The professionally developed and engineered Safari Intercooler System for Nissan's 4.2 L factory turbo diesel engine delivers absolutely amazing performance. It's not only impressive - it's reliable, consistent and sustainable power. The cooler air returned to your engine by the Safari Intercooler system also ensures lower engine operating temperatures.
The standard vehicle's turbo charger function is to compress and force a greater volume of air into the engine, thus producing more power. However, it is a basic law of physics that when you compress air you increase it's temperature. As hot air is less dense than cool air at the same pressure, the total amount of air available to sustain the correct air/fuel ratio and to produce power is lessened. At high ambient temperatures, the level of power drops off by 15%.
Not any more! At Safari, all of our engineering experience and expertise has gone into our Patrol front mount intercooler which offers massive cooling capacity. Our high efficiency heat exchanger intercooler core utilizes light weight cast aluminium end tanks and offers exceptional efficiency and low restriction. That, along with our custom kevlar reinforced rubber air ducts and highest quality fittings ensures optimum performance with unsurpassed reliability and longevity under extreme operating conditions.
Warm air flows from the turbocharger to the intercooler, returning compressed cool air to the engine. The cooler air returned to your engine by a Safari Intercooler system ensures more power particularly at high ambient temperatures and more importantly, much lower engine operating temperatures with improved engine durability.
And being a front mount intercooler, it doesn't suffer the serious heat soak problems of top mount and water-to-air intercoolers, particularly during low speed hard slogging in 4WD conditions.
|The Safari commitment to outstanding performance. "The Safari philosophy will never change: Reliable performance must always be achieved."
An engine that runs cooler, runs more reliably longer. Higher speeds and/or greater load carrying conditions can be maintained too - without the normal fuel consumption penalty as more power for a given volume of fuel (given identical conditions) means more economical fuel consumption.
For overtaking, towing or touring, the Safari Intercooled System transforms the big Nissan with power and torque you may have never thought achievable.
|Safari Power and Torque
Please Note: The above dyno chart shows power and torque at the wheels.
At just 2,000 RPM,
the Safari TD42-T Intercooler System produces a tidal wave of torque.
A 16% increase at the wheels over the standard
vehicle. If you've ever traversed long stretches of sand, you'll
know what that means.
Installed on your TD42-T
turbo diesel, Safari's Intercooler System delivers an 18%
increase in power output at the wheels over the standard Patrol.
That certainly takes the russian roulette out of overtaking.
Facts and figures are one thing. Driving is another. You'll discover the best things about your Safari enhanced Patrol on the road, tracks or on the job. Torque is vastly improved straight off idle where the standard vehicle can be less than satisfying.
And best of all, you will be inspired by the Safari enhanced Patrol every day.
Like riding a tidal wave of torque.
- trickling over 4WD obstacles.
- towing big loads up steep grades stress free.
- blasting up sand dunes.
- passing a long truck with complete confidence that you have power to do it safely
