Re: Is DPF issue for 2014 CRD fixed now?

I wonder what is the legality of removing the DPF? I guess it is part of the emission system and any tampering of the emission system can carry a hefty fine from the EPA even though it is not needed...

Re: Is DPF issue for 2014 CRD fixed now?

I wonder if the DPF issue can be related to particular usage pattern? I have had my GC for nearly 5 months (Sept 2013 built) and my car spent most of its life in the inner suburb of Sydney including...

Re: Any upgrades to the '14 Overland air suspension?

If you are willing to sacrifice some off road performance, stiffer anti-sway bar will improve the high speed stability. I have not looked into it, I assume the STR8 anti sway bars are stiffer and...

Re: 8speed: torque converter behavior in OD?

My feeling with the 8 speed is the converter is always locked or at least with minimal slip.

Instead of unlocking the torque converter it would just drop down a gear or two. It works very...

Re: Whats your take on the trans with this diesel?

I have 3 comments about the transmission, apart from these I think it is a great transmission.

1, It holds onto 1st gear for too long when starting from a steep incline (go down)
2, The engine...

Re: 8 speed transmission behavior

Ok I think I have worked this out at least with kick down. When in paddle shift mode the transmission will ONLY kick down if the engine rpm is at 2000 or under with the currently selected gear.

Re: 8 speed transmission behavior

For me I would like the ability to hold the gear so that I can use the low-end torque of the turbo diesel instead of it kicking down.

Re: ScanGauge II

Lets just say I would like some baseline. However the inability for the lock the transmission in a a particular gear is going to make wheel dyno'ing difficult.

Re: Best wax over sealant??

I would put my vote for Meguiar's Ultimate wax. It is easy to apply, ie no swirl marks, does not mark plastics, etc and last for a long time.

Re: 8 speed transmission behavior

So it looks like the diesel transmission is programmed differently to the V6. It will not hold gear in paddle / manual mode in ECO, non ECO or sport mode which is a little bit disappointing!

Yes WOT is wide open throttle, I guess it is a bit misleading as mechanically there is no real throttle in a diesel engine. Maybe I should just call it "flooring it" :)

Re: For those who are thinking about Bluespark...

The ZF 8HP70 can handle 700Nm of torque so there is a fair bit of head room on the transmission front.
