    I was lucky to score a sII loom and made my conversion more factory... everything is plug and play.

    Good luck with all this mate.

    Had another Internet result

    I happened to find a bit of a bargain last night, I jumped onto GQ owners forum on Facebook at just the right time.

    Found an Exceedy Tough Clutch for a TD42 with hardly any use and a brand new Thrust bearing...

    That's another item crossed off the list

    Guys, quick question.......

    The HT18 turbo, is this any good?

    I am building a stock standard 1999 GU TD42t motor, inter-cooled which i am dropping in my GQ and in order to get it mod plated i need the standard Nissan turbo set up.

    Hence I am after your thoughts and experiences with HT18 or Safari Turbo set ups.

    Thanks in advance

    I logged onto ebay to check the progress of my recent purchases of an oil catch can and a pillar pod for my EGT and Boost gauges and just got the bargain of a lifetime, eBay TD42t lift pump, $15 + $10 postage…. Boom --- Sold, that saves me over $200 at Patrol-a-part …

    The HT18 is fine mate, no power house but a good place to stat and fair easy to get your hands on from guys buying bigger turbos. If its just for mod plating then fit what ever you can find. you should pick up a HT18 for very little. Good luck mate.

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    Hey Andy, great write up so far.

    I adapted my TB42e loom to suit the TD42t. It was super simple and I retained all my factory electrics. I'd recommend it.

    GQJETT,

    Yes thanks mate, i did read your thread on this and we communicated through the messaging on this site, it was you that convinced me to just run with the TB loom, so i think thats the way im heading to be honest. Just one question, what did you do with your ECU from the TB. Did you manage to just unplug it ? im guessing i wont be needed as there will be no TPS MAF EFI nothing ??

    I may well hassle you for some advise if i get a bit stuck a bit nearer the time if that's ok, if you are near me in Skye, i can also supply beer if you would be willing to lend me a hand if i get super stuck ?

    I am pretty sure you can be rid of the ecu and it is worth big money to sell... The only advantage I have is I have the clocks that have the water in fuel light and the glow plug light but I would not be bothered if I was to do it again and go the way Chappy did.

    Ahh yes silly me, I had forgotten that we spoke. I just left my ECU in, it doesn't bother me sitting there.

    I'm from the northern suburbs but I'm down in Mt.Eliza/Frankston quite a bit so if needed I can swing by and lend a hand, it's a good excuse to see some mates down that way.

    To be honest it's super super simple, I recently helped a mate with his and we had it running within an hour. If you like shoot me a PM and I'll give you my phone number so you can call if you have any dramas.
