Re: viscous hub

As long as you don't plough into the water at 100 km/h there shouldn't be any real problems. My ranger had 900 km on the OD when it did its first bonnet deep water crossing and has done a few since (Remote living life).

Re: Ranger PX2 Intercooler Pipe Upgrade

Hey Maachine with out hearing the noise i cant tell you if its normal or not but you will get more turbo noise with the aftermarket pipes installed especially doing the hotside upgrade as you get rid of the resonator/muffler. I would just make sure all clamps are done up tight.

Never known the cheap Chinese crap to last that long. If the lugs don't tear off they usually crack in half. You must have a rare pair. I am the opposite, never known genuine Maxtrax to fail. Tearing lugs off is the drivers fault, too many revs . Totally agree with this ^^^. I have used mine in san...
