    How many kms?

    Following is based on my 08 CRD experience:

    ProVent 200 Catch Can

    3" h/f exhaust (cat/muffler), many types available DEA, Redback. I use Berklee SS

    EGR plate(solid) _ block both ends of EGR assy (@ exhaust and inlet manifold)_Common that EGR pipe running behind back of motor splits and will be of no concern. Do exhaust manifold end at same time as installing exhaust.

    OBD11 scan tool_Maybe UltraGauge EM Plus or MX. I have EM Plus_both good for performance monitoring and needed to clear trouble / fault codes.
    http://ultra-gauge.com/ultragauge/ultragauge_wired.htm

    Install boost controller, many types available, the Dawes(3 bar racing) or Tillix are two I have used. Both good(currently use Tillix). Can install needle valve to control spool rate but CRD can run max spool (no needle valve required) or U can run the boost controller in conjunction with OEM VNT vac sol.

    They need to breath well. Would consider air box upgrade and pipe upgrade to 3" from airbox to turbo. Not necessary straight up but when it is time do it right.


    TIG welded intercooler_Worth looking @ Cross Country Upgrade intercooler(tube and fin). Maybe PDI FMIC - (both $1600). Thing with PDI FM (bar and plate), it is a tight fit with genuine bull bar but doable.

    Interesting when I opened link, was surprised as the installation pics are of my install that I sent PDI.

    If FM cooler is of interest have a read of following link from post #22 of my PDI 600x300x76mm install:

    Not needed straight up but there are benefits with ECU remap.

    It has 200k on it. Was looking at exhaust (also Berkley) and boost control first up. Followed by catch can and air box. Then looking at intercooler and ecu work. I guess I was sort of on the right track.

    Good approach. Have tried a few different configurations (if I can help). Must say the first mods I did (3" exhaust & manual boost control) provided significant performance gains.
    Would get EGT / boost gauges and scan tool now and then you can see the improvement progression as you go. The Ultra gauge EM plus provides a boost gauge as derived from ECU via MAP sensor (max read of nom 22.3psi/Nissan parameter limit via OBD11 port). I use a VDO boost gauge as well.

    When U do 3" exhaust, consider EGR plate (if suits), but do check out for exhaust manifold leaking (failed gasket resulting from warped manifold). Very common for ZD engine, would have inconel studs fitted even if no evidence of manifold defect.

    Check the stock IC for any leaking (evidence of oil smear at crimp point of tanks to core).

    I can second that, the best thing I've done to my Patrol is the needle & Dawse valve, made it so much more pleasant to drive.

    Recently noticed my fuel pump leaking, have learnt that is common problem with CRD. Good idea to have a look prior to pick up.

    Go under vehicle look up from drivers side (of block), just past front axle and you will see fuel pump. They leak from side plate that has 4 Torx cap hd bolt securing it to pump housing. Pump only cost between $1150-1500 (some charge $2k).

    First pic is pump 15km after clean.
