Re: Z24 to TD27T Conversion

If your going to put the time and effort in, have you thought about a zd30 instead? The results would be chalk and cheese.

One thing to think about, is would the z24 manual cope with the additional torque of the td27. I am not saying it wont, just something to think about.

Re: td27t power up

Since youve changed the amount of boost, have you done anything about more fuel?

By the way you describe it, if you dont have a good egt gauge yet, it might be worth your while getting one.

Re: cv or hub?

Is it constant clicking or sort of a bit random?

If its not the CV, I will guess & say its the hub becoming disengaged from the, for lack of the proper term, 'drive collar'.
Have you put the cv snap rings back on in the right spot? Or the spacers behind the 'drive collar'?

Re: buggy build

Is it fair to say that your set up is like driving around in 4 high all the time? Reason I ask is how do you think it will go climbing steep stuff, little motor pushing big tyres & no low range?
Not having a go, just interested. ;)

From a quick google & look at a few shell pages, spriax a s2 (not sure what the s2 is though) is api-gl5 & spriax g is api-gl4. Nissan specify api-gl4 for our gearboxes.

Re: gu gear oils

(assuming manual gearbox) Gearbox oil needs to be API-GL4. Not 5.
Castrol VMX is one oil, that is the right spec.

I would be using ATF in the transfer case.

Re: old pathfinders

Aside from the idler arm, the steering is not so much 'weak', more so the centre link can rotate in the horizontal. With a lift, the rotation in the centre link causes the tierod ends to operate outside of where they are designed to, then you get bending etc. Ufortunately I never really found much I...

Re: K&N cold air intakes

Donaldson do very good filter housings & filters. It just takes some effort to fit to the car.
I maybe wrong, but I think they do 'powercore' filters/elements for the cyclone style/shape housings now as well (probably a bit easier to fit).

have you had a look at the donaldson powercore range?

from memory the D09 flows around the 350cfm mark
A D10 flows, again from memory, 600 odd cfm

takes a little bit of fitting, but if thats what your after.
