Theer was one for sale either on here or the 4wd action forum a few days ago.
Do a search on the 4wd action forum there is a thread about 20 pages long both for and against different makes.
I have a Safari DTRONIC which I think is the best. Am fitting a 3in exhaust next week so willl publish some figures when I get the dyno results.
Wont help you tho cos its a real 4x4 a Toymota 4.2TD
You will get several replies probaly to the contrary but I would be hesitant about chipping a 3.0.

you will need a chip to allow for the retuning of the exhaust.
so get the chip first and save for the exhaust.
the chip will make alot of difference buy its self but when you have the exhaust fitted later thats when the real diference is seen.
whe i sold my 3ltr o removed the chip and exhaust and drove it to sydney to trade it.
i could not believe how slow it was.

the chip alone will not affect the fuel ecconomy but when you fit the exhaust the fuel ecconomy will be much better. i noticed when towing the camper a reduction of around 3-4 ltrs per hundred.

Hi Greg,

I have a Dtronic and 3” exhaust without cat and muffler. 128hp at the wheels, standard is 95hp. I chose the Safari chip because at the time it was the only one available and was already proven. The reports I’ve heard say that most of the others, DPChip, Steinbauer, Tunit etc are all good, but some of them need to be “wired in”, where the Safari is plug and play. Very easy to remove without any tell tail signs that it was ever there. Depending on your driving style, you shouldn’t see any change in fuel consumption. My last tank was 11.5L/100km city driving only. Highway is slightly higher, normally around 12 – 12.5L/100km.
I don’t think there is any more risk to the motor, because the Dtronic only alters fuel timing and duration. Beware of any chip that alters boost with a ZD30 Patrol.
Yes, I would go with the chip first.
