Summer Off-road Adventures

Hi @Gaurav Sonii understand from Fred that you are driving a tuned Pajero, I am driving 2008 3.0LWB which has the transmission upshift issue. I am planning to do ecu remap from chipcentic, so prior to getting this done, thought of getting feedback from you on the engine performance and any other issues confronted post upgrade.

Hey @Naveen Raj I did my car tuning using unichip… it gave me 5 engine maps to choose from based on the drive.. a much more economical than standard stock map to a high power output map… my major issue was the transmission not holding the gear 1 which is needed for long climbs… unichip solved that situation for me… now it holds gear one with 6000 rpm (duff duff sound )as long/as high momentum takes me!

I am not so sure about chip centric as it’s a one time tune with no choices. but neither have I seen it personally.. so it’s your better judgement. Do let me know your experience.

Thanks @GauravSoni. I have been told the remap will hike the rpm limit to 6000 (which I hope will resolve the upshift issue) complemented by 25hp increase and 30 to 40Nm torque gain.. will let u know the outcome after the remap..

@Naveen Raj I would suggest that you make sure that they confirm that upshifting will be resolved.. I think it needs some cabling to be done from the engine bay.

Well noted @GauravSoni

@GauravSoniI have done the ecu remap, the upshift now happens at around 5800rpm, previously it was happening at 5500rpm, I could feel the difference in torque In first and second gear between 3000 to 4000rpm which I believe will make my hill climb effortless than before, but still I have to learn to control my rpm below 5800. Now will have to wait and see how these performance figures will help me in sand.

Unfortunately the garage did not provide any sort of report for the performance figures they claimed nevertheless I could feel the difference while driving.


I have checked with unichip but the price quoted ( 2650 AED) was not within my budget.

That’s amazing @Naveen Raj… what I understand is your max rpm has been bumped upto 5800…if I read it correctly , it mean that upshift happens but now at 5.8k!! 
that’s definitely better than stock…

unichip is expensive. I paid 3k about 7 months ago for the Q4 version. 
 

C u in soon in sand!

      Hi Everyone,
      I have a SWB Pajero 3.8 and looking to buy new AT tyres.
      Preferably going with 265/65r18. Very common size for Pajero in Australia and South Africa with no issues.
      I originally looked at Geolanders Go15 but I've seen some people complaining about the sidewall strength. I indent to visit the wadis frequently, so I'm slightly put off by that. The other option is Kumho AT51.
      At this stage neither tyre is available in the size I want but they are available in 275/65r18. There are mixed opinions for running that size in the 3.2 diesel versions but I can't seem to find any information on the 3.8. Although I've seen a couple running that size around here.
      Has anyone tried 275/65r18 on their Pajero? I'd appreciate to hear your opinions.
      Theo

      With every carnity drive setting newbie level higher and higher, so this week demands bit more challenging and thrilling terrain of Murqquab to Lisalli. It's a combination of various set of dunes from small - med - large, where smaller takes the name of nasty technical dunes and big dunes demand good momentum to continue riding until you are through to a flat area. This time I plan to introduce ridge riding, slip face attack and side sloping. These all three are expert level skills, but we will start learning these in the intermediate terrain to give time to absorb and react. This area is very famous for Gazelle sighting so riding with your best long range camera is highly advisable.

      I am looking to install light bars for night driving. With a wide array of options to choose from I am Finding it hard to make a choice. Can anyone based on their experience recommend
      1.brands that have stood up to the job and which ones to avoid?
      2. What is a the reasonable wattage that I should look for e.g 420? 
      3. For e.g  is the LED rated for 420w output or 420 w halogen equivalent ? (Former is better)
      4. Which configuration is ideal ? 1 bar on top + 2 small beamers on the hood + 1 each on side + 1 back? Is this overkill?
