    Update on the K&N drop-in filter install (installed during 10K+ milleage; current milleage is 18K+):

    Notice the dust on the pointed area sa Mass Air Flow Sensor. Compromise on filtering in exchange for efficiency. Bawi nalang sa regular change ng good oil and oil filter. Fleetguard or Baldwin na to. Hehe.

    Bai doy,

    Is that the accumulated dust after using for 8k km with K&N filter? I need to closely monitor mine as i'm using hurricane filter (with less filtering ability than stock and K&N). Just installed the hurricane today on my 20k km PMS and the improvement in torque was felt immediately.

    I believe it's due to the K&N. The stock paper filter was a bit clean and white on the upper part when I replaced it with K&N. Improvement on throttle response and torque was also observed even at 10K+ milleage. Will clean the filter at 60K+ milleage for better filtration (para every 50K-mileage ang cleaning as opposed to the suggested 70K-mileage cleaning for city driving). I believe others clean every 15-20K.

    Anyone tried blocking their EGR?

    Any problems with the car's diagnostic computer after the block?

    Interested in blocking mine or installing an EGR delete pipe (kung available dito sa atin).

    AFAIK not advisable for CRDi and EC controlled cars. Only for old school type of engine (some okay, some say bad experience). Other have tried and check engine light turns on.

    Yup, I read that a member got a blown turbo after blocking the EGR. Hmm.. Pa-cleaning nalang siguro ako sa casa dito every 20K mileage. Around P800 daw ang charge with around 2 hours working time. Baka mabawasan na ng oil catch tank ang carbon deposits. Dapat sa 15K pa ako nagpa-cleaning. Outside casa na kase ako nagpa-service after the 10K mileage. I-frequent ko nalang din ang "spirited" driving.

    had my 20k km PMS the other day and only the mechanic trainee removed the EGR with the supervision of the senior mechanic. di naman masyado matrabaho ang pagtanggal as long as you know the job, meaning di super critical. mabuti kasi yong trainee kalmado at dahan dahan tinanggal ang part. did not see him slip his wrench on the bolts.
