Ariel is CB Antenna?


I Know is not a good position,but I always pass near trees, and I can't find a better position.

Now we use portable pmr, that have better trasmission and are more easy to use. But at some meeting someone use old cb
Yes, CB/UHF antenna, mines mounted on the bull bar on passenger side but close to centre so trees not a problem. If your not using it much I don't suppose it matters.

After the summer i started studying these engine:

First thing was installing a turbo gauge to understand how it wors, and I see that sometimes turbo goes to 1.2bar and than 0,5 and than 0,9.

So I decided to remove swirl, close egr e clean my intercooler

After this mod I start thinking about ecu. I couldn't modify my original ecu, I found a ecu with similar codes, i try buying it.

So,when I got my new ecu, I read eeprom in which is stored immodata (mine was a ST M24c02) and I copied it on new ecu.

Car starts with new ecu :D

Than a goes to a professionist to get socket on my new ecu

So I could start with my test on it:

First test was:

EGR OFF

I check always my mods with a nissan data scan & consul 14 (modify in 16 pin)

After that I have Swirl OFF, redution of glow plugs timer, start torque, and I tryied some solution of MAF off, But I don't like the injection sensitivity with turbo pressure variation

First I start with AT27C010 but I discovered that those are OTP...so I buy some AM29F010B that could be erased!

Nowadays I'm really happy of remap result, all my tests were done at 1.1 bar Turbo Pressure. I have a lot of torque from really low rpm. (what I have lost with 35's Tyres).

Now I waiting for new downpipe.
A have also to install an EGT Gauge (just bought).

This is what I have done. (what I forgot I'll add it later :D :D)

Remember sorry for my bad English :(

During this time I have found a spare 35 (16 inch not 15 but always good as spare tyre)

I finally tested my patrol on the snow. I have had a terrible experience with my old car (toyota lj70) with same tyres cooper stt pro. This time I remained impressed of grip of this tyres. I don't know if is it the car or the different production of the tyres, but it was really funny. During the trip road was blocked by another car. So I had to come back, but I wouldn't go on reverse gear. So I entered in 60cm of snow thinking to remain blocked (I was thinking where I can attach my winch). Surprisingly Patrol goes like a charm. Incredible!

At the start ( I always set to LOCK my hub during L4 drive)

Nice Patrol Marco.
It looks like it is continually improving also.
My grandfather who emigrated from Italy after the second world war was a Marco as well. As per tradition I was named for him.

hey Marco great looking car, great work !
be aware that if you go for more serious offroad driving you should install spring retainers (on the axle) and longer bumpstop-cones (up on the chassis) because the springs have a habit of dislocating themselves sometimes. also for the drivers seat i'd recommend looking for a good upholstery business, they can do wonders with new leather, and if you get both seats done nobody can see the difference, and probalby still cheaper than buying a new seat ;-)

For the front seat I'm waiting to decide where spend my money. I'm afraid of result. If leather is too different it's a problem for me :(

New downpipe is arrived.63mm stainless. I'll think about kat back: OEM ones or 60mm center silence of audi s3 that I had in my garage.

I also bought a new wastegate to test new pressure. Now I'm at 1.3 bar costant but to have this pressure I had to tighten too much the old wastegate. I'll see with this one.


Changed also bulb light in tacho instrument. I had used first time the w2w, but it was too dark. Now I had OSRAM 2723 2,3W 12V W2X4, the right one, really important difference:
