    Re: Any Hilux V6 Auto owners?

    Hi Johan,

    I can add for comparison sake that I have a Pajero which had the old 2.8TDi motor, now running with a 4.0L lexus - which is not 100% the same as the V6, but close enough for comparison's...

    Clearance of 205mm is fine for most applications - most bakkies are 220-230mm.
