4x4 Direct Surf Project

Pieter, you may not complain, Laangebaan is small :laugh2: And Cape Town is far :D: Don't fret, I get 5-5,5 in town as well, whilst on the open road 8,6 unladen, and 6,6 fully laden with off-road trailer in tow, both @ 100-105. What ECU do you run? Also, for better cooling, consider 20mm spacers on...

Re: Hilux sfa lexus ombouing

Chev gaan meer krag maak, en sodoende dorser wees. Lexus maak oorgenoeg krag vir daai bakkie. Hou maar by Toyota, lexus is gesog en daar is 'n mark vir ordentlike conversions. Tans is die beste waarde vir geld die VVTi, gewire met ECU vir rondom 18k. Dan moet alles nog gedoen word, mountings, ratkas...

Re: Swartvark raak varklikker.....der!!!!

Lekker Pajero met bonnet spacers.... Ek het hom uitgecheck ja. :thumbup: Ai, jy onthou te goed.... Het intussen die spacers met 10mm gesak en dit lyk baie beter - was nooit bedoel om 'n feature te wees nie :D My neef het die autobox op sy Hilex '90s, ook op 33's. Hy reken sy revs is so 2200rpm op 1...

Re: Swartvark raak varklikker.....der!!!!

As ek reg onthou is dit 3200rpm@120km/h. Ook met 33"s. Jy moet met GPS kyk hoor. Jou afstand gaan korter lyk op jou voertuig se odometer.... Omtrent 10%. Odo wys 1km/h stadiger as GPS op 120kph, so dis seker naby genoeg :D: Laasnaweek Bellville-Bredasdorp-Bellville gedoen teen 100-110kph en 7,0012k...

Re: Nog n Lexus in n SFA

Ek stem saam dat die filter te klein is. Wil hom op die dyno sit en kyk wat gebeur tussen die standaard filter en K&N. As daar n groot verskil is sal ek kyk na groter Donaldson. Kan ongelukkig nie die doel sien van n K&N op n 4x4. te veel stof wat hy deurlaat. Jy is reg met die K&N ini stof - hy ka...

Re: Swartvark raak varklikker.....der!!!!

Ou Swartvark gee my 7.2km/liter tussen Gordonsbaai en Mosselbaai teen so 110-130km/h. Ek's nog heel happy na 4 jaar van Sports. :thumbup: Lekker man! Wat hardloop jou revs @110 & @130? Ek kry tans 7km/l opi ooppad met my spits Pajero, maar my revs sit op 2700 rond @ 110km/h - nogals op 33"..... FYI...

Re: 2.7 4x4 Wit-olifant

As dit net oor die petrol gaan, hou hom! Andersins, daar is geen twyfel dat die CRV die koning van softroaders was 10-15 jaar terug nie - ek het self 'n gen1 gehad, en het net goeie memories en my vrou oe en aa nog steeds as ons ene sien, maar is te klein vir ons gesin van 6. Enjins het nie einde ni...

Re: Lexus V8 word warm in sand?

Bonnet scoops are useless, but a vent performs as per its name, it should vent heat at little or no speed. I added 2" spacers on the hinges to allow the heat to dissapate once parked, and made a huge difference. With all the bash plates etc the engine couldn't breathe properly, now that has been res...

Re: Lexus V8 word warm in sand?

Sandry maak dat jou enjin bitter hard werk,en in 'n rivier waar jy geen spoed/lugvloei het, is dit die ergste!! Op Atlantis hardloop my lexus lekker, maar as ek hom boor, raak hy ook maar vinnig warm. Dan ploeter ek maar rustig rond vir 'n minuut of twee. Daar is 'n paar goed. Fans is belangrik, maa...

Re: Lexus getting hot

Bad news is that these motors don't like getting hot and regularly blow a gasket if they run hot. Good news is it's more economical to put another motor in than to repair an existing one. Overheating can be a couple of things: Check the intake manifold is firmly on and sealed- they run very hot if ...

Re: lexus v8

Thanks ! In general at 120 km/h I am at about 2500 RPM in 5th and get @ 6km/l - 6.5km/l.

Re: lexus v8

Sorry to revive an old thread, but this is just tooo interesting :crazy: On my 1UZ Pajero/Plexus/Toyero/Pajexus/Lejero (ex 2.8 TDi), I got 6km/l - 31" running 2600rpm @ 110km/h(GPS). I was also hoping for 7-8 km/l, especially running with nice low rpms. I was told to run at higher rpms. At 3500rpms ...
