Wayne with the Commodore we have spoken about in the “over 12 months later” blog was here with his new vehicle for some maintenance. The TD42 check over included a full service, upgraded diff and trans oils, Power Curve TD42 fan upgrade, and dyno tune. Living north the TD42 was purchased here on the coast. Having had experience with the Power Curve Performance team prior the TD42 check over was carried out with us.
Wayne will be using the TD as a travel car and has a few trips. The TD42 check over and service. All air, oil, fuel filters were replaced. It is very important to change your filters, the change in power, engine temperature and reliability can be assisted with this simple investment. A TD42 is known for overheating and our fan upgrade is a great preventative measure. Wayne wanted to upgrade his diff and transfer case oil to a full synthetic. To assist with the care of these units he also had the Superior Engineering 4 port diff breathers installed.
Power Curve Performance keeps a steady stream of breathers in stock. If you would like them installed or DIY you are welcome to pop in and buy in the store. These retail for $140 and are a great universal fit for your vehicle.
TD42 Check over, Power Curve Performance Fan Upgrade
The Power Curve Performance one of a kind fan upgrade is fairly self-explanatory. In 90% of applications, it is easily installed into the custom shroud and has everything required to simply bolt in. At $400 retail the fan is designed and tested on Sunshine Coast Vehicles including our own to push more air into the TD. You can see from the design the shape and the number of blades provides this outcome and it has been a success. Don’t be fooled by the cheeky little Nissan sticker Patrick used on his display for some time as a talking point. The fans are available in store or via our website.
Superior Coil Tower Brace Kit Nissan Patrol Ute
This is a Superior Engineering Bolt-On Coil Tower Brace Kit for the Nissan Patrol Ute and Body Lifted Wagon. The Superior Engineering Chassis Tower Brace stops the rear coil tower from bending and tearing from the chassis, correcting a weak point in GU and GQ Nissan Patrol suspension design. The kit was installed while an easy install on the hoist for Wayne.
The coil tower brace is pressed up with 6mm steel and comes with all the necessary bolts. Also comes with a Polyurethane anti-shaffing brake line plate to protect the brake lines and fittings. This is a brace kit to suit Nissan patrols. Designed to be 100% bolt on with all bolts included. Simply bolts on top of the towers.
TD42 check over complete Wayne had opted for a Power Curve Performance dyno tune. The vehicle has an upgraded pump, turbo and cross country intercooler so we are expecting additional power. The tune was not done her nore the upgrades. From the tuning, we have gained more power however the turbo we feel may not be the right application for the job and this maybe altered at a later date.
