Yes it is Zepplin's old truck......

I have been in discussion with Hoppy for a while now and we are trying something fairly new (I think!).

Anyhow, the plan is to put in a D4D with a manual diesel pump. Hoppy reckons he can get it to run just as sweetly - if not better than the electronic system.....
I want to get away from management systems as there are no real gurus here to sort it if there are issues.
This also means new gearbox, diffs etc.

Hopefully I can pick it up in 4 weeks time! :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

Thabo ek wil die diesel roete gaan. Alhoewel die V6 baie lekker trek en klink is my cruiser (troopy) 'n diesel donkie en ek wil standardiseer.

Ek het ook gevind dat L1 bietjie vinnig is (vir my) as dit kom by trails en moeilike dele (nie dat ek vreeslik ondervinding het daarmee nie!)

Ek gebruik die voertuig meestal vir jag en visvang doeleindes maar wil ook he dat hy geskik moet wees vir overlanding indien ek met beide voerteie wil ry (ek het 3 kinders en 'n skoonma wat saam ry!)

Ek het oorweeg om 'n waentjie te koop maar my tyd is van so aard dat ek hom te min gaan gebruik om die onkoste te regverdig. Ek het toe besluit om eerder die geld op my trokkie te spandeer.

Gevolglik kan ons met 2 voertuie ry (as dit nodig is) en is ek nie altyd gebind om van ander afhanklik te wees as ons bietjie wil toer nie. Ek het dan 'n tweefe backup voertuig indien daar 'n probleem sou ontstaan en ek kan presies volgens my behoeftes beplan.

Die feit dat beide voertuie diesel sal wees maak dit makliker as daar ekstra brandstof saam gery moet word en my vrou kry dan ook die geleentheid om te bestuur!

Branfstof gaan dubbrld kos - dit weet ek maar ek aanvaar dit maar ek het die somme gemaak en dit werk ook nie soveel meer uit as om 'n waentjie te huur nie!

Tyd sal leer!

En my brandstofverbruik behoort te verbeter!

Good afternoon gents and ladies.

I recently baught a 97 hilux dc sfa.

I baught it with a 7mge motor with gotech management and a w58 gearbox.

My problem is that the guy I baught it from just loaded a base map, and thus the bakkie is very heavy on fuel and struggles with cold starting in the morning. I have got a serial cable and went onto the ecu, thus don't know how to configure the ecu.

Is there anybody that uses the same setup that can assist me with a copy of their gotech ecu map or a guide or assistance on how it must be set up.

Thanks for reading it is much appreciated.

Regards

Hi Morgan,

Try the search function of the forum. I have no idea who could help and honestly I found it difficult to find a dictator guru that could help in my case.

Hope you come right :thumbup:
