Halden you are correct. Properly sized they cant be beat both in responsiveness and overall power. Sooo many people hear “twin turbo” and think your shooting for 1,000hp and drag racing. I could easily bolt on a larger, single turbo and still hit my hp goal, but i wanted it to be a clean, fun, and spirited driver, 3 words not normally associated with a trooper haha! As far as i know itll be one of the most powerful 4jb1t’s ive seen on a forum.
Anyways, heres some tech info for anyone else wanting to put one of these in their already diesel troopers, or pup if it would fit. From the factory they come with 12v glowplugs. Even though im modifying the engine a good bit, i wanted to maintain a seamless, factory feel, and i couldnt stomach the thought of cutting out the old wire harness and butchering-in a manual 12v system. So i spent a whole saturday researching glowplugs. I ended up having to download all the glowplug manufactors product catalog for austraila. Bosch listed this as the factory plug:
Going further into the catalog, i found all the physical specs:
I know you cant see what all the numbers mean, but it tells you the thread pitch and size, overall length, heating element length, voltage etc. now that i had all the exact specs, i knew what to hunt for. I finally ended up on denso’s website, and downloaded their catalog and found exactly what i had been looking for:
A denso dg-241 has the exact same specs, only it is 6 volts instead of 11. I could only locate them in the UK, and they are a whopping $35/ea. I ordered one to double check, and it fit perfect. Ill probably have to make a new bus bar, but ill be able to utilize the wonderful Isuzu QOS.
Up next will be making sure the idle up system is transferred over, and ill be happy.
