To answer a few of the questions:

The 2 water tanks are in front of the axle are both fresh water tanks and are already linked.
The grey water is behind the axles.

There are 2 110AH AGM batteries that are mounted in external boxes to the chassis just in front of the axles.


Springs and WDH have been ordered and should arrive early next week. So everything should be installed and ready to take it out over the NSW school holidays.



Slightly unrelated, but considering the weight we will be pulling, is there any relatively cheap performance upgrades that we should be considering? Things such as the iDrive?

The only upgrade for towing would be the MM Auto Mate. I have an iDrive but that's not going to help. Locking the TC and being able to monitor your transmission temps is what you need to do.

If you don't fit Auto Mate then tow in 4th and get something to give you the temp read out like an Ultra Gauge or a cheaper option of Torque Pro on you phone with a cheap sender unit in the OBDII port.

The Pajero Sport has the 8 speed Aisin auto trans so it does not need Auto Mate, the factory AT program is very good. Marshall looked at whether it was worth his development cost to do Auto Mate for the Pajero Sport and the small improvement he would would be able to achieve would not be worth it.

An iDrive will not change the performance if you really want to do something then a Engine ECU remap is the only real choice.

oh yeah sorry, I was thinking Pajero, not Sport.

I get very high trans temps when towing up / down hills... you have to be able to monitor it.

Hi Flying,

What do you all high ATF temperatures?
Do you drive in Auto or Sport Mode?

100 - 115 is not uncommon, always use paddles when towing, never use cruise

Agree these are high ATF temps
What weight are you towing?
After a long hard climb and the ATF increases does if decrease on the downhill, stay the same of increase?

2600 -2700... It would usually not go higher after you reach the top but can sometimes stay high for a few minutes until you get to a nice calm section where you can get nice airflow and not have and demand on the box... usually drops to 80-90 within 5 mins or so

Hi Folks,

So had the new springs and bump stops installed today, here are the numbers:

The below tables are:
Before - Unhitched
After - Hitched

Before spring upgrade:
_____Before___After___Diff
FL____530_____540____10
FR____530_____540____10
BL____555_____505___-50
BR____545_____505___-40
TB____460_____370___-90


After Spring upgrade:
_____Before___After___Diff
FL____530_____540____10
FR____530_____540____10
BL____585_____545___-40
BR____580_____545___-35
TB____515_____435___-80



Comparing just the backs

Unhitched:
____Old Spring: 545
____New Spring 580
____Raised: 35

Hitched:
____Old Spring: 505
____New Spring 540
____Raised: 40

So looking much better, haven't taken it for a drive with the van yet, just hitched up in the drive way for measuring.

WDH also arrived so will work on getting that attached and adjusted during the week.
