Hi Jaztaz,

nice work on the truck.

like to see the 5in lift. who is doing it. how much it costing.

i have an 04 RV, wanting to give it a little lift, but everone costing a small fortune. proberly go with the EFS next year 3in coils, 2in rear springs Superiorengineering extended shackles.

Just put on a 3" exhaust a few days ago as well. (Local WA manufacture, bolt on mandrel bend mild steel, turbo back, no large muffler). Sounds nice :-). Does rev free'er than before. No dyno or anything, but does feel livelier on the 'seat of the pants dyno'.

Plus without the '44gallon drum muffler' under there any more, there's all this extra space. Wonder if I can fit an extra water tank or something in that space.

Chip will have to wait till the next payday probably.

G'day John
Very nice unit. Who did your exhaust? I want to chip my TD 100 Cruiser and add a 3" system and am looking for someone in Perth who'll do a good job.

It was Mettams Mufflers in Morley. Hope the info helps.

Yep, thanks John. I'll give them a call. I must check back through my Western 4WDriver issues (a top mag....just about the best, I reckon) to see what Nick Underwood had to say about the various performance chips.
Thanks again

After putting on a Taipan exhaust, he trailed the Steinbauer, TUnit and Diesel Power chips. Now this is all from memory, so do check out the magazine articles to confirm but....
- The exhaust on it's own didn't give much more power, but smoothed
things out on the dyno charts. (ie: less dips/rises, smoother power and
torque curves).
- Steinbauer unit was expensive, as two needed for the V8. Had a minor
cold start issue (can't remember what it was though). Cost was over 2K
- TUnit gave similar power/torque increases to the Steinbauer, but
obviously cheaper as only a single unit required. Cost about 1.2K
- Diesel Power had to be turned up to full to get same power/torque as
TUnit on its middle setting (5 out of 9). Cheaper though, about 1K

The last article he went back to the TUnit (his preferred option) and tried different settings on it (the user settable dial from 1 - 9) to see how it affected fuel economy. His conclusion was basically to tune the vehicle for power, but then drive it for economy (ie: drive smothly, don't plant the foot and use all the new power, short shift gears, etc) to get the best economy.

Again, double check with the Western 4WDer articles in case I've remembered something wrong - a definite possibility.

I ended up putting in the exhaust (which is a 'Manta' brand bolt on I should have mentioned). I haven't had it on a dyno, so all by the 'seat of the pants dyno'. The exhaust did make it seem a little smoother, but no noticeable power increase. Interestingly though the fuel economy improved from about 13.7L/100km down to about 13.2L/100km on my regular home-to-work run on the Roe Hwy (not a lot of stop start).

I installed the DPChip after a few weeks (cost $1.3K). Simple to plug in myself. The install took about 10 min. It has 7 user selectable settings, with the default being on 4. After speaking to the suppliers, and informing them of the exhaust, they reccomended moving it up a notch to position 5 or 6 which I did. Definitely a noticable increase in power.

Again interestingly the fuel economy improved slightly to 13.0L/100km on the same run. If I use too much righ foot, it returns into the low 13's, but I'm pretty happy. Definitely a lot better to drive now.

PS: I was looking at a TUnit as Nick found the best bang-for-your buck of those he tested on his TD V8 cruiser. One WA supplier had no interest ("Oh, I guess I can order one in for you if you want"), and another wouldn't supply it without doing a tune on a laptop. When asked what dyno he used, etc I was told he didn't use one. I then asked what/how he tunes it without a dyno, and was told if I didn't like the way he did things not to bother - so I didn't.

Fourbys doing the work, mostly Superior Eng. gear.
Adjustable Tuff Dogs,
5" springs,
Superior dropped radius arms,
Superior panhard,
7 leaf 'articultion' rear springs, (articulation & leaves in same sentence??)
Superior ex. shackles,
Brake prop. valve extension,
few other bits & pieces as well.
Should be done by Monday 22nd. Then another 3 or so weeks to get it to Perth. Then drive home after that (another 1600 ks).

Can PM you the quote if you like.
Regards Jaz.

Thanks again John. Where did you get your DP unit from? I haven't shopped around much for the various units yet, but WA Automotive Specialists in Balcatta have quoted $1430 for a DP.....they also do a power package for $2900 which includes the DP unit, a mandrel bent 3" exhaust (including dump pipe) and full set-up on their dyno. United Fuel Injection in Rivervale recommended a Rapid unit at $1550. Mettams quoted about $1500 for a 3" system, but not including the dump pipe....about another $600!!! Anyhow, I'll keep sniffing around and see what I can come up with.

Getting slightly off the 70/200 series topic here (as you have a 100 series). I'll send you a PM with some details.

Now there are some nice set up rigs, would lke to see some more wagons, Ive been tossing up the idea of doing a dual cab/tray conversion to a 76 wagon. Has anyone seen or done something similar yet?

cheers,

This post is making me want to change cars but if I tell my wife anything about it she would kill me as I have already spent a fortune on the 105.
Also we have kids so I would need the personnel carrier. Any pic's of these would be nice to see.
Keep the post with your awesome cars going as I always like to dream:thumb:
