Re: 17" Black Rhino Mint with Cooper Discovery ST tyres x5 - 35k ZAR

Thank you for your comment and you are correct that the smaller sizes are cheaper but if you want the really wide Tyre 305 the price shoots up. I could have gone with a thinner tyre but I wanted the biggest size possible on a Hilux with just a lift. The tyres are massive and look great on the truck ...

Re: 17" Black Rhino Mint with Cooper Discovery ST tyres x5

Hello Frontier 320 Thanks for you comments. I wish I knew that before I bought them from TWT lol. To be honest I am open to offers. The reason for sale is that this used to be my truck but I have split up with my wife and she needs to have the truck. She does not want the running costs of such large...

Re: Engine conversion D4D to 4.0 V6

Once I converted it into BHP it sounds good. What sort of Mods and cost would I be looking at to achieve this?

Re: Engine conversion D4D to 4.0 V6

I just want more power on the road. I chipped my D4D and now it is acceptable but not really enough. Plus my current engine has done 240K Km so thought it might need changing in the not to distant future.

Re: Engine conversion D4D to 4.0 V6

But do you think the connection and wiring between the car loom and the engine loom will be the same? So all I will need to do is plug the V6 engine loom into the existing car loom? Or do you think they might be complete different?

Re: Engine conversion D4D to 4.0 V6

I am sure that the physical swap wont be to difficult. My main concern is the ECU. I assume that there is a engine loom and a main car loom. I am hoping that the connection between the engine loom and car loom is the same regardless of the engine. I did an engine swap in a Ford Fiesta years ago and ...

Re: Engine conversion D4D to 4.0 V6

I have done alot of work to mine already. Stuff like bumpers, suspension, dual batteries, long range tank, lights........... It seems easier to swap the engine then to swap all the rest lol Plus my car was imported from the UK so I am not sure if that effects the resale value. Was hoping to find a r...

Engine conversion D4D to 4.0 V6

Hello All

Has any one done a D4D to 4.0l V6 conversions on a Mk7 Hilux? If so please cn you sent me the links.

I am hoping that all the mounts, spaces, fuel tanks...... are all the same between the two engines but I have no idea so an info would be great.

Many thanks

Re: Air Con randomly working and not working

It turns out to be the engine temp getting to hot and cutting out the AC. I am hoping that servicing the viscous fan will solve the issue :)
