Just a quick note with regards to powering up a 4.2 liter Turbo Nissan.

I have just had mine done at Motsons Turbo center and in a word "WOW". I got the 40% option and the difference is amazing. Total dyno figures showed 37% and you can really feel the difference all the way through the rev range and particularly from start off having to use a lot less throttle to get moving. Over taking is easy now just plant it and you are really moving. It feels more like a petrol than a diesel. Fuel economy has also benefited on the highway with figures now down in the 12s per hundred where as before they were always high 13s. Car has been lifted and bigger tires.

The difference in towing is also outstanding easily holding 100km/h towing a 2.5t boat where as before generally only 90km/h was achievable.

All in all money well spent cross at myself for not getting it done sooner.

Kiwi Ray,

The only thing done to it before was I had a 3 inch Mandrel bent exhaust in it. This is why I "only" got 37% more due to the previously fitted exhaust.

I have had the 3" mandrel exhaust with the 3" dropper & through flow muffler fitted. All thi gave me about 22% more torque.
Is this what you had in the first place or when you say 40% increase does that include the 3" upgrade

Yes that is what I had in the first place and then got the turbo done and the tune. After the fitting of the exhaust originally there wasn't that great a difference although you could feel some but it was the tweeking of the turbo that gave the most bang.

I am glad it wasn't just me who thought that sounded like an add.

Absolutely no affiliation at all. I have been contemplating it for 5 years since i bought the car and I had wished I had done it sooner. My mate had a drive of it when I had it done and he too has booked his in to get the same treatment.

Did Motson's give you a before and after Dynomometer graph? If so they should also have suppled before and after EGT readings. If not, get them, else you risk blowing the engine and melting pistons, and they all go real strong right up 'till the end. Especially since you state you are towing 2.5 tonnes and are powering up hills? Horsepower comes at a price, just make sure you have a margin for error with those exhaust temps.

Hi All,

I've not been visiting this forum for a while, so, could I be forgiven for putting in a small plug? "Desert" is dead right about the importance of EGT in turbo-diesels, especially when towing heavy loads. And why not know what it is during actual driving? Please feel free to have a look at my site for more info and prices. Happy travels.
