    So I'm not very happy with myself for paying almost double in the end, but was in a bit of a hurry... why I don't know.

    I can think of more excuses for not making the effort to buy aftermarket, but maybe it boils down to laziness in the end. Sigh.

    At least the braking is silent now, so good on the ears.
    I been giving the powerbrake offering a good second glance.
    Sadly they only do front discs and pads. But I am close to making a purchase. Before I do though has anyone fitted these and have there been any problems.

    Side note, my back pads are finnito, Mitsubishi's official spares are R1100 for rear, plus plenty more for a new set of clips.

    If there is a good generic I am keen.

    When the time comes to replace discs as well that will be my option. Up until the original discs hold up I'll stick to only changing the pads.

    If you have a problem with the standard brakes' performance, get the upgrade. The reviews on powerbrake on this site is all positive!!

    Good morning,

    I fitted these a few months ago as the original discs were shuddering and the pads were finished when I purchased the car.
    Mitsu OEM stuff was almost the same price so it was a no brainer.
    So far I'm very happy. They have a very smooth and consistent feel as well as having the ability to stop the car
    I also have some friends who have been using powerbrake for years on their blister fender Pajeros. The one was running 35" tyres and now runs 33", he swears by powerbrake and continues to use them.

    Cheers.

    Thanks Paul. It just shows you how part numbers differ. I got the FDB4023 Ferrodo part no off the internet which i suspect may be for the pre 2010 model (drum brakes at rear) .

    Thanks for the part number you supplied, at least we know its correct from your experience.

    Gents has anyone fitted aftermarket suspension, specifically front shocks and coils to their PS (or triton) ?
    I installed brand ABC ( wont let who yet ) but have been struggling since day 1. Three different configurations later and getting Mitsubishi SA involved - now after 40 000 K's with these new shocks have failed and am battling to get them to come to the party.

    So I am considering making another investment into a different brand either ironman or old man emu. Iron man claim 40mm height clearance and ome 20mm, can anyone verify this or or provide insight if they have installed these brands? - Thanks

    FYI if anyone is having issues with their suction control valve on the 3.2DiD.
    The part from Mitsubishi is over R4.5k.
    I did however notice it is a Denso part (294200-0360).
    After a little bit of searching it is also fitted to the newer Nissan NP300 bakkies with the YD25 engine code.
    R1500 from Nissan.

    I fitted an ironman kit about 2 years ago and are happy so far. I tow an xcape caravan and also do a lot of overlanding trips. Chris van Niekerk from Bluerhino 4x4 fitted my kit and he has done a professional job

    The SCV's job is to regulate fuel preasure on commonrail cars. Its s pretty standard part that is shared by Toyota Isuzu Mitsubishi and Nissan.

    If one suspects the SCV to be malfunctioning, remove it, clean it and turn it 180 degrees and put it back. Big change that it will be fixed.

    Well took the plunge and bought the Powerbrake disc and pad set.

    As you say, it is cheaper than the standard offering from Mitsu spares so it is a total no-brainer.

    Next trick is to find a decent fitment center in Pietermaritzburg or around.

    Any suggestions?

    Hi Mike refer e mail discussion at the time

    I can help with this vehicle. The Ironman lift kit has a 40-50mm lift built in to the suspension kit.

    The kit comprises of new spring components in the front and back of the vehicle to improve stability and load capacity. Where applicable, It also compensates for any load on the vehicle caused by extras fitted like, bull bars, spare wheel carriers etc.

    The shocks are Ironman Nitrogas large bore lift kit shocks, stays cooler for longer and with a 60 000km 3 year warranty very good value for money.

    I am planning a trip to Botswana next year. Nxai pans, maun, savuti, linyanti, ihaha, nata and home. My 3.2d PS is getting on in years and km's (160 000). I plan to rent a small off-road caravan such as conquerer companion (or boskriek or imagine if possible). I have never towed with the PS and would like to hear from those of you who have done so. Seriously bad roads between Linyanti and Savuti. Do any of you have relevant experience?

    Drop uour tyre preasure to between 1.8 and 1.5, On gravel rd, depending on road. trailer as well. Remove your cattalitic converter. It takes away turbo lag, and helps with fuel consumption. Take an extra air and diesel filter. As well as a set of beltsMy car is on the same milage and is by far not getting old. Drive ot to 300 000 km!!!!!

ID:	410803Ok, got my PS Shogun back from Arnold Venter at Alberton Ironman4X4south.
    1. Fitted stainless steel 70l aux tank with separate protection plate, next to existing fuel tank. Nicely done!
    2. To fit the tank the exhaust has to be modified. Now have a free flow system with a throaty roar when pedal is depressed in anger. (Was a bit of a surprise to me, at first!)
    3. Came highly recommended for his Mitsu engine software upgrade. (no chip, and not part of the memory that can be changed at dealer "flash") Have only had it for a few hundred KM. Turbo lag is much improved and subjectively much more responsive. When pushed hard, can sound like sporty roadster. When driving at my normal 120KM/h there is about a 1L/100km improvement. (according to onboard computer). Very happy. Much more safe, for me, when driving in traffic. Have really been missing my Subaru.
