I'm just after people's opinion on which turbo and inter cooler setup I should get. I have a 2003 TD42ti with 300,000 on the clock, I'm wanting to tour with a small caravan, bit of beach work and forestry as well as the occasional 4wd park.
I want minimal lag and enough power too tow and overtake with ease.
I'm leaning towards a front mount, diesel central 12mm pump, GTurbo, new injectors and inlet manifold. I'm just having trouble finding good info on the GTurbo's from people that have one.

12mm pump puts you strait into the big power category, which means 18g and 220+rwhp.
I can't comment on the 'lag' of a UFI 18g over a UFI UFI 16 large but my combo nets super sweet early spool. 16g large with all the fruit.
Il pm ya and you can give me a call if ya want. There to much to talk about.
As for g turbo, I can't help there.

I have a DC6 230hp pump. Originally had a 16g/L, but now run an 18g.
There is a slight initial lag with the 18g compared to the 16g/L, but if I hadn't had the 16g/L I wouldn't have noticed it.....I don't now.

What did your 16 make with the pump Geoff?
Got a Dyno print out I can have a gander at? My pump should be here in a few days

It did 185rwhp with the DC6 and 16g/L, but it was detuned to suit the small intercooler.
Was running the factory air box (lid modded) and snorkel at the time.

Hi Out&About
Welcome to the forum.
Matt's products from UFI comes highly recommended from not only myself, but many others on this forum.
Not only is it his product, but the support there after.
I've a 16 small, it suits my needs very well, whereas others are happy with their 18G extracting big power.
I contacted Matt, told him what I do with the vehicle, and followed with his recommendation, also investing in a cross country intercooler.
Got a tune from Andy, who is also on this form.
I didn't need to change my pump, thus its maxed out.
I'm very happy with my setup, good low down power.

Thanks Patrol Junkie, I'll give Matt a call and see what he recommends.

While your talking to Matt ask him his thoughts on your front mount intercooler choice.
Some Guys including Matt had trouble with over heating on long up hill trips with a front mount because the air was restricted to the radiator. It doesn't really matter if you don't do long trips towing etc but otherwise I would stick to top mount or water to air.

A well designed front mount won't impede flow enough to cause overheating issues, common with eBay coolers
