    Fitting it to the diesel is asking to shred it. The V6 won't put out nearly as much torque as the diesel will. HP/KW don't destroy drivelines, torque does. And diesels have a crap ton of it.
    I honestly love my car, I hate the fact that everywhere I go people try to race it. I don't need to prove who's faster in a straight line, the track slips will tell me who is a better driver.

        I've been thinking about doing a rear disk brake conversion at some point. I'll need the diff from one of these:



        It's an Isuzu Mu, kind of like a Frontera Coupe. Now, I'm not sure if the frontera has rear Disk Brakes, but I'll do some more digging because it's a direct swap. All I'll need is fresh handbrake cables and an uprated booster.

        EDIT: And the diff ofcourse, silly me, lack of sleep lol :P

          Got the new drivers side guard pannel today. but unfortunately that's all I managed to get, the aerial was ****ed so I'll wait on that. I also pulled a few more stickers off and got some engine bay shots for you guys.







          An Interior Shot lol



          Engine bay:









          You can see why I want to fix up that plastic shit that leads from the air filter box to the turbo, it's not only hideous but there's too many bends IMO.

          Once the ute was cleaned up I went of a spin. She hit 120 like there was nothing to it. Mustn't be so weighed down any more lol.

              Lol it already has a boost guage and putting a BOV on a diesel is kinda pointless dude....

                          It looked amazing when it was handed down to you Not saying I hate it now, I still like it, its cool. But I'm the understated kinda guy :P

                          Curious though, are those tyres the same as what the car was handed down to you with? If so, they have worn down A LOT. :P I like it. Do you do a lot of offroading with it?

                            The tyres on it currently are new, the ones that i got it with are still new, $600 and they're mine. BTW McMerc if you look at recent pics you'll nitce I'm stripping it down to what it looked like when i got it with a few custom offroad touches.

                            Personally, with uni on the cards it's been a show pony since i got it in 2010, so now it's time to get back into 4x4ing again.

                            I've been everywhere man! Here's a list:

                            -Craigs Hut Winter, 1.5 feet of snow / mud (easy as pie)
                            -Mt Buller Winter, ice packed road in 4x4 no chains (easy as pie)
                            -Kangaroo Island, Emu Bay Beach Driving / Light rock crawling (easy as pie)
                            -Robe to Beachport SA, Beach Driving (easy as pie)
                            -Swan Lake Dunes Vic (bogged a few times but otherwise okay)
                            -Coboboonee State Forrest Vic Mud Run (Never been bogged strangely enough)
                            -The Coorong SA (A few times stuck but did very well)
                            -The Grampians 4x4 Track (Needed to break out the winch / snatch strap in the thicker stuff but so worth it)
                            -Fire Boundary Track Northern Portland Vic (Got bogged in very deep, dad had to rescue me)
