Hi Brian,

I found the banjo fitting on the back of the intake, I think. Is that just behind the airfilter and hard to see by the firewall? It has a clear vacuum hose coming from it and going...

EGR Disabling, Good Idea?

Hey Guys,

I've heard people say that the EGR is a bad idea on a diesel and it should be disabled to prevent it from harming other parts. Is this true? If so, how can I do it? The vacuum cables...

I'm Converting to WVO, too
