Once you go electric you never go back.

Put a new cat back exhaust, a Borla. Not particularly a challenging job, sounds different, can't notice any difference in performance. So I also cleaned up the throttle body a bit. Later, driving to the Post Office, just as I pull into the lot, it dies, roll into a spot. Check all my connections I undid during the clean up, but still no restart. Monkey about with it for 15 minutes, just about to call AAA when I notice I can't hear the fuel pump kick in. I check the fuse and wiggle stuff, still no joy. Then I remember the impact switch! Couldn't remember if it is resettable or not, but I push in on the top, it clicks! All back to normal. I guess when I had the MAF out I must have bumped it and it finally went over center after a mile or two. These trucks just need to f@#k with you a bit every now and then.

Replaced my "custom" tailgate with a bright shinny new one from Rocky Mountain. The paint job is a camo Krylon rattle can. Pretty close to NATO Olive Drab...at least for now.

I'm still working on the 200tdi conversion and we're stuck on the fuel pump setup. I'm using my 2.5td fuel filter and trying to mate it with the 200tdi engine. Any ideas?

Finished up a new rear bumper/receiver hitch/spare tire carrier. Still need to add a hi lift mount to the carrier and paint it.

I did this very same thing with my conversion. PM me your smartphone number or email address and I'll send you some photos. It's easier than you think.

Thanks everyone. I've ordered the 200tdi fuel filter head, fuel injector lines, and an oil filter from RovahFarm. Please do send me photos of your setup and your setups for the front mounted intercooler and hose. Thanks again.

The steel injector lines or the plastic lift pump to fuel filter head and then filter head to IP lines ?

Sprayed the extended breakfast (or "slam panel" as ULC called it) in preparation for the new Alisport intercooler install.

....and yes, my tractor shed doubles as my spray booth....and yet I bet I still can paint better than most shops in the UK!
