Hi all, I'm a new Patrol owner putting together a NADS shopping list. The choices/options for parts are a bit bewildering. I've popped a few options in here for the various pieces but also would like to know what other people are running.

1. Catch can

I've seen Provent recommended in a few threads:
Provent: Universal ProVent Catch Can Kit for Crankcase 12mm (1/2") Outlet Nissan Patrol 3.0L ZD30 OS-PROV-09

2. EGT & Boost Guage
Not sure what to get here. I've read the quality of some guages are questionable.

3. Exhaust
I've seen a fair few options here but not sure which one to go with.

4. Tillix Controller

5. Intercooler
Have seen this one recommended (it's fairly expensive though at $1550)

Ebay ones are significantly cheaper but I'm wondering if that's a false economy.

Is it advisable to get a bigger bonnet scoop also?

Thanks!

1. Catch can - can't comment on the ProVent. I just got an eBay cheapie ($50) and filled it with coarse steelo pot scourers then extended the inlet pipe to half - 2/3rds down so the gas filters through the steelo's.

2. Gauges: Boost, EGT and water temp is good too. I run Autometer Phantom Boost and EGT. I am also in the process of wiring in a Redarc triple gauge - oil temp and oil pressure and extra temp (can be used for oil, water or anywhere you can attach a temp probe). These are the more expensive gauges but are reliable. Some slightly cheaper brands like Saas and VDO are also quite reliable. I also run an ECUtalk which gives lots of other engine values and fault codes.

3. Exhaust - Pretty much any 3 inch exhaust will do as long as it has mandrel bends. The only thing you need to decide is how loud you want your truck to sound - muffler or no muffler.

5. Intercooler - there is a thread on here about a week ago for intercoolers, read that as @OldMav has lots of knowledge on them.
