    so i got 2 of my HDJ81s in this morning. i took Berni's HDJ81 for a test run and yes it is sweet ride, in cab adjustable shocks, heated seats, turbo timer, diff locks front and rear with center diff lock, ice box, reclining rear seats, blah, blah blah...
    goes very nice.

    then i jump into the intercooled HDJ81, diff locks, center lock, lift kit, remote gas shocks, swing out rear tire, ladder, turbo timer, big ass running lights, blah, blah, blah and OH MY GOD, does that sucker ever pull!! it sits you right back in the seat! i think it would be a close run between the HZJ75 turbo on propane and this one.

    i never had a chance to time it but WOW!! my feet are still tingly...

    cheers

    <anyone want pics or dimentions?>

    Awesome Wayne!!!


    Sounds like your JDM 80's have a lot more bells& wistles than my euro one :frown:

    I am curious as to the boost and egts on the intercooled one as well as the gears and tires on it. It sound you the fuel is already turned up on that one :doh:

    Cheers,

    Michael

    Has it still got the 12 Valve engine or the 24 valve. I'm looking at intercooling my 1993 12 Valve and if the difference is that awesome on the smae base engine then it will be happening sooner rather than later.

    Eye popping Wayne! Just great! The piping looks awesome, and the units sound just amazing. Full locks, reclining rear seats? WOW... I wish I could afford one!! One day maybe... didn't think i'd ever get an HJ.. so one never knows!

    so now i am spoiled (again), i have fallen head over heals for this ride.
    i can not afford an intercooler and since the buyer might miss it i can not "borrow" his i have decided the time has come.
    when Berni isn't around i am thinking of sticking PI on this baby and give it a test run, play with the boost a wee bit and maybe crank the fuel just a bit...

    i will need to sleep on this idea as i am sure i could end up on the couch if i go ahead...

    humm, what to do...
    cheers
