Hi Folks
My Nissan Safri is in need of a bit more get up a go.
It is a SWB set up for winch challenges, it is currently powered by a retuned 4.2 diesel slightly ovewr fueled.
I have been offered a factory turboed 4.2 can anyone give me some info on this motor and has anyone done this change.
Are there any pittfalls to be aware of

If its a Nissan 4.2 its the same engine with a turbo on it.. Would bolt straight into your car now.

If its a turbo 4.2 that would be GU (98 onwards) engine as no GQ had a Turbo TD42 - in aussie anyway...

Pitfalls, Give it to me!

In NZ the 4.2s were availabble with turbo from about the mid 90s as all the Nissans came in from Japan either new or used. I think with that system we seem to have a greater range of models Since I normally compete with cruisers both here and in Aus I have more knowledge of them and most of our trucks are imports and are of a much higher spec than what is offered as new in both countries.
One thing that is obvious since I joined this forum is that all our trucks run much larger tires as a standard fit

So are they imported by Nissan NZ, or as Grey Imports?

They are both.
As the is no car assembly plants in NZ anymore all vehicles come in assembled
Nissan also bring in used vehicles i.e. cars and trucks,there dealers who specialise in them.
Toyota do the same, there used imports are sold under the Toyota Signature badge plus the dealers
The design rules for NZ are so close to the original design rules that it makes no difference.
The parts if you need them are not a problem. Nissan are a little slow. Toyota are better as they recognise there vehicles world wide.
The major difference is that the used inport Cruisers and Patrol / Safari are 24v as apposed to new where some of them are only 12v
24v is better as you only draw half the current, thats good for the winch.
