    Don't bother with a catch can, they hardly breathe at all. Fit the EGR blank for $5 and be done with it, you will not get any intake build up with the blanking plate installed... The people that market the catch cans make bulk coin off them, whilst blanking plates they make nothing from or don't even sell, so they are always going to say buy the catch can, you need it... utter BS.

    Spend your money on a pre fuel filter, 30 micron to get rid of the bigger garbage before it gets to factory filter.

    Ok cool. So just cut a bit of plate up for EGR.

    Any codes likely to come up?

    Sounds like it's not needed so more beer for you.

    I'm still interested either way as it seems like the two are slightly different:

    1: EGR blanking stops exhaust gas from being recirculated
    2: oil separator is for crankcase vent fumes going back into inlet and coating everything in oil

    will look at fuel filters also

    2 micron filter, surely that introduces a restriction to the fuel flow?
    Given the cost of rebuilding modern diesel systems, no way i would fit anything post the factory filter... all manufacturers would point the finger at that change and there goes any claim.

    I have a Provent 200 on my 1HD-FT Landcruiser as there is a little mist of about 50ml every 5k kms and I'm running 28psi as opposed to the factory 13psi. I know of many Ranger owners who don't even get that amount after 20,000+ kms whom insist that you must buy a catch can.

    You'd get a catch can if you didn't want to fit an EGR blank, as you'll definitely get intake build up from a factory setup.

    ebay EGR plates, I wouldn't bother making one... be ready for a cunt of a time installing it though!

    Yep I'll take the one from Nugs and pay him in beer.

    I googled the plate and yep for $15 I wouldn't bother making it. Also found some forum that said it was a shit job.

    EGR blanking plate wil also stop water ingress into the inlet tract when water cooled EGR takes a dump.

    Cause of mine was never determined but EGR was leaking water upon inspection............... too convenient to blame considering I was driving in a flooded street when it borked, general consensus is the crank angle sensor failed and allowed incorrect fuel timing causing the hydro lock.

    Will never know though.

    No problems so far on the 100 or so fitted from brand new.

    Done about 6,000km now, took the family up to Kalbarri over the weekend and went out for a day trip to Murchison house station, was awesome day out in the sand, let the tyres down to 25 and it went through great.

    I got mine for $55,985 with tech pack, I got 4 new tyre pressure sensors thrown in for my new rims. I didn't realise but it only came with drivers floor mat. Should have asked for it but didn't think people still had to do that.

    I just installed tonneau cover from Aussie Tonneau's.

    I'll try and dig up some more details but we fit a 2 micron after the OEM and due to being a Authourized Vehicle Modifier for Ford we had to do extensive testing to prove the filter does not present any restriction or something along those lines.

    Thanks for the link. Something for me to consider.

    I'm up to 9,000km now and really enjoying the rig. The tech pack has radar cruise control which is excellent for busy roads where you can't be arsed maintaining a distance. I ended up turning off the lane keeping feature as I found some certain situations where it was trying to follow the white lines but the road had a deviation and it would try to hold you against the line. The electric powered steering (no hydro) is excellent for moving around in tight situations and dirt tracks.
    Engine torque is mint and chucking the auto into sport selects gears nicely.

    What are your thoughts on the Everest vs this? Are these Hilux like in the rear spring rates?

    I've not driven the Everest so cannot comment. The rear is pretty stiff but the suspension tune was very well sorted on the standard tyre package. I have to run these tyres at 32 for the road otherwise it's very jittery.

    I've got an PX1 XLT and have driven the Everest a few times. Everest is a fair bit softer (nicer) in the rear, front end feels the same. If your towing a lot like i do, Ranger all the way. Mines got a canopy which was enough to soften the rear on the Ranger, drives fine for what it is.

    Permanently at GVM the Everest shears the rear axles, also going offroad the hand brake shoe fills with mud rendering it useless.

    If you get the itch for more BPT motorsport have almost got their R&D finnished on DPF delete EGR removal ect. Also fixed the falling flat after 3000rpm.

    Ok cool. Those guys are in the same suburb as us.
    It's funny but I'm more than happy with the engine performance. It pulls the xw on trailer up Goldfields Rd easy as.

    I'll fix the broken links on first page tomorrow.
