Hi Scott,

Had one fitted to a 1HZ motor a couple of years ago. As far as fuel economy went I got better milage with it on than before as you will not need to put your foot down as hard all the time to get the same performance.

As far as heat goes, the turbo will not make the engine run much hotter. What it will do is move some of the heat from iside the engine and exhaust to the outside of the engine and reposition it to another point in the engine bay. The result will be that heat may be closer to other components like brake booster, clutch booster and batteries. A good turbo installer will put in a heat shield to protect other bits of important stuff. From experience this does a bit but will not actually cool the parts much. I have got around this in a couple of vehicles by buying a metre of heat rated 70 mm tubing to deliver heaps of cold air from outside and dumping it around the turbo and vital bits (brake and clutch booster).

Price should be about 3200-4000 depending on who installs it.

Engine life may be shortened by a system that delivers too much boost however most companies will limit the boost and torque to 30%. Aparently this will give the best ratio of power to engine life.

try the following for a quote:

I have a DTS system on my 91 Series 80, cost me about $3200 and fitted by a specialist in the Southern Highlands of NSW.

As far as fuel economy goes I haven't noticed much difference but I do use less when I work the motor hard, ie going up hill, overtaking, towing etc.

Haven't noticed any difference with the heat / cooling system. If I travel long distances, every time I stop I lift the bonnet to let the heat out and motor to cool (a through back to my Army training).

Unfortunately I can not give any advise on who in Adelaide would fit the system but DTS do have offices around the country. It was the best accessory that I have ever fitted; however, go with a name brand and someone who offers good after sales service.

I've got a 2001 100 series diesel and have just had a DTS system fitted back in March. The kit was purchased through MTQ Brisbane for $2500 and fitting through one of their fitters was $500. I have only done about 7000Km since then and have had no problems.

It was dynoed after fitting and this returned a figure of 86kw at the wheels. The fitter reckons that I got about a 40-45% power increase.

Fuel economy is about the same when driving normally, but has improved when towing. Cooling has not been affected.

I went through MTQ as they have company owned offices around Australia, so that if someting was to go wrong when travelling the repair would be less of an issue.

When I save the pennies up I am going to get an aftermarket exhaust system fitted and get the injectors and pump serviced which should further improve performance and economy .
