LOVELLS GVM UPGRADE SUITABLE FOR FORD RANGER PXII/MAZDA BT-50 4X4 1/12 ON 3500KG (OE 3200KG) POST REGISTRATION     The usable payload of many 4X4 vehicles today is minimal.

power curve performance, 79 sereis landcruiser, power issues,

Gerard was referred to Power Curve Performance from a valued friend and mechanical professional in Hervey Bay.  Gerards 79 series Landcruiser concerns are low power and a high whistle.  Knowing that Gerard was coming from Hervey Bay we had some concerns in regards to him returning home the same day.  Based on 79 series landcruisers we see every day the diagnosis over the phone would be to jump to a failed or chipped turbocharger. Why we don't diagnose over the phone Our concern based on 79 series landcruisers we see every day we can diagnose by ear, feel and then sight a failed turbo in minutes.   So we had a feeling this could be the unfortunate case based on what...
