    Two heads, two lots of camshafts, an engine balancing shaft. Yep, all good.

    Unfortunately not. 13.5 on premium 98 and 15lph on 91.
    But it's on 275/65/17's which is over an inch bigger than stock in diameter and width..

    You won't know what to do with the power after driving a ZD30.

    Yep have to agree.... No longer have to plan my overtaking moves minutes in advance.... just plant my foot and off she goes. Really enjoying driving the V6 petrol Paj. Economy wise, get around 15l/100 back and forth to work and best Ive had is 12.5l/100 over a long journey. Not unhappy with that as the td42 aversges 14.5-16l/100 and me old TB42 was 16-18l/100

    So a small update.
    Not jumping into full build yet as were chasing a fuel issue.
    Seem it's picking up it's rich at the cats and not dropping into a lean burn cycle.
    So could be a few things.
    Spark plugs look ok but being veridium my brother says then can be hit and miss..

    Sensors all seem to be working fine.

    So will check fuel pressure and hopefully it's a simple relife valve playing up.

    So once we nut this issue we should increase fuel economy.. which is good..
    Cheers

    Only a few weeks.
    Being Ti it's bloody nice. So many creature comforts..
    Ride is good for its age.
    Better than the patrol.
    Apart from the rich issue above mate.. it's good.
    I do have a small niggle with the rear passenger door..
    Once you lock and unlock the doors, the outside handle doesn't seem to engage untill you open the door from the inside..
    And there are a once piece mechanism and bloody expensive so I'll get in there one weekend and have a look before I buy a new one..
