    Ek kry die kar volgende Saterdag, dan sal ek weet. Die engine bay is maar taamlik vol engine.
    Ek sal nie die Lexus met die I6 kan vergelyk nie want ek het nog nooit met een gery nie.

    One would like to see some torque/power graphs of both engines.

    I will definitely have to change the 'zorst!
    Just after I got the tjiepie I de-beaded a front tyre and got out the airjack to lift the vehicle to re-inflate.
    Put the nozzle on one side of the split tailpipe and nothing, it is only a fitting at the end lekker tappit

    What does the throttle body spacer do?

    I found some graphs. What does it tell us? Not much to choose when it comes to bottom end torque?

    They are a bit too flashy for me Chris. If you plastic dip them black they will look good.

    Looks like yours and my bumper is the same, what make is it?
    Outwardly your Jeep looks very good and can't really be approved upon. Diff ratios and rockers like you mentioned will really make a difference. Have you ever been stopped by a cross axle situation?

    Yup, most of the time you can get away with picking your line carefully and some generous throttle input, but sometimes it dangerous to use momentum, like rock crawling. So I'm putting a rear locker in.

    But look at how high up in the rev range the LS torque peaks, then drops away. That's why you have to rev the crap out of them & why they don't perform on trails.

    The I6 & Penta peak at lower revs then stays there through a wider rev range.

    The LS is a revvy car engine. All the greats have I6 engines, like the Cruisers, Patrols, TJ/XJ & to some extent the 2.8 Landys.

    Slightly better bottom end power & a more grunty sound. They work better on a TJ than an XJ because you can fit a much taller unit.

    UAP sell them at a fraction of the price of imports.
