    The Torsen LSD is for the center diff.

    I'm asking about a rear LSD. Apparently it has. But I didin't have the chance to physically check whether the media unit had LSD.

    baka iba yung VGT sa VNT.

    Hyundai uses BorgWarner VGT (i read somewhere while researching about it before we bought one).

    2.2L VGT CRDi I-4 engine ( i assume CRDi are all the same template engine design), it can produce 150Hp and 335Nm

    3.0L VGT CRDi V-6 produces 240HP with 480Nm of Torque (Hyundai Veracruz 3.0L CRDi)

    Nope. Variable geometrical turbo(VGT) is something completely different. Variable nozzle turbo (VNT) worked on the compressor side and didn't have to deal with the high temps of exhaust gas. VGT works on exhaust side to eliminate lag and is far more effective in delivering higher torque and horsepower.

    I don't see the Variable Nozzle Turbo of Toyota in that list...

    Seems like an acronym play to confuse it with the original Garett Variable Nozzle Turbine.

    Thanks for clarifiying this once and for all.

    AFAIK the front & rear axles only have open diffs. Though the Prado LC120 has a rear LSD.

    turbine is also the same for turbo.... kahit tignan niyo definition ng VNT/VGT sa toyota thailand website at sa wikipedia, the same lang. mas malakas lang VGT ng hyundai kasi european made ito kesa VGT ng toyota kasi toyota's VGT is japanese-made. kahit tignan niyo sa fortuner club website lahat kami agree na our diesel fortuners are VGT equipped... kaya lang mas malakas 3.0li ng hyundai kesa toyota kasi sa hyundai V6 na while toyota inline 4 pa lang... hope this settles it....

    Konting OT lang.

    Be wary of the articles you read from Wikipedia. Not all are true. Kahit sino puede magsulat doon.

    Don't get me wrong. Wikipedia is extremely useful, and I'm proud to be one of their "small" donors.

    really?....i just always thought that you wouldnt need a center diff lock when your 4WD is not full time for 4WD.. there is no use for a center diff lock if your not running a fulltime 4WD...

    Because Super Select gives the option of running the vehicle as 2WD or fulltime 4wd. On my Pajero I just leave it in fulltime mode. This ability to be run on both 4wd (on pavement) and 2WD is a feature unique to the Super Select (aka Active Trac) system when it was introduced in '91 (not sure today).

    During that time, you had to choose between a full time 4wd Land Cruiser (no way to turn of system) or a part time 4wd Land Cruiser (whose 4wd mode cannot be used on pavement, off road use only) but you can never have both. Unlike with Super Select where you have the advantages of part time and full time 4wd in one system.
