Hi.

I just had my 2.5 D4D chipped by SAC. It's made a huge difference.

Was just wondering... do the 2.5 and 3.0 D4D bakkies have the same drive trains? Will the power and torque increase put enough extra strain on the system to significantly reduce the life?

There will be no significant additional strain on the drive train. What will affect it's longevity is a rough or hard driving style - ideally you should try convert the extra power into gas mileage with a lighter foot. :winkx:

Same drive train. Even for the 4lt V6 so there are no issues there. Only gear ratios are adapted.

Dean, out of interest: how old (kilos) is your bakkie? Did you do anything else to it after you had it chiped (eg. service, change exhaust, tires, etc.)

Hi Pieta

The mileage is about 265k and a 2005 model.

I also had the cat removed and replaced the exhaust.

The vehicle just had a service.

I have just bought her and am going through a slow process of making her pristine.

Thanks for all the feedback. Glad the extra power isn't going to be too much... because it has made such a difference
