Hi all so I have finally had to upgrade (or downgraded depending on how you look at it) my old GQ (the body hasn't lasted aswell as the TD42) and I have got myself a new 2010 GU man 86,000 on the clock and has been nannad around for that time... I hear lots of mixed things with the the new ones but am looking to see what/if any preventative mods you guys have been doing or should be done, I have heard about dawes valves and egt sensors, is this good for all the zd30ddti or just if your having probs?

thanks in advance guys

You don't need to do anything whatsoever with a CRD.

I asked this same question many times before I got my 2011 gu. I asked on forums, asked mates who had them, spoke to mechanics etc etc, and they all said exactly what Ray said above. You dont need to do anything whatsoever with a crd :D

I've fitted a provent catch can (surprising how much oil it collects) & fitted the EGT probe into the aftermarket 2.5" Redback Exhaust.
I figured it could not hurt to keep the oil out of the intake & likewise be able to monitor EGT's particularly when towing.
Scanguage shows me boost also (even though the later model CRD's don't have many problems with overbooting) & I did fit a fan to the intercooler though don't know how much difference it made.

Because this applies to all diesels, I didn't mention it in my first post, but I'd highly recommend blocking the EGR valve. That's about it.
