    Carcrafter22 put one in his f100, he was running about 45psi, had an overboosting issue, hit 60psi, blew the head gasket. He also had a compound turbo set up, wasn't him was it?
    Never heard of one running 100psi, would love to see that.

    Could have been. It was on a test bench from memory and about to be put in his SUV. He was working through cooling problems at the time. I will see if I can dig it up when I get home.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    So the TD5 has 'more' on paper (in standard form). I noticed the TD5 based on those specs has its 300nm at just 1950 while the ISUZU has it at 1900 (so really no difference)... what is the actual torque/power curve like though... thats what would be interesting to know.

    The isuzu has a very flat torque curve, pulls well from idle. Mine has been estimated from engineers and dyno results to be around 200+kw and 600+Nm at the flywheel. It would be closer to 250kw now.

    Just to stir the pot! One of our forum members in his 4BD1 powered County. I think picking the right line may have helped, but having decent gearing, good articulation and getting power down is certainly important too.

    Lol - the nut behind the wheel plays a large factor in my eyes.. A good driver will always out perform a crap driver in a better vehicle.. Experience counts for a lot also.

    Most definitely, the nut behind the wheel counts! Rijidij mentioned that in the comments section of the video. He also said the 80 Series ran out of wheel travel.
