Hi to all, in advance please forgive me if the below question seem to be somewhat lame. We have just purchased a 2008 Patrol 3.0 CRD (ex police vehicle) from Pickles Auctions and awaiting delivery.

Q1. I’m keen to remove the “Common Rail” decals from the doors, does anyone know if there is a easy way to do, so as not the damage door or duco?

Q2. Would like to increase the torque for towing a 2 tonne full van without going over board and maintaining reasonable safety margin on the motor, under consideration is having it chipped or D-Gassed, would like your thoughts on which one you feel would be best suited as I can only afford to do one not both at this stage?

Q3. Is it also recommended to blank off the EGR on the GU 6 or just from earlier models?

Q4. If there are any forum members that live in the Nowra NSW area that are into home servicing and improvements to their vehicle of the same model as we have purchase I would like to pick your brains on ideas, if your interested please PM me.

Any help greatly appreciated.

1: hair dryer, NOT a paint stripper. warm them and peel them off. then wipe the area down with clean white rag and some "wax and grease remover" which you can buy from auto parts shops. I say white rag because I've had dye come out of some cloth once.

2: I dont own a 3 litre but from what I gather around here you must do the modifications to prevent the ZD30 grenade problem where the engine destroys itself. Do this first... then consider performance mods, I would use the chip first, they are similar performance gains but the chip does not use up cargo space with the gas tank.

3: I dont know, look in the "search" section which isnt very obvious, its in the grey bar near the top of the pave over to the right.

4: cant help you there, but try the earch, theres LOTS of brain picking already done.

One more thing: Thank you very much for using real words and appropriate punctuation. manyppl want help but typ lik this and you cant figre our wot totally awsum sik as modz they wont coz you cant figure out wtf they r tryin 2 say and they go on for about 10 lines of incmprehsabull waffle and dont use spell chequer which coms free with firefox just imagine wot google translator makes of this for ppl in russia poland etc who participatewith google translator. werd!
