When you had the head gasket done, did you find out what caused the overheating in the first place?
Did you replace the thermostat with a genuine Nissan one..they are not cheap but they work well?
Did you have the radiator taken out, the top and bottom tanks taken off and the radiator rodded through to make sure there was total efficiency of the radiator?
have you checked that the water pump is working, and that the thermostatic fan hub is reacting correctly to heat, and actually working when the engine gets hot?
have you had the whole cooling system put under pressure and left overnight to see if there are leaks anywhere?
Do you have any white sickly sweet vapors coming from the tailpipe on startup?

SOURCE: Nissan Terrano Chugging

When you are going up a hill, the engine is under an incresed load - requiring more fuel and spark, so I'd first check all of the ignition related items (Plugs/wires/cap/rotor), and it isn't a bad idea to replace the fuel and air filters if you haven't in a while. Once those are checked, it is very very common for a TPS (Throttle Position switch) to develop "dead spots"; where under accelleration they cause a "chugging", which sometimes is quite unnoticable - unless/until vehicle is under a load ( eg. driving up a hill). A new TPS can be installed and set with a multi-meter - probes attached to the proper terminals, and have the output voltage set at .47V to .50 V at idle (Closed throttle). I'd bet this is the cause, as they usually do not set a DTC (Code - Service Engine light) . It isn't 100% for sure, an air flow meter and/or other things can cause this type thing as well (also a weak spark or coil, etc), but highly unlikely - other malfunctioning parts often set trouble codes as well, and usually either malfunction or they don't. Hope this helps and if you find anything else - please let me know.

This is almost certainly due to a blown head gasket, which will have to be replaced. Oil and water systems will need to be flushed and refilled with clean oil and coolant

Have a coolant pressure test done and compression test done. There is a real possibility of a cracked head but you may be lucky with just a warped head and blown gasket.

Well I think your on the right track, but before you dive into it, you should first check your radiator. A clogged radiator will cause that as well.

well any thing near to the red could and most likley would crack the heads, if there not all ready cracked!
if the gear box is working fine and it drives ok
i think you should first look at your water pump but you may have a blown head gasket thats why it boiles up on you could take it to the repair shop and ask them to do a " snifer test" it checks the water in the rad to see if there is any hydro carbon's in it if there are its a head gasket blown or a cracked head!
these hydro carbond's come from burning fule only and if any hot gases from any head gasket's or cracked head's are getting into the water jackets there will be some in there,,
its a common test to do first,,
it turns the test blue or red! then have a compreshion test done that could also pick up a blown head gasket
what ever happens you must not let that engine get over heated or it will do far more damage than just crack the heads ,,,,,,,and if im right
(which i think i am) when that gasket go's pop it will boile over in seconds not minuets watch it closly
