Approximatley 3 weeks ago I queried putting a turbo on my 250,000 k troopy on this froum.All the replies stated that I would never look back if I did.
Well i did put a Safari turbo on and you were spot on,the difference in the sand and on hills is suprising considering you just pushing more air into the motor.
Thankyou all for your replies and help.

I was originally going to put on a Garrett,however due to the proximity of the mechanical services that installed the Safari it was more a choice of convenience than particular brand.

OK,
The turbo certainly make them a better vehicle to drive and much cheaper than updating.

Not just more air, Terry but more fuel because there is more air. Safari would have run it on their dyno and made some slight changes to fuel metering, which is normal.

Yes, I apprecite the complexities of the turbo its was really a flippant remark because the basis is more air.

Perhaps the added weight of the turbo increased yout tyre contact area in the sand?

Maybe its not about tyres.
