I got plenty of mail on how to descriptions- so I decided to write a book- this is done, and I'm not happy with it.
Inspired by GoJeep I created my own website.
A site only related to Diesel and Diesel performance.

The major difference- access is granted only on invitation and member discussion.
I did this to prevent quick and dirt cheap access to knowledge.
If you want to know stuff- you simply have to pay for it. As I did previously before you.

Performance is not free.
Being able to over 200km/h top speed did cost me a bit. If you want to be able to do the same, so you have to pay too.

Upgrading will cost you - not on new parts but on replacement of old at least 14 year old parts.
Intercooler hoses will blow up. Seals will start to leak if you try to join in the 160hp+ class.


Your decision.
Last sentence:
The Vm engine is a good and reliable engine- if it fails, you simply did no maintenance- dig it!

I will read on the site, but no more writing, contact is still available via pm messages.

Good luck DW ! you are one of the good guys! No BS, just say it how it is.
I will miss your comments as they always are at a technical level second to none.
good luck with what ever you do.

Thankyou so much for our technical conversations on diesel a subject I have no real depth of knowledge on, I enjoyed them 1000% and gained a lot. Very much appreciated. Take care Deezelweazel and all the best for your future!!@@

Hi guys,

Just bought a 2001 XJ TD (UK import). Hasn't been treated the best and I need a new radiator and rocker cover gasket. Anybody have any good suggestions for suppliers either here or in the UK?

Also, I'll probably be looking to upgrade to sports extractors, but again finding it difficult to locate manufacturers and whatnot.

Has anyone done much with chip-tuning? Any info recommendations would be great!

Thanks!!

Talk to MudMonster on the group. He was making larger dump pipes at one stage. TD doesnt have a need for extractors as its a turbo diesel.
Spyder in the UK made a tuner box. I have one but have been told that it wont work on the 92 pin engine computer & as yours is a 2001 that is what it will probably have. Do you have 2 temp senders ~ heads 2 & 3 IIRC?


You are probably better forming a rocker gasket with silicone. Put down an even bead on the cover surface about 3mm thick, once it goes hard, wipe a thin layer of silicone on the stuff that has gone hard & bolt it down gently.

Probably easiest to get a radiator from UK. They are on ebay. The cooling system is very important as over heating will kill the heads very quick.

How many Km has it done?

Does it have a HP or LP front diff?

Good luck.
