    Wow, that is enormous power. I can imagine from 2000 RPM it is a real beast.

    I went to Nazeem but there was some issues with loading the dyno and the bakkie to get it to boost so went to SAC in Greenbushes.

    And it took 15 minutes to fit and ready to work.
    Thank you.

    Well done. Must be on of the most powerful v8 70 Series Cruisers in the country.

    Thank you everyone. It is the completion of a dream to have that something special. But the cruiser now demands respect to be driven with that power, but the look on peoples faces when it comes past and noise it makes is just something special.

    Ill try and load up a video of it making full noise, and a big thanks to LCH Centurion for all the work and help on the power build. Really top notch workmanship and all EGT temps are good and boosting 2.4 bar. Just be pleasure to drive.

    But the poor back tires, they surely do take a lot of strain but never let go of grip, impressed with the KM3 tires. Now its time for dunes, sand and fun.

    Its pure bliss every morning when I start it and let it warm up. I still pinch myself to think its mine, and to see the fellow road users faces when I floor it and they hear this noise and see a cruiser flying past is just priceless.

    Just had the new radius arms fitted. Made a difference on the prop shaft angle and the way the nose of the vehicle behaves.

    Basically now she is done. I have my eye on the 300mm chassis extension with coil conversion, but will see.
    I know there is the Jamax kit in Jhb at land cruiser heaven.

    I must agree. This is what dreams look like. Would love to feel that machine move. Enjoy it.
