That V6, standard engine?

definitely keep the fwd switch on the 4x4 transfer box, one of the best mods you can do on the car and should have been done during manufacture if you ask me. No point burning the 4x4 box out when sat at 70 on the motorway.

no, it is not the right thing to do.  The system works off a hydraulic clutch similar to an automatic clutch in a gearbox. The 4x4 transfer box is fine when the front and rear wheels turn at the same speed, but if the tread is slightly different then the front / rear wheels turn at different speed and can cause damage to the transfer box. Apart from at times when you need the 4x4 then turn the switch off and save the life in the clutch pack.

yeah, u should turn it off whenever you don't need it.

I have a sport transfer box for racing and I only turn mine on for racing it.

My turbo got back from rebuild last week, finally no more blue smoke and oil consumption, it runs much much better, boosts earlier then before and its awesome :) will fit boost, oil and exhaust temp gauges soon! Will post a video next time i race same v6 :) i also changed fuel filter which was very old and mounted BACKWARDS :)

I also recommend fitting an oil pressure gauge, 1 of the most important gauges you can have.

Also where did you get your turbo refurbished? a few people on here are looking at refurbishing them.
