Yeah,
You can’t afford not to buy one???
Still it would be nice to have a 270KW 80 series.

I'd say poo. There would be a lot more involved than just bolting on a blower to get them neddies...

No that is it Apparently. Sorry let me clarify 270KW is the most power you can expected from this kit. The power obtained will be between 225/ 270 KW.

If you had Extractors, intercooler, reprogrammed the fuel system. Then the gain would be up around the 270 mark, if it were stock standard then it would be down at the 225 mark

C.A.P.A perfoformance. Supply it/ fit them.

Mate it's easy to get power out of an engine, in fact 270 KW is dead easy from a 4.5L. Just try and make the engine last more than a week before rebuild - thats where real engineering comes into play.

When you realise that FITCH will increase power by 10% for a measley $500 why would you spend $7,900 on something that COULD harm your motor.Fitch in a nut shell will save you by having 70% less pollutants entering your engine oil 50% less pollutants into OUR atmosphere and also save you at least a litre of fuel every 100klms you travel. Makes sense to me. Look it up www.fitchcatalyst .com.au

i just had a look, i think this is the unit this guys called skip uses. I read a review on his aussie 4x4 site caled skips 4x4, he claims the thing does give more power with fuel econ. cheap too.

F4 what are you saying. How is it easy to get 270KW out of an engine
Supercharging is the easiest way to get big power gains out of a stock engine

Some of the other way’s include, Port & polish, bore out exhaust/ intake replace valves, new cam, Flat top race pistons, Ignition and fuel delivery system (Bigger injectors for 1), Computer upgrade, dyno tuning, Nitro injection.

The list is endless and most involve striping the engine and require an engine shop to do, and is it cheap Fuc* NO. Please enlighten me as to how it is easy to get 270KW out of a land cruiser.

Bill mate I was just pointing out that that is fairly impressive to get that power gain out of a 4.5 cruiser. As for harming the motor 7.5 Psi should not be a problem most engines will take 6Psi stock, I no a bloke who is running 12.5psi on a commodore eco V6 and has done 120,000k’s with it motor is fine

Remember guys and gals only the users of fitch realise the effects it supplys to the user,also remember it has a 90day money back guarentee and after fitting over 800 of these in the illawarra region two came back for a refund only to be shown something ammiss with their engine. After fitting a fitch F300 to a 80srs normal asperated dyno readings went from 54kw at rear wheels to 59kw and smoke vanished from the tail pipe.Also FITCH will prolong the life of any motor because of reduction of pollutants entering the engine oil.My 80srs has now got 480,000klms on the clock fitch fitted at 300,000 and turbo fitted at same milage and still sporting the original injpump.

Hi Exploder, it is easy to get power out of an engine, we have been building ICE for so long that we just follow procedure. Yes it is not cheap to do either, but to put a slight bit of prospective into cheap, if you look at new cars and KW output, you do pay a lot for power, BMW charge $100,000 more for the same outer skin, but stacks more power (plus all the other stuff that goes with power eg brakes suspension etc..) if you make you land cruiser put out more power it aint gonna cost even $20k let alone new car prices on power. So really to get an engineering shop to rebuild your engine it is relitivly cheap, but the point I was atempting to make was that if the engine was not designed for a certain output, it will likley mean shorter engine life. Another point is material and metalurgy technology, it is getting to the stage where engine sizes which used to pump out 100kw for a given engine life, if now outputting 200kw from the same displacement and still giving the same engine life - this is quality engineering. I would argue that the power should be put into economy and therefore a better environomental outcome but this is not where cars are headed right now, it's power power and more power!
