    Today fitted the snorkel. Last week was roof rack cross bars and basket along with LED driving lights.

    "Playdough" is now starting to look like a 4WD now rather than a "Mall Crawler"

    Next on the list are 50mm lift, Foxwing Awning and decent A/T tyres. Oh and fit the winch that I purchased for the Surf 4 years ago and never got around to fitting

    No painting required other than treating the cut/drilled edges with rust preventative and touch up paint. Gave the edges a coat of wax protective spray as well. The only other cost was $10 for a couple of metres of EPDM 12x7mm foam strip to seal the scoop to the bonnet (12mm was too wide but it was the narrowest they stock in that profile - I just cut it in half lengthwise).

    Lets see if there is a reduction in intake air temps and maybe EGT's too.







    Cheers

    Yesterday I noticed some clear coat peeling off the edge of my headlights, so I decided to re clear them. Looks good again

    Dropped the Reader on it to clear the codes, all is good.

    Awesome job on the scoop, it looks like it rolled out of the factory with it on.

    My Prado got a new EGR position sensor, i polished some yellowing out of the headlights, adjusted the handbrake, passed it for pink slip and got another years rent on her. I also ordered an EGT gauge and some Philips extreme vision headlight globes.

    That looks great. Out of interest what improvements will a mod like this bring?

    A slight reduction in intake air temps and possibly EGT as well and, oh, I dunno, looks cool?
    Form and function, perfect?

    When I'm towing up hill I have been getting IAT's up around 90 deg so see how it goes next time we're out and about with the camper on a trip.
    I probably wouldn't have done the mod if it didn't really only cost $65 or so and some of my time.

    Just ordered AMTS shift lever repair kit as suddenly got quite hard to move out of park. Hopefully that should sort it out.
