either I'm blind but I cant seem to find my MAP sensor on my 2000 Patrol/Safari SWB ZD30DDTi....or does it not have one? I can see on the intercooler where other threads have 'said' they are, :rolleyes:

As DieselTuner said, it's not there. BUT that is one weirdo intercooler as it has the MAP sensor in a different place to those in Aus.

However on yours it should be on the front of the intercooler between the left intercooler mounting bolt and the intercooler cover bolt.

it belongs where the two bolt flange with the tapered hole in the middle are.
On the right side of the intercooler.

So yes, it is missing.
Cheers to you and heyhey..... the place you have indicated, has the mounting holes etc and nipple point in the center (un-tapped) - what I was more concerned/puzzled with is the hell is the wiring loom? I had the IC off tonight and tried to follow the main lines but everything appeared to be plugged in etc:doh:

Your picture is too small to work that out.

yeah sorry only had the iphone on me and was crappy light! i'll try to track down some manual/ref document that may show why this does not not have a MAP sensor or even the MAP sensor plug?

There must be a bung in the hole otherwise there would be leak, is that a screw I can see in the hole? The early ZD30 doesn't pay much attention to the MAP, I had had mine (2000 model) disconnected for a while back in the old days when I was looking at cures for limp just to see what happened and it didn't care, so they could have just dropped it off, are you sure there are no "spare" plugs at the front somewhere.

thanks Geeyoutoo - there is no bung in there, its actually a sealed cast, as if it missed the drilling phase of production. As for the plug's whereabouts :angryfir: I'll take it to a nissan specialist today or god forbid a nissan service agent.

Yeap differently no wiring plug for MAP sensor, my only though is that this model (Hard top SWB Nov 2000) takes the boost pressure off the MAF ? agree/disagree/suggestions? - where I'm going with this is, if I install a CC intercooler it will be tapped with this hole, I could just use it as my boost gauge source?

It is possible I suppose it didn't have one, as said it wasn't a critical component on the early ones, but it doesn't pay for a company to have several different wiring looms it's cheaper to make one loom and just not use some plugs on specific models, we all have "spare" plugs, unless you have the top of the range, so it does surprise me that there is no plug??????

The CCIC does not have a hole, it uses the std fitting (which has a protrusion that inserts into that hole you have that doesn't exist :), and you just run a line from the CCIC fitting to the protrusion, all you need to do is block one side of the CCIC fitting. easy peasy, see pic for detail.

The MAP on the DI is only a over boost fail safe, it is not used to calculate any running requirements.

You can run your boost gauge from the barb or unscrew it and blank it off.

Had nothing better to do for a few minutes :) so here's a pic of mine right now (last one was taken during installation so it doesn't show the lot).
