Rebirth of the zd30 bmw

power curve performance, zd3, horse power

So it’s been a while, but the ZD30 BMW is back alive!! It had auto issues and was parked for a bit. Long story but we pulled the ZD30DI out and put it in a navara, brass button clutch, front mount and all the bits expect for the turbo, has a crap turbo on it currently which will be removed and more suitable unit installed. The original build in the nav we used a 79 series VDJ turbo that made 220hp with std tune and 25psi, the current turbo made 175hp at 30psi with same tune, after some tweaks and tuning is making 220hp and drives really good but the old turbo was much better, so either go back to...

Direction-Plus PreLine – how it works

Jump on any facebook group or forum and at some point, you will hear someone ask about an additional fuel filter.  Power Curve Performance requires a system that is also able to work alongside our engine performance upgrades.  Setting a standard of performance is not just a fast car it is a vehicle that consistently performs. For this reason, we use Direction-Plus PreLine - how it works and an explanation of the dual layer media that is at the heart of why it is so effective separating water.   In the early years of mechanics, a technician is educated about the components of diesel and its tendency to attract water.  Additionally, many Power Curve Performance clients are looking to upgrade or create reliability...

2015 ZD30 CR Auto Nissan Patrol

2015 ZD30 CRD Auto Nissan Patrol

There are many modification options out there for the 2015 ZD30 CR Auto Nissan Patrol.  Fortunately, Power Curve Performance provide the Sunshine Coast with a one stop 4x4 centre.  We can provide it all from servicing, a vast range of suspension, exhausts, snorkels and performance upgrade packages. Enhancing power in a diesel is much more achievable than a petrol. For the below, we have upgraded the exhaust to a Legendex. This is Australia's toughest 3" stainless off-road exhaust system, in fact the only exhaust with an off-road warranty. Legendex delivers serious grunt & rumble. That means a more efficient engine for extended engine life, fuel economy and more power, especially when combined with a Power Curve Performance ECU Tune- and, of course, that...

Nissan Navara D40 2″ Suspension

Nissan Navara D40 2" suspension

Finally, the local owner has himself a 4x4.  New owner of the Nissan Navara D40 2" Suspension was sick of his dream of being a 4x4 owner.  So he went out and purchased himself a D40. Not long into the own, he started to notice the rest of the 4x4 out there and that he potentially owned a family car and not a 4x4.  Best way to rectify this he felt was to lift it off the ground and upgrade the tyres so that he COULD take the D40 off road. Owner of the D40 lives in Burnside himself with his little family and after driving past the Power Curve Performance workshop and children attending the same school as Patrick and...
