I thought I'd post up my exhaust. It's a 2.5 inch system with a Herrod Motorsport Muffler.

Not much has changed with my Runner lately, but I have been having alot of fun with it!

I have also joined Sydney District 4x4 which has been great.

Here's a pic of it all nice and dirty

I am wanting to fit a winch to it, but it has a non winch bar. Any tips?

Got an early Fathers Day gift today. SAAS Boost Gauge :)

It shows the boost maxes out at 13 to 14 psi.

Is that what a Denco kit usually put's out, or has it had the boost raised?

Yeah Eraser mentioned that over on 4x4 earth.

It only gets to 13 psi if I really rev it.

I usually dont go over 3k rpm and the boost is at around 9 there, do you reckon it's o.k seeing as I never really rev it high enough to get the boost that high?

As he said over there, drop it below 10, otherwise you will be up for a $3000 engine rebuild

On another note, I have wired the gauge off the same power as my CB but this means the gauge lights up as soon as I switch on accessories.

Does anyone know where I can get power for it so the gauge only lights up when I turn on the headlights?

Thought of that, but I was hoping there was something a bit easier to get to without ripping half the dash out.

Not really interested in giving it a flogging.

I bought it so I can get myself and the kids to some more isolated camping spots.
