Hi all, Just a quicky to say hello from the UK. You seem to be well into your Trols and Mav's here. Just got myself a 1996 Patrol Y60 RD28T GR. I think this is the same as your GU (am I right about this?) Its bog standard at the minute but I have plans to do some mods once I get to know it a bit better. Hope to get some info here as to what can and cannot be done. Been looking around the site for a few days before posting this. Great site keep up the good work.

G'day bloke,

Great to see another pootroll fan in the making. I'm a recent acolyte myself with an RD28T GQ LWB. With a few choice mods, the RD can really kick up a stink. They aren't bomb-proof like the old TD's, but they have a great bottom end and a great rev range.

Make sure you check the harmonic balancer every oil change, change oils dead on 5K or early, regularly check/change your coolant and timing belt and the RD28 will go well for a while yet. Let maintenance fall behind and they do not like it.

Throw up a few photos man.

Cheers,
Mick
