    Good day fellow tsikoteers! I have been a long time inactive member but a very avid reader of the forum. All of your inputs here have helped me finally decide on a car purchase. Took the plunge and got a Savannah White 2015 Montero Sport GLX-SE. I know the new model has come out already, but the price of this model was too hard to pass up. Have been very blessed, and I am quite happy with the performance of my unit. Got it just last Saturday, and barely has 200 kms on it.

    Quite happy with the FC, got around 13.7 km/li from Calamba to Tagaytay and back.

    Now looking for some modifications both for aesthetics and with regard to engine upkeep. Have already contacted sir Zix about an OCC installation and possible EGR blanking. Have been researching on the net about both and it seems that the OCC installation is quite essential especially for turbo boosted vehicles. Now, the with regard to EGR blanking, there seems to be 2 schools of thought:

    1. It is essential since we would not re-introduce "dirty" air into the intake manifold;
    2. Leave the EGR because it helps reduce pump losses during low throttle openings.

    My question is to those who have had their EGRs blanked, how has the performance been? Did your fuel consumption increase? I am now aware that NOx emissions will definitely increase.

    Thanks and more power to all of us! God bless!

    Are you starting to move on an incline? Let it stay sa 1st gear for some time, I usually shift at 2k rpm. Wala naman akong nakitang issue.

    Never ko experience this sir during our trip to baguio via kennon road last January. Full load ako at yun RPM naglalaro between 2-3K rpm, gear is on 2nd,3rd and 4th. Always overtaking pa ako sa mga slow moving vehicles.

    Magandang araw po!! Meron po ba kayo alam na dealership na willing mag accommodate ng cash transaction para sa naka promo ngayon na GLX manual? Every dealer na natawagan ko, priority nila yung kukuha via in-house financing.

    Maraming salamat!!!

    thank you for clarifying that. yes i was aiming for a wider power band. but if it's better to have my ECU remapped i think ill go that route.

    Just had my EGR valve blanked, OCC installed and K&N filter dropped in by sir Zix! As a bonus, also had my optitron done! Galing ni sir Zix! Came from Laguna and sulit ang maagang gising pagluwas ng Manila. Wala pa ako 40mins sa shop niya. Salamat sa mga tips din sir Zix! Until next time mods! Hehehe
