    What kind of fuel consumption figures are you guys getting?
    I see people stating 12 - 14 litres per 100km for fairly unmodified engines. Is that about right?

    Mine is 15-16, around town. 33 all terrains, 3" exhaust, big intercooler and it's tuned to run optimal maxed out at 14psi.
    Big long freeway drives usage drops dramatically.

Didn't get to check winch. If this is the sort of car you are chasing, and suits budget, I'd get on the plane to Adelaide now. Been on the market for a while now but can't last. There is another one for just under $20k in Adelaide, Carsales .com I think. Car is blue. Says its 4.2 turbo, 1999?, engine plate says 4.5Petrol but if papers are good might be worth checking too while in SA.
    Happy hunting
    Hi Monty, I must have missed this post. Thanks for the reply mate, much appreciated. I think I've seen the blue patrol you mention too. Pretty schmick inside. I was in Adelaide a few weeks back hence why I was browsing the net there but not quite ready to pull the trigger. A toss up between turboing that neat old rig or paying more to get a factory turbo vehicle.
    I have family in Adelaide so it's not a huge ask to fly over if I found the right rig there

    Whats the tell-tale signs of factory turbs?

    Apart from the suffix on the engine number, the 3 main items are the oil pressure outlet for turbo under the exhaust manifold, the oil return from turbo into the block & turbo coolant feed in front of oil pressure regulator.
    When a turbo is added to an NA engine, the turbo coolant feed, if it’s fitted, will usually be taken from the block drain at the rear left. The oil pressure for turbo is generally taken from a 1/8 BSPT grub screw near the left engine mount and the turbo oil return will go to a fitting in the sump.

    Yeah mine around 15 16 too, but the vast majority of stuff the GQ does is in the bush so no bad really. . Usually always around the 1000K mark out of 90L main & 70 L sub running to fairly empty. . .
