bigbrowndog said:Thanks, The pics I posted are from my son's mates truck.His Dad owned the truck before him and I believe the turbo has been on this truck for over 15 years, trouble free.
bigbrowndog said:They are about $1,000.00 and they only fit AXT turbos ok" End of that conversation, so I have been trying to find more info on them. cheers gazza.
Too true , I cannot understand why they would say they only work on an AXT turbo when it fits on the fuel pump and it runs off the pressure from the high pressure crossover. It does work well on the cruiser pictured, it does not have a pyro but the exhaust is always pretty cool and the motor has not been touched for years apart from owner service.R2HKS said:Its known as a fuel aneroid here in Oz. My understanding of it is that it works the same way as a petrol rising rate regulator does. You keep your fuel setting stock, then when boost comes on for every psi of boost it will add an extra psi of fuel to compensate. This way you have the best of both worlds, when its off boost it provides the same amount of fuel as if it was atmo, when its on boost it increases the amount of fuel supplied.
For the life of me though I can't work out why they are so expensive for diesels, $1200 AUD is the price I have got on them when for a petrol car you can buy them for $400 AUD or so.

The engine life especially on the 2H must improve from the engine's head temperatures being kept lower also we all know where some of the unburnt fuel ends up in the sump.As my boy said you have never thought about driving your cruiser like he drives his and all the times I have been with him it never ran hot being flogged in high or low range. It is a 4 speed with a modified Fairey unit.But as you blokes say its hard to justify the Big$ for such a small part.aussie75series said:I've been shopping too and decided against getting one.The positives are:better fuel economy (1-2ltrs/100kms)and more power(10%from memory).The negative is $.I don't need another 10% it IS a diesal truck and I would have to do about 100,000 kms to recoup the cost.I couldn't find out about engine life which is important to me.
How about fitting it and giving a report back to the guys. Don't forget to back your fuel off to standard settings though. I was not aware they were on the other motor , will have to check that out during the week, might be the cheap way out. cheers: Dcrushers said:shop around in the junk yards, the 2LTE has exactly what you are looking for. now that you mention it, i think i have one kicking around in the shop somewhere.
