    I still recommend getting a tune done by him though, reckon you'll get a more efficient tune from him.

    Bugger. I'll ring them on the 2nd.
    The Patrol is running 5c on average hotter, and the water temps rise faster now when I accelerate up a hill, or when there is load on the motor.
    So around town it was always fluctuating between 75c and 80c, it might hit 85c if I gave it the berries up a long hill. On the highway, it was always 80-85c, and 90c sitting at 110kph.
    Now, around town is 80-85c and hits 90c quite easily and on the highway at 100 its 90c-95c. When idle the temps will drop to 80c in a few minutes too, so I know the fan is working. Plus I can hear it too, it locks in earlier since the new injectors.

    I'm just a little concerned with the water temps when towing my camper up the coast. I think I'll be right though, the factory overheat limit is 118c from memory, I just have to watch the gauge more.

    Guess what fun stuff I finally got round to doing today..... I'm going to cry then burn the bastard thing if I have to do it again.


    Also finally got to fit the front shocks I bought a year ago...... Ran out of time to change my springs, so that will be a job for tomorrow
