I have a DTS on my troopy. I have been very happy with it and with company who have answered many stupid questions with great thought and patience.

I have Denco system on my GQ... LOVE IT, even the wife says its a different car!

Apart from being cheaper than the DTS, and the salesman knowing what he was selling (I went to DTS Dande and the thing behind the counter had ZERO IDEA on any questions!! YMMV) and coming with a complete new exhaust, it puts out more power down low than the DTS and Safari units. So if thats what you want, then go with it, if you want more mid to high then maybe if your richer go with DTS.

Have had mine for a while, but the only thing is that warranty only covers up to 8psi boost.. Intercooler goes on early new year. Custom made Same as DTS specs, but more volume, 1/2 the price!

Got this of the Denco web site Truckster?
"Intercoolers are only of benefit on engines which are using high boost pressures and therefore encountering high charge air temperatures. Denco Turbo Systems are set at a low boost of 50 KPA.
Intercooling at this low boost pressure is of little or no use as the difference between charge air temperature and the ambient temperature is not great enough to get the temperature siphon off effect. "
Will you be turning up the boost to get a gain from intercooler.
Don't want you to waste your money on that intercooler.

G'day Joe.
I turbocharged my 100 series 6 months ago with a DTS unit and couldn't be happier.Just finished an 8,000k trip and returned average 12.5lt/100k compared to about 16lt/100k from my mates standard 100 gxl,both towing trailers.Mine now doesn't need throwing back a gear or two every incline and doesn't blow smoke under load.
Yeah, I'm happy.

Hi Joe

Check what Turbo both these companies are going to install in your 4WD. I wouldn't be surprised if they both use GARRET turbocharges (everyone else seems too) and if they both use the same turbo then go for the cheaper one. Its the actual turbocharger you should be most worried about, plumbing e.c.t. is second findle, im pretty sure that the hoses used by all companies are exactly the same (i.e meet necessary standards) , though not to be discounted.

Just a though that might pay off.

DTS use Mitsubishi turbo's not Garret. Have one on my Hilux and could not be happier. Best money I've ever spent. Running 10 psi not a problem in 80000km's.

Joe, spend the extra loot and get a 3" exhaust at same time, makes a big difference, and there's plenty of room to fit on the 100 series. Extra noise isn't that bad! Certainly improved multivalve Toyota turbo. Happy Christmas

Denco System also comes with complete exhaust system in the price of the system..
which works out to be around $500-$900(dependign on what exhaust place you go to!) cheaper...

Thanks for all the responce. Still probably leaning towards the Denco system as I like the idea of the low down power compared to the DTS.
Just had the tappets and pump timing done the mechanic found two more cylinders for me Its amazing what a well set up motor will do. ( It only has 48,000 ks so its nearly run in.
Have a good Xmas
Joe

Joe, a point to think about is a super charger far superior than a turbo. Has better low down pull right from idle, all parts are sevicable, no idling down to cool the turbo, more torque than a turbo with a intercooler, if something goes wrong take the belt off and keep driving, unlike a turbo when they let go no more driving. I S/C my diesal patrol and couldnt be happier have done some big trips towing a camper trailer and have had no problems at all. If you do a lot of towing they really come into there own. They also love it in soft sand with out flogging the motor. Col
