DIESEL CONVERSIONS AUSTRALIA - OFTEN IMITATED, NEVER REPLICATED

WE ARE THE ORIGINAL INNOVATOR FOR CUMMINS 4.5L CONVERSIONS!
THESE ENGINES TICK ALL THE BOXES FOR LONG RANGE TOURING AND HEAVY TOWING.

BUT WHY SHOULD YOU SPEND THE TIME TO CONVERT WHEN YOU COULD JUST BUY A NEW CAR? 

PICTURE THIS: 
YOU HAVE A GU PATROL AND YOU’VE ACQUIRED PROBABLY $50-60K WORTH OF ACCESSORIES OVER THE YEARS, IT’S EVERYTHING YOU NEED AND MORE. BUT THAT PESKY ZD30 WORRIES YOU OR WORST CASE – IT’S ALREADY BLOWN. AT THIS POINT IN TIME, YOU FIND YOURSELF AT A CROSSROADS WITH THREE OPTIONS. 
1) DO YOU REPAIR THE ZD30 (OR OTHER) AT A COST OF APPROXIMATELY $14,000 FOR THIS TO POTENTIALLY HAPPEN AGAIN IN A FEW YEARS?
2) DO YOU UPGRADE TO A NEW LANDCRUISER AT $60-120K AND THEN SPEND ANOTHER $50-60K DECKING IT OUT TO THE EXTENT OF THE CURRENT PATROL?
3) DO YOU SPEND $30-40K ON CONVERTING THE CAR YOU ALREADY KNOW AND TRUST FOR AN ALL ROUND RELIABLE PACKAGE?
FROM CONVERSATIONS WE HAVE ON A DAILY BASIS, THE MAJORITY ARE THINKING THE SAME AS YOU.
OPTION 3 – THE REPOWER!
THE ENGINE OF CHOICE IS THE CUMMINS 4.5L COMMON RAIL DIESEL – THE PERFECT COMBINATION OF SIZE, EFFICIENCY AND POWER.
4.5L CUMMINS OVERVIEW

THE CUMMINS 4.5L COMMON RAIL ENGINE IS THE FUTURE OF DIESEL CONVERSIONS FOR 4WD VEHICLES. THE 4.5L IS A COMPLETE REDESIGN, THESE ARE NOT A 4BT, NEITHER ARE THEY JUST A B-SERIES BLOCK BORED OUT BUT A REAL COMMON RAIL BEAST. LIKE THE B-SERIES, THEY ARE NOT A WET SLEAVE, THIS SAVES A LOT ON WEIGHT AS THE CASTING DOESN’T NEED TO BE AS HEAVY, COOLING IS MORE EFFICIENT AS WELL WITH EXCELLENT COOLANT GALLERY DESIGN THROUGH BOTH THE HEAD AND BLOCK.
THE BASIC 4.5L ARE 183HP AND 650NM STANDARD AT THE WHEELS, WHICH IS PERFECT FOR OUR 4X4 CLIENT BASE WHO ENJOY SPENDING THEIR WEEKENDS CARAVANNING, BOATING AND DRIVING LONG DISTANCES. THE POSSIBILITIES OF MORE GRUNT ARE ENORMOUS AND THESE MOTORS HAVE THE BUILD TO BECOME BITUMEN SHREDDING TORQUE MONSTERS WITH VERY LITTLE WORK.
THE 4.5L ENGINE IS A 4CYL, 107MM BORE, 124MM STROKE WITH A 16 VALVE HEAD AND CENTRAL VERTICAL INJECTION. AS WELL AS BEING A TURBO CHARGED, HIGH PRESSURE COMMON RAIL ENGINE WITH A 17.3:1 COMPRESSION RATIO AND NO GLOW PLUGS, ITS MAIN DESIGN IS BASED ON THE MODERN 6.7L TRUCK ENGINE THAT YOU CAN FIND IN A DODGE RAM. 
FROM THE HEAD DOWN, THE DESIGN IS THE NORM FOR MODERN, MEDIUM DIESELS WITH 4 VALVES PER CYLINDER AND THE INJECTOR MOUNTED CENTRALLY AND VERTICALLY, COMPARED TO THE OLD 4BT AND 6BT WHICH USED SIDE INJECTION AND AN OFF CENTRE PISTON BOWL. 
THE 24 VALVE HEADS ARE A CUT DOWN VERSION OF A MODEL KNOWN FOR THEIR EXCELLENT COOLANT FLOW AND HEAT EXCHANGE CAPABILITIES THROUGHOUT THEIR POWER RANGE, OWING TO OPTIMAL COOLANT GALLERY DESIGN. 
AS THE PISTONS, CONRODS AND MOST OTHER INTERNAL PARTS ARE FROM THE 6.7L WITH RATED STANDARD TORQUE OF 1100NM, THERE IS MORE THAN ADEQUATE BUILT IN STRENGTH PRESENT TO KEEP IT ALL RUNNING SMOOTHLY UP TO 400HP WITHOUT THE NEED FOR MODIFICATION. 
THE CAM AND AUX DRIVE IS VIA A GEARED DRIVE TRAIN AT THE REAR OF THE ENGINE THAT DRIVES THE CAM, FUEL PUMP AND ACCESSORY GEAR, AS THE TIMING GEARS ARE SANDWICHED BETWEEN THE REAR OF THE BLOCK AND THE FRONT OF THE ALLOY ADAPTOR PLATE, THIS REDUCES TIMING GEAR NOISE VASTLY COMPARED TO THE OLD FRONT GEARS OF THE B-SERIES USING A TIN COVER THAT ESSENTIALLY ACTED AS AN ACOUSTIC AMPLIFIER. 
EXPECTED ECONOMY RANGE IN YOUR AVERAGE NISSAN OR TOYOTA SET UP TO TOUR THE COUNTRY IS ABOUT 10-12L/100KM UP TO 14L/100KM DEPENDING ON YOUR INDIVIDUAL SET UP, REGARDLESS, THESE FIGURES WILL BE MUCH BETTER THAN THE LATE MODEL V8 LANDCRUISERS OR STANDARD ENGINES LIKE ZD30, TD42, 1HZ ETC WITH THE IDENTICAL SET UP. 
WE HAVE OVER 12 MONTHS OF DEVELOPMENT IN CUSTOM SOFTWARE ALLOWING US TO COMPLETELY TUNE THE FACTORU CUMMINS ECU, AND ARE THE ONLY REPRESENTATIVE OUTSIDE OF CUMMINS THAT IS ABLE TO MAKE CHANGES TO FUELING AND MAX RPM. FACTORY RPM IS 2800RPM, CUMMINS LIST 4250RPM AS THE MAXIMUM AND WE GENERALLY SET THEM TO BE AROUND 3500-3700RPM.
BEING THE ORIGINAL INNOVATOR OF THE CUMMINS 4.5L CONVERSION INTO PATROLS AND LANDCRUISERS, WE HAVE ADAPTER PLATES READY TO GO TO BOLT THESE WEAPON ENGINES UP TO STANDARD PATROL 5SP MANUAL GEARBOXES, STANDARD 4SP PATROL AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSIONS AND ALSO TOYOTA H151 MANUAL GEARBOXES.
