Nissan Patrol 1994: Will turbocharging increase power?

Answered by CarsGuide 3 Feb 2011

It’s quite common for Patrol owners to turbocharge the 4.2-litre diesel, it gives the best bang for your buck of all the available performance enhancers available. You could fit a better exhaust, a chip, or a cold air intake, but they would only give you a modest improvement, whereas the turbo will give you a decent increase in performance.

Nissan Patrol 1994: Will a turbocharger improve power?

Answered by CarsGuide 19 Oct 2010

I will assume you have a 4.2-litre non-turbo diesel, which can be a little gutless. But they are a tough old engine and will cope pretty well with a turbocharger. There are aftermarket bolt-on kits available, generally at a cost of about $3000 or so, and will usually boost the power by about 20 per cent. Before you do it ensure your engine is in relatively good shape, there’s no point in fitting a turbo to an engine that’s on its last legs.
