Further to my post at 29443 and the helpful responses posted their, I am now being confused!

Denco (Berri Diesel Service in SA) say they will fit a watercooled version turbo if I want it BUT the Schwitzer Triton turbo conversion does not require it because the diesel engine runs cool enough not to warrant water cooling - only the petrol engines that use turbo boosters need it.
MTQ in Adelaide sell the Mitsubishi after market turbo which IS watercooled - I don't want to spend money I don't need to - it's $600 more than the Schwitzer.

Which one? Anyone had a non-turbo Triton or non-turbo Pajero converted?????????

Thanks (again)

All I can say is that in my particular case, Berri Diesel was right. They removed my water cooled Nissan turbo and replaced with the "dry" (the term they use for non-water cooled) Schwitzer turbo. Also, the later-model Nissan 4.2TD (series III) changed from water-cooled to dry as well.
I have great faith that Berri Diesel Service would not steer you in the wrong direction and you'd be well advised to follow their advice.

The Denco non water cooled turbo I fitted to my 80 series is still going even after I sold it. Has now done around 30000 km since fitting.
Can recommend them.
