For a start, take out the hiclone. Replace it with a lump of wood between the accelerator and the firewall and I think you're problem will be solved! ;-)
What tyre's, size, brand and type do you run
and most importantally what tyre pressures are you running?
Do you have roof racks, spotties etc? Do you carry a lot of gear around with you normally? Is you're air filter clean?
Is it an auto or a manual? If it's an auto is the torqure converter operating correctly? If not you could be losing alot of energy through there. I'm not too sure on the 3.2L jacks, but I would assume they would have an ECU of some type (engine computer). Perhaps a look on a jackeroo forum/website to see if you can run
an on board diagnositic on it, that might tell you if there is a faulty sensor somewhere that is perhaps making the ECU run
rich. Normally you just short two pins out on the ALDL connector (whereever it is in the jack) and it'll flash the engine light on certain ways to tell you fault codes (if there are any) then you should be able to find out what they mean from a jackeroo forum
and it'll at least let you know if there is anything wrong with the engine managment.
The last Question for you would be do you have a safari snorkel
? If so, take the air ram off (the funny bit at the top that lets the air in) and make sure there is no metal restrictor sitting in there (a big washer). If there is, bleep that off straight away.
