The Derv Doctor will want to look at your fuel pump timing, etc. To adjust the fuelling you will need special equipment to do it properly. Adjusting the boost is easy once you've fitted a boost gauge (by simply running tubing from the take off on the manifold that points to the left hand headlamp to the gauge itself).

The factory setting is 0.7 bar. By removing the c clip from the wastegate spindle you will be able to shorten the actuator arm by as much as 2mm to raise the boost up to 1 bar (be careful it pings off too easily and you're likely to loose it - like I did - causing the actuator arm to rise off the wastegate, making the van smoke like a train and no boost at all.)

To be honest 175.00 for peace of mind isn't bad at all - he'll also let you know if you have any cambelt issues...

I've got a navara/ xtrail intercooler (after seeing this mod) that I'm fitting to my 2.5 this weekend..I'm using a mix of original pipework, silicone hoses, and a bmw hose i got from a breaker.

I just checked the link. if you click on the address it goes straight to the pic. If not try going to totally t4 website, vans for sale, near bottom of list, modded black t4 (its marked sold), click on pics , you find it there. its a long nose van but the principal of how its mounted is what I'm doing. I'll post some pics when its done. the navara intercoolers I've seen on e-bay dont look like mine. Lost interest trying to sort it out with nissan. What they eventually sold me is identical to the one in the pic and according to them is from an x-trail!! I dont care as long as it does the job!!

I've got my eye on a couple of 'coolers on flea bay at the moment - it'll mean having to splash out on pipework, which is an as I reckon one of those 'universal' kits would do two vans.........

Anyway - if anyone beats me to it and has some pipework left over (76mm, I believe) I'd be interested in buying any bits that I need, rather than splashing out for a kit that'd have loads of bits left over.........

Deffo get some pics up when you sort it!!

BTW - can you do a write up about fitting the boost gauge, as I reckon it needs to be done (where to tap the pipe, leccy contacts, etc)

In the meantime, if you can let me know how it's done, I need to fit one too!!
