i've recently seen a number of cruisers getting around displaying 4200 efi turbo, i've tried to find out information on kw outputs, with no luck. at a guess i would imagine it to be between 180-200 kw, considering the standard petrol engine develops around 150. so if it does produce that much power, does it mean nissan are falsly advertising their new 185kw 4.8 as the truck with the most power? i hope not as i am a proud patrol owner.

I may stand corrected here, but as far as I knew Toyota had a 4500 petrol (165kw), a 4200 diesel (96kw) and a 4200 turbo intercooled diesel (151kw). The only 4200 efi turbo I could think of is an early 80 series 4200efi petrol with an aftermarket turbo. I think there are aftermarket turbos for the 4500 petrol also, but as far as I'm aware Toyota only did a factory turbo for the diesel.

I believe the new '78 series Crusiers now have an option of a 4.2 turbo diesel (122kw), and they display Di-TURBO 4200EFI stickers.

thanks guys, they were the only options that i thought were available until i saw and heard one. to start with the sound it made was certainly a petrol motor(turbo whistle), and secondly turbo diesels are just called direct injection(di), and finally the term efi is for petrol motors only, i have seen this signage on around a dozen cruisers and they have all been brand new, being a patrol man i couldnt tell you what series or model they are though.

if this is true, i feel like a fool, however i would like to think i can hear the difference between petrol and diesel motors, i hope it is not true, because that would be a pretty dynamic motor, and as a nissan man i would be some what envious of toyota

The 4.2 factory turbo in the new model troopie is the same donk used in the TD 100 Series LC. The article Sean was referring to gives the power output at 122kW@3400rpm.

As stated the engine is the same as the one in the 100 Series without the intercooler. The EFI comes from the fact that the injection pump is electronically controlled, ie. there is an engine ECU much like the 3l TD Patrol. Andreas

thanks for the responses, i understand the engine you are talking about in the troopie,no worries. however, i still believe the new wagon(only), has a turbo petrol motor, as previously stated i've heard one driving and it certainly sounded like a petrol, sorry for flogging a dead horse if i am wrong, but i am facinated by the concept, as i said it is the brand new wagons only,not troopy. does anyone own one out there?
