Hi all are there someone that has a 3ct with a intercooler. How much of a difference did it make in power and fuel consumption. I have one in my 92 SC but the engine has gone. Was looking around for another engine and the next best is the 3RZ wich will cost me in the area of 30k. Fuel consumption on the 3rz better than my old 22r but still not good. Lots of guys have changed their 3rz to lexus V8. Is the 3rz so under powered and heavy on fuel to need such a change. At this stage i am considering to stay with the 3ct but add an intercooler.

Het jy al met Hoppy gepraat oor die 2.5 FOrd ombouing?

A 4x4 is merely a machine that enables you to get stuck further away from civilization.

Dit lyk my da is ni veel mense wat van di 3ct engines gebruik ni. Dit is regtigwaar n baie nice engine. Het so om en by 150 000km gedun met dit. Het groei pyne gehad met warm word ma dit als uitgesort teen di tyd. Dit loop baie stil vir n diesel en is lyk my di ligste op brandstof van al di ombouings wat al gedun is. Ek het darm nu info gekry om my toere teller te laat werk. Het altyd max 110 mkh gery ek wou ni di diesel te hoog laat rev het ni. Het nu maar besluit om di 3rz maar eers te los en n intercooler op di 3ct te sit. Sal di diesel pomp ordentlik laat stel en dan op di dyno laat sit om te sien hu doen sy. Sal di info hi plaas da ander ook kan sien. Da is ni veel info van di 3ct op di forums ni.
