According to the specs on Redbook the GUII TD42 which started April 2000 produces 23kw more than the GU series I. Does anyone know what was changed on the motor to produce this (its not intercooled both straight turbo). The tourqe remains unchanged. Also did the vehicles tow much differently if anyone has towed with both?

Also has anyone ever been able to buy a car for the prices that redbook suggests, I never have they always seem very low.

Think you'll find series I was non-turbo'd. Also, I don't think the torque figure was the same for both.
When they added the intercooler to it (series III) the power stayed the same , but the torque went up from 330 to 360nm

Perhaps they changed the way they measure power as there are some methedologies for getting different figure from the same engine. I seem to recall ECE or something being one method? The advertising people would appreciate a bigger number to quote regardless of there being no difference.

I think you will find redbook prices to be what the vehicle is worth, then there is the dealer sticker price. Judge the actual value of the car by redbook and work out your trade in vehicle by the same method. This will give you a changeover price, if this changeover price is the same as what the dealer is offering then your in the market for a new car, if not NEGOTIATE till it is the same.

Cheers Trevor.
