    "nads"

    hi all,
    I own a 2004 GU Patrol 3.0lt TD. 135,000km's on the clock and as yet no NADS modifications done . I would like peoples input on whether the nads modifications are worth doing.I've just started getting a high pitched whiring noise when the engine hits about 2100 rpm,local mechanic reckons it might be a leaking EGR gasket. I've thought about going the 6.5lt chev conversion route but really can't justify the $29,000.Love the patrol but don't want it to go bang.I know this topic has probably been done to death but there is so much info and conflicting stories out there that I'm totally confused.Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers
    Scrubrat

    mate your right its been done over and over but if i was you id be looking up every thread on here
    ive just about got my nads done,it may never happen but ive taken the step to try and avoid it
    i love my rig and im prepaired to look after it

    why spend all that money on a motor that you cant afford from what ive read there not much chop
    for a few hundred bucks do the nads and enjoy your rig

    Have just spent hours reading thread after thread, going ahead with the mods,i too love the patrol and as you said roofy,a few hundred dollars is a small price to pay for piece of mind.

    Cheers Guys

    I may have missed it, but what does nads stand for and what does it actually entail??

    I know it's not for mine (3.0ltr diesels commonly I'm assuming) but just interested.
