    I'm close.. but still haven't managed to finish off the drawer setup.
    Anyway with a help of a mate fitted the Provent 200 catch can yesterday. Making the bracket was the hardest bit.








    Racor 230R and the ARB comprssor (yet to be wired in) is in thanks to AMTS MKII bracket.
    Fitted in without any dramas..

    Been a while since I had a chance to update this...
    Haven't done much but managed to get the LF Genesis spoties and LED Bar wired up couple of months back.
    Pretty happy with the result

    Since the drawer setup, the rear end was sitting bit low for my liking..
    Changed springs with 20mm longer Dobinsons ..

    Did the 80,000k service.. plus few additional bits with Anth
    - Front brake pads
    - EGR clean
    - 7mm flow reduction plate

    Can't believe how much shxx in for just 80k. Hopefully with catch can and plate it should stay cleaner...

    Very happy with the initial feel.. engine is much more responsive in low revs

    They get worse than that, sometimes faster too.
    Nice work slipping that part in position, others have much more difficulty.
    Lets check it at 160k service, you can post pics of the cleanliness.
    Good to hear more consistency with the much more responsive down low, pretty standard with cool air.
    Lets see how fuel economy goes.

    Enjoy the drive!

    Changed both main and auxiliary batteries to OPTIMAs on the weekend..
    Had to cut the aux battery tray support bracket because of the height difference of the battery.
    Used an isolating battery terminal on the positive side for the main battery coz the standard terminal clip wouldn't reach..










    Also installed an Alternator Voltage Booster and happy with the result... 0.54V boost

    Without - sitting at 1500RPM



    Installed - sitting at 1500RPM

    Hi Shan

    nice to meet up with you on the last Dargo trip with Anth
    I am in the process of replacing my Aux (it has dropped a cell - died) and was considering the Optima D27M blue top, can I asked how much you paid and where did you get it from.

    Thanks

    Get Out and Enjoy.

    I'm guessing because they don't spill, come in spinner!

    After my aux battery went fully flat (left the oven running overnight.. ) couldn't revive it with multiple charging attempts.
    But I know from having the yellow top on my 120 that you don't have that issue with Optimas..

    Plus maintenance free, spill-proof.. and I know they last long.

    Yep.. they look good too

    So we were both right :-)

    Might do the same thing when my Century batteries die.
