

I have a few questions. I am blocking the egr as well. Can you set up the single needle & dawes, before blocking the EGR and run it for a while to iron out the settings? Then after blocking the EGR, make any final adjustments on the needle.

Absolutely, but you may need to readjust the dawes as well when you do the EGR due to the changed spool up rate. It is always better to make one change at a time, to me you come out of the exercise better educated that way.

I recently changed the size of the boost line to the dawes, still 3mm to the gauge but stepped it to 6mm to the dawes, after doing this I had to readjust the dawes, small things can make a difference.

Thanks for the clarification Geeyoutoo,

I can see me trying to do both some Sunday arvo and getting into a big mess. One step at a time will suit me. I just wasn't certain things would not go t*ts up when the EGR starts to operate at different boost levels.

Trying to think logically about it, the Dawes system will increase boost in the induction side at the point where the egr opens. The additional boost pressure will reduce the pressure differential between the exhaust and induction, so its harder to recirulate the exhaust. The end result should simply be less exhaust gets recirculated.

Cheers,

Grogey
