It isn't actually a Nissan motor, but an L76 6 litre Gen 4 GM-H V8.

How much power does he want? Wasn't the V8 enough?

Some people have too much money to waste.

Wizard in my experience people who spend this sort of money on a vehicle usually have no money in the bank or investments for retirement.

That is true Donks, but you can help set your kids up as my parents did for me.

Thanks Rob, have been looking at doing same in mine but no-one around here has been able to give clear indications as to power and torque figures I may expect. I now have something to work with.

Prolly a little late now though as mine goes in, in the morning for a little touch up of the old 4.2 mill. With similar KW to the 6lt motor coming out of the 4.2 it would be hard to justify the swap to n/a 6lt but the blown version that's right up my alley LOL!!!

Regards, Trevor.

You should have gone to the Outback Challenge at Broken Hill a couple of weeks ago. ALL of the lead vehicles were Patrols and the one that one the event was a GU with a 6 litre Corvette (I think) motor and it really howled!!! Jean-creaming sorta stuff!!!!! hahahaha

NIKE (just do it!)......You know you want to.....

Cheers

Look at the figures Bill, the 6lt LS2 is only (said very loosely) getting what I am getting at the back wheels out of my 4.2 diesel. Absolutely no justification to going this route unless you did the blower at the same time. This would at least give you something for your bucks. I used this same justification against the 6.5 chev conversion and we are talking very similar dollars between the two conversions.

Turns out my old 4.2 has passed a compression test with flying colours and I will now address the "lost" torque that I am experiencing at the moment via a pump rebuild and if the missing torque is not there then it is onto the turbo as they think I may have dropped an exhaust blade on the turbo, something that has been known to occur in others with similarly modified turbo's. Add it all up if I need to do the lot, and I was 1/2 way to a new 6lt LS2 but without the 360 000 km on the crank.

Anyway, I will see what happens and keep the above link for "research purposes" only hehehe.

Cheers, Trevor.
