    Ek het die snorkel opgesit omdat ek baie grondpad ry. Was ook laasjaar 2 keer in die Hoanib rivier met sy poefstof en het deur 'n paar lugfilters gegaan.

    Moet nie alles glo wat die vervaardigers in hul advertensies beweer nie. Die temperatuur binne die "wheel arch" en by die kop van die snorkel is dieselfde (gekallibreerde elektroniese thermometer wat tot 0.1°C meet) As jy langs die snorkel staan kan jy hoor hoe die turbo lug suig. Met die dat die luginlaatpyp nou seker 4 keer langer as vantevore is mag daar dalk 'n verlies teen lae spoed wees, maar ek kon niks voel nie. En vergeet maar van die sogenaamde "ram" effek. Indien daar dalk meer lug teen 'n hoer snelheid in die pyp afgeforseer word, sal die "waste gate" dit na die turbo afbloei.

    Ek het 'n Ironman snorkel opgesit. Kon nie 'n Safari kry nie en wou nie 'n Chinese "no-name brand" opsit nie. Moes wel meer as 'n maand wag vir die snorkel om te kom.

    Die prys hier in Namibië is seker nie direk vergelykbaar met dit wat julle in SA betaal nie, maar ek het R4500 betaal.

    Ek het bietjie gebuig die naweek .......

    Die ekstra spaarwiel is in. Ek het die stoorboks agter die "gulwing" aan die bestuurder se kant van die kappie uitgehaal en die binnekant met mat oorgetrek en ook 'n laai ingesit. My kompressor is binne ingebou en aan die agterkant is my "inverter" batterylaaier en 'n klomp kragpunte. Die bedrading het my baie ure besig gehou. Het ook bokant elke deur in die kappie 'n LED staafliggie ingebou. Het begin met die 50 liter watertenk toe die donker, en reën, my vang. Sal kyk of ek dit môreaand kan klaarmaak, die ekstra battery kan inbou en die krag opkoppel.

    Jip en vir die werk snorkels baie goed. Dit raak baie vinnig vervelig om geblokte filters te vervang.

    Ek vervang die lugfilter elke +-5000km want ek ry baie grond. As jy in poefstof ry blok die filter heeltemal en gaan die bakkie in “limp mode”. Brandstof verbruik daal merkbaar soos die filter vuiler word.

    Ek hou nie van ‘n snorkel nie want ek dink dit lyk “kitsch”, maar ek het maar my oë toegeknyp .....

    My ou 2.8 het ons op daai paaie 'n pre-filter op die snorkel gedruk. Dan klink en lyk hy soos 'n trekker.

    Tot op hede het ek nog nie die bakkie se daktent opgesit nie maar die daktent en afdak is nou op. Ek het altyd my sandlere binne die laaibak gedra, maar met die dat die dubbelkajuit se bak 300mm korter as die "extended cab" sin is moes ek 'n ander plan met hulle maak. Die plek waar hulle nou is, lyk of dit spesiaal vir hulle gemaak is. Die hooglig domkrag is saam met my gereedskap en herwinningstoerusting in een van die laaie.

    Die bakkie is nou basies klaar gepak. Net kos, klere, kameras en die insittendes wat moet in. Is vir die volgende 3 naweke in die veld en dan ry ek die 29ste vir 'n week Kaokoland toe.

    Die bakkie gaan volgende Dinsdag vir sy eerste (15 000km) diens en hy is nou eers 3 maande oud !

    My RSI roof mounted sliding table finally arrived in Windhoek today. 10 minute job to fit it when I got home after work.

    De-cat, 63mm downpipe done!
    Minor power increase, with less turbo lag.
    I think with a 76mm you might get a bigger power increase.

    Fuel consumption has definitely improved and is one of the main reasons I did the decat. My consumption is at 12.2km/l

    Hi A1ex,

    That is a mod that i have been looking at for my 2006 KB300. When you say decat, do you mean the DPF was removed? Sorry if its a stupid question but I am a bit new to all of this. Did you take it to a specialist or did you just go to any old exhaust place?

    Thanks and I hope you have many happy miles.

    Hi welman, thank you.

    By Cat I mean Catalytic converter, which lies in your exhaust line, and is meant to filter your exhaust gases. But over time these become clogged up and can affect your fuel consumption and in worst case scenario if they get blocked they can cause you a serious headache.

    There's guys on this forum who can explain it better than i can.

    IIRC those Go-Bigs, did not have Cats/dpf's
    I had one for about seven years and did a 63mm(bought with313k on and sold with 400odd). response what slightly better, those KB300 tend to only wake up at 2500rpm. Mine started just after 2k rpm when I did my exhaust at Noise Boys here in Cape Town. Mild steel system will work, diesel soot prevents rust, stainless not necessary.

    Thanks Dwayne. That was my next question. How did the 63mm exhaust sound? I live in the Moot (Pretoria) and there are enough noisy vehicles around (including my abusively loud XR600R).

    With mine i can barely notice a difference in sound slightly deeper grunt sound, very minor, i think most of the difference in sound will come from playing around with your silencer setup or carrying your 63mm pipe all the way through to the back/tip.

    Yes i kept the silencer, might change that at a later stage but i dont want too much noise. I'd only do it/get rid of it cus the power might be bit better without, and then do the 63mm all the way through. Will sound like a beast after that haha.

    Another update: every trip i've done since the decat my avg fuel consumption has been getting better! Very happy! Its on 12.4km/l now, KB300 manual 4x4 ex-cab. So if my tank is 75liters i should get around 930km off a tank.

    I get about 1260km per fill up, and everything is still like it came from the factory ....

    Just out of interest how different is you consumption compared to your 2016 manual?

    And how are you enjoying the auto, makes life easy eh haha, once you go auto you never go back.

    Hi A1ex

    The built in aux tank does help with the distance achievable between fill-ups !!!!!!

    Fuel consumption :

    The first 300 MT Ext Cab gave a cumulative fuel consumption of 7.88km/l over 5408km (when it was written off after a collision). It did a few trips to the thick sand of the Khaudum.
    The second 33 MT Ext Cab gave a cumulative fuel consumption of 9.13km/l over 115 312km (when I traded it in). It did a few Cape Town trips which helped to get the numbers up.
    The new 300 AT Double cab has returned 8.59km/l over 19 011km. It has done 2 Cape Town trips so far but the bulk of the km's have been on gravel and sand.

    The AT seems to be lighter on fuel in off-road conditions though. On the last trip to the Kaokoland with the MT it gave 7.12km/l while the AT gave 8.43km/l.

    Please note that my vehicles are always semi-packed and that I carry a load on the roof on most weekends. Either the rooftop tent, or the rubber duck, kayaks or mountain bikes.


    Performance of the autobox ?

    It is very smooth although it takes a while to get used to it - coming from a manual after all these years.

    I am very impressed with its performance off-road. Most of the time in sand I just leave it in auto, but on rocks I use the manual function. The torque converter does not steal a lot of power and locks up very fast. Engine braking is good too.

    Hi Alex

    What was your fuel consumption before you did the 63mm free flow, currently my 2009 is giving me around 7.8-8.5km/L in town and out of town around 8.8-9.5km/L (Very Thirsty)
