    Talking Newby to 4x4ing

    Hey Guys,

    Bought myself a very clean and rust free GQ a few months ago as i did a bit of research and found them to be praised the highest. Keen to get into the 4x4 scene, already put in 2" lift and 33s to have some fun.
    Got the reputable TD42, unfortunately found out later on theres a difference between Blacktops and Silvertops and landed myself on the blackside.
    Not entirley fussed i can't Turbo it, it goes hard enough off road. Whats the go with blacktops though, heard they're not liked at all, did i screw myself or are they fine to take out (even though its a slug).

    Welcome mate. I'm not an expert on the differences but the td42 is a solid motor in whatever colour. I've not looked into it but it's likely the blacktop would just have some differences that don't suit a turbo like the silver. Keep the oil changes up to it and don't over-heat it and it'll look after you.
