TD5 EGR Removal Kits – Performance Mod

Looking to improve your TD5 Land Rover and get some more power and performance? Then the EGR REMOVAL KIT FROM TERRAFIRMA is a good place to start.

EGR Valve removal on a TD5 is a common mod.

By removing the EGR Valve this stops “dirty” exhaust gases being recirculated back through the intake and into the combustion chambers. The ERG system was simply fitted by manufacturers to help reduce emissions from the vehicle, but it affects its performance as well. By removing the EGR, intake air becomes cleaner (no exhaust gases) and removal of the valve itself also takes away the restriction to the airflow, meaning there is more air flow for the intakes which has more oxygen, meaning a bigger and better burn, MORE POWER!

On the “earlier” 300 TDi Discovery’s, all you needed was a blanking plate to blank off the exhaust tap off that went back into the intake system, on the TD5 however, its much better to still blank of the pipe and also remove the valve completely to remove the restriction as well, this needs to be replaced with a EGR Removal Kit.

These kits are available from numerous brand including Terrafirma, TD5 Alive, JGS 4×4, LRI Solutions plus many more, and range from £30 – £60 depending on the brand and are a DIY figment with only basic knowledge.

You TD5 will have more power and performance and will still pass emissions on MOT.

Terrafirma 2″ Suspention Kit (lift kit)

Suspension on your offroad vehicle is important!

TF231

Many vehicles, like Land Rover Defenders, have a good setup as standard but are limited when you try more twisty or dirty green lanes or offroad sites. Adding a good set of tyres is a must for any offroad driving but increasing the size of the wheels and tyres can also cause suspension issues, ie wheels rubbing in the arches under compression.

A good suspension kit is a must! Click here to read about suspension.

A good kit for a Land Rover that is getting good reviews by both basic and more extreme offroad users in the Terrafirma lift kit, Terrafirma 2″ Suspention Kit. http://www.terrafirma4x4.com/products_php.php?cat=106&grp=16

Seat Belt Pads – Land Rover

When offroading you can often find that you get shook about and bumped about and your seat belt can cut and dig into your shoulder. I bought a set of Land Rover Seat Belt Pads to see if this helps.

I have to say that i have been using these for over a year now and much more comfy and no more cutting in to my shoulder when offroading.

Why not just not wear your seat belt off road you might ask?? well thats silly, you are more likely to come to a sudden stop when offroading if you hit a tree stump or something and even more likely to roll over the vehicle offroad than on road, a seat belt will save you for nasty injuries or death!

Hi-Lift Jack Handle Keeper

Hi-Lift jack are an essential tool to have with you when offroading, the only downside to the jack is that when you go over the bumps the handle of the jack hits the main body of the jack and rattles. This can become very annoying.

However there is a solution!

The Hi-lift Jack Handle keeper attached to your Hi-Lift jack when not in use and holds the handle in place, stopping that annoying rattle.

If you have a Hi-Lift jack, which I suggest you should, and want to stop it rattling then this is a MUST.

Hi-Lift Jack Offroad Base

Hi-Lift Off-Road Base is designed to alleviate jack sinkage on soft surfaces, and can be used with all models of Hi-Lift jacks.

Newly designed Off-Road Base has serrated teeth along one complete side of the base. These teeth allow the user to scrape at hard dirt or gravel, to make a clear flat spot for the base to sit while being used in the lifting process.

A clear flat area gives the Off-Road Base a better footing during the lifting process also. There has also been a hole drilled thru the center, which allows the user to attach the base to the Hi-Lift jack bar for storage when not in use.

Using a 5/16 inch x 4 inch bolt and wing-nut (not provided), the Off-Road Base is easily attached to the Hi-Lift jack for easy access when needed, and convenient storage when not.
