Mine is the same. TB's is the same after we fitted his Turbo, actually his is worse than before.

I put it down to you have more power now and use it more... phukt aint it..

I had my pump and injectors done thinking that would help....

Truckster Truckster Truckster Truckster, here you are leading with your lip again, I've had a Toyota with well over 400,000 on it and the motor was never touched, since sold has done another 40,000 and still going strong 4.2 Deisel.

I now have a 4.2T GU and hope to get simular k's out of the motor (if I keep it that long) as for fuel get as low as 10lt per100, average on a trip 12 per 100, and pushed get 14.5.

Rex

I've posted this before and don't mind doing it again if it makes you sleep any easier.

I turbo'd a 1HZ troopy approx 2 years ago which weighs 3.5t when fully loaded.

The conversion included pump, aneroid and injectors. No Dyno.

Fuel Consumption prior to conversion was:

0 -100Kph 12.5 Litres per 100kms
100 - 120kph 13.5 Litres per 100 kms

Post conversion:

0 -100Kph 13.5 Litres per 100kms
100 - 120kph 15.5 Litres per 100 kms

I then had a mandrel bend, straight exhaust fitted.

Did dick all either way on the fuel consumption, however it almost eliminated the turbo lag entirely which is great.

I agree with 'truckster' that its most probably how you apply the 'pedal to the metal' , or more likely whether your tongue is pointing up or down, who knows - its all a mystery.

As to the Kilowatt thing, weeeeeeeeeeeeell thats better left up to someone of Trucksters profile to comment on.

Regards

I then had a mandrel bend, straight through exhaust fitted.
