Just wondering if someone could tell me when the gu first came out and what year the 3lt came out and if when the 3lt had the intercooler on it right from the start etc. Thanks. And also where dose the 3lt get its power from, because it has almost the same figers as the 4.2 and it has these fig. at the same revs so it cant be working any harder?More drive'n less talk'n

Kim, you could find this out at redbook. When you look for second hand values they list all the models and variants released each year.

Kim

They always had the intercooler from day 1. Came out in 1998 I think from memory.

Don't know about where the power bit comes from, I'm not a techno head but you will get plenty of feed back from others.

cheers

Can narrow it down a bit more;
The 4.5L petrol came out in beginning of 98, the 4.2 diesel DX (not avail in ST) around the middle of 98, and the 4.2TD in June 1999 (avail in ST wagon). The GU ute came out a bit earlier in 99.
In March 2000, the 3.0L diesel came out as the Series II. The DX was then also avail with the 4.2TD, and I recall they dropped the nat-asp 4.2 diesel from the wagons.
Not sure when they went to the 4.8L petrol.

Hi Kim power from the 3.0lt comes from all sorts of hi tec lovelies like twin ovehead camshafts, four valves per cylender, variable vane turbo, computer controlled fuel delivery etc. compared with the 4.2 which uses 1940,s tecknology.

Billowagga,

That relatively simple technology in the 4.2 means you can fix it in the bush, unlike the 3 litre that would need to be towed to the nearest dealer!

Hi Nissan Man, I fully agree with you but remember times are changing, the latest 4.2's [since they fitted the intercooler] have electronic control of the injector pump and fly by wire throttle.

Bill,

I thought they only had an electronicly monitored, not controlled, injector pump??

The 4.2 is still the best bet in my mind.

Monitoring is no use just on its own, what is the point unles you make some input into fuel delivery and timing,this can only be done when the E.C.M. has control over the injector pump. Nissan has always used the same Bosch/Zexsel as Toyota and have just upgraded tro the electronic governor unit.
