    Re: Keeping cool in a tent - tips?

    Interesting question.
    My Echo Chobe caravan has shade netting. I haven't noticed an issue. That said; it isn't really advisable to read my Kindle at night, because sometimes tiny little flying...
  2. Re: Is the ECU clever enough to limit EGT with auto

    If your car had a probe to measure EGT, and if it was programmed to protect against excessive EGT, then it would not select a higher gear. It would do the opposite: it would reduce fuel inflow and...

    Re: Trailblazer vs Isuzu MUX parts

    Keeping this thread alive, at the risk of labouring the same point: only the platform is shared between Isuzu and GM. Everything that is bolted onto that chassis, that I have been able to check, is...

    Hey Cats,
    You "bus-guys" should like this one. Some features here you may want to incorporate in your next mod.
    PS. Heck, I may even swap my Chevy for something like this!

    Sticky: Re: Trailblazer - some experiences and problems

    I agree, the phone didn't hurt the big battery.
    We have to assume the ECU was communicating with some sensors all the time.
    After I had started the car I was instructed by the car to open and close...

    Sticky: Re: Trailblazer - some experiences and problems

    We had a great weekend gathering on the mountain. I jumped in with another gent for the Friday and Saturday 4x4 trips. I left my Chevy standing for two days. I made sure the interior lights were off...

  13. Re: Larger diameter tyres and towing ability & consumption

    That same app shows a 13.2mm sidewall difference and I assume that is what prompted you in the first place to go bigger.
    I'm starting to convince myself to go bigger soon, but I want to go from...

    Google Maps. All you need is to download the map before you go.
  15. Re: Larger diameter tyres and towing ability & consumption

    Larger diameter means a drop in actual wheel torque in the same gear. My tyre app says the drop is 3.3%.

    Re: 3L DTeq KB6 4x4 Oil Change info

    The 15k engine oil change interval is really pushing the limit for any mineral oil. 15k is most probably OK-ish for full synthetic.

    Re: 17 Isuzu 300 auto 4x2 Fuel Consumption

    The consumption sounds too high.
    What was your previous car and what was the consumption (I assume with identical usage pattern)?
    Do you have standard wheels and tyres on your Isuzu?
  20. Re: The story of Shrek - My T5.1 Transporter 4motion

    I share your sense of satisfaction (R12k permitting). It does appear as if Shrek needed that nose job and R12k for such a service is most probably below par.
    PS. I caught a lift in one of Shrek's...

    Cats,
    Could you personally confirm the cambelt condition? I smell another upsell here.
  22. Re: Ford Raptor sticker kits - to remove or not to remove ??

    I saw a few (real) F150 Raptors this weekend. Man, that is one handsome beast. They were all unfortunately parked, so I couldn't experience the song of the two big exhaust pipes in anger.
