Well mate of mine couldnt handle the fact I had a Turbo..

So he went and ordered the Denco Kit from Alan at Outback Accessories.. Came in next day! Thats service...

We spent the day fitting it... AND WHAT A DAY..

Snapped TWO exhaust studs, happy with the one at the back bottom where you cant get a decent size drill, then finally got a hole in it, and snapped the EZ out in the hole... He said bleep it, and installed it anyway.. His problem when he has to take it all apart again and
remove head to get stud out.

The Manual G.box model GQ LWB 4.2 had more pipes and hassles than my Auto, and the kit is SO simple to install, including the Complete front to rear 2.5 mandral bent exhaust and straight thru muffler.

It really is a kit anyone with a good toolbox can handle.. Serious, it comes with instructions, and all just pieces together like Meccano!

Weird there are all size nuts/bolts from 8mm to 19mm inc 11,13.,15,16, just odd sizes...

All up it took us 10am to around 6pm. This included drivin around to get
EZouts, new exhaust studs from Nissan($3 each, which I thought was cheap!) and smaller drill, and drop my car off to get air cond fixed and pickin up...!

He has booked it into ARB sthn this Thursday to get final tuning done.

Alan quoted $300 to get the kit fitted, so for a day he saved $300... next
time, PAY THE MONEY!

Agree totally truckster. I would rather work a few hours over time and pay someone else to do this type of work. I like working on my car but get frustrated very easily when things go wrong.

G'day, I was wondering if that Denco kit comes with the boost-compensator mechanism to add to the fuel pump?

No it doesnt, you only need one on a GQ TD42 to go over 12PSI Boost.
It comes with 8 std, and we are both running 10psi, I am going to go 12-14 though.. :D

Mark that worked at ARB Sth ran 20psi for 80,000 that I know of without hassles.

Truckster you have mis-understood me. I'm asking about the fuel/boost compensator (aneroid) that alters fuelling to the pump, depending upon the amount of boost at the time. 8psi is standard, I know, however it does not push that pressure all the time, boost alters with your throttle position.

It didnt have a boost compensator installed. Its std.

Its 8psi at 3000 which is as much as you go, thats what I was getting at. So at say 2000 its 6psi maybe.

If you want to go to 10+ psi, they say you need the Aneroid thing installed, which depending who you talk to is around $2-800... Amazing how prices change....
