    Ha ha... love your persuasion. Unfortunately I have a serious appointment that weekend with my wife for our 28th wedding anniversary. I want a 29th!!

    I seriously want to get together with everyone on this forum but if I passed up on this weekend, I'd be looking for permanent residence in one of your garages.

    I love my 6.5 but to be political correct I have to state I love my missus more

    Kindest regards

    Its ok, these thoughts will pass in time and all will be well. I have cleared a space under the bench in case you are able to harden up in time.

    After reading the WHOLE thread today, my question is : is it mandatory to have the GVM upgrade when doing the 6.5 conversion?
    Also, if possible, I would like to see, in the metal, some of these vehicles. I'm in UFTG victoria, as I'm contemplating such a move.

    If your gvm is over nameplate then you run the risk of not being insured, and if you are unlucky and end up being put over a weigh bridge by the RTA, they will fine you and put you off the road.
    I am in knoxfield, so pm me your contact details and we can meet. Mine is the 6.5 optimiser n/a manual conversion.

    Hey mate, have a look on the forum for the thread about the big meetup on MB's property. I think it's called AB's donk party thread.
    I know of 2 6.5s attending there and would be a nice chance to meet a lot of forum members.

    Guys, just back from a trip up to Butcher Country in Vic high country, thought I would share some stats.

    Fuel econony 7.6km/L (22mpg)
    Typical EGT cruising 240Deg C, ambient temps 28 Deg C, speed 100k/hr
    Rad temp 64 DegC
    Oil temps circa 68 Deg C
    Max EGT under hard acceleration at 130km/hr long uphill pull, 550 DegC
    Max temps off road low range. long climb, 88 Deg C rad, 92 Deg C oil, 400 Deg C EGT's
    Mix of 400klm highway and 165 klm low range - 5km/hr sort of stuff.
    Pretty happy with these numbers.
