Has anyone installed the weeks 1 & 2 along with GDE tune and passed an emissions test? Well I guess it does not matter now because I installed both the 1 & 2 Weeks kits today. The only thing I see that could be improved is a new V band clamp for the cap on the exhaust manifold. I work in aviation and a nice T bolt similar to the one one the intake would be nice. My clamp is not in very good condition and has a small leak. So I will be going to the dealership on Monday to get a new one. Other than that issue the kit installed great, and having the use of air tools makes it even easier.

Just got my kit last night. I was very impressed with the packaging. Only from JBA (expanded foam that custom-fits the arms) have I seen a kit that was more thoughtfully packaged. The nice part was that everything was recyclable. Much like the available battery tray, it's very green.

It was a little funny to see a business card and a sticker... but no included instructions. The online ones are quite good and having a QC code to scan on my mobile and pull up the pdf was a nice touch.

Is the EGR blockoff cap in the kits that include stage1 & 2 just a mulligan? I can see using it if you split the install into two steps, but I hate to see you loosing on your margins if you don't NEED to include it. Just a thought.

P.S. I was motivated to do this since I started getting glow plug faults (first time ever) and have a new 7v etecno set sitting in a box several years old. Hopefully taking off the entire intake will make that job straightforward to do at the same time.

it really makes it a snap. You will still want to get the alternator out of the way for 1&2 though.

Thanks for the awesome feedback!

Yep, that is there if you just want to do the elbow kit (Stage 1) and wait to do the full delete (Stage 2). We recommend doing them at the same time, but the Stage 2 does take significantly longer. So if one is in a hurry, it's nice to have the option!

We designed the elbow kit to make replacing glow plugs easier and faster. I would say it cuts the time of that job in half, maybe more.

I have weeks stage one and two - since they came out. I also have the in-tank lift pump and wiring harness. Weeks' stuff is well designed, well made and well packed. I have a new Odyssey grp 34 - otherwise I'd have his battery tray too!

I installed his battery tray and used my grp 34 battery in it till I was able to purchase the bigger grp 65 NorthStar AGM. Just did not use the hold down plate on top that came with the kit, used a temporary one I made.... :wink:

To dgeist, or anyone interested. If you haven't already done the weeks kit. You could essentially go ahead and do all the work on drivers side, including removing the egr and egr cooler at one time. You would have to bolt the plate meant to block off EGR to FCV pipe on the end of the EGR to exhaust manifold tube . Also plug or otherwise block coolant hose that leads to y adapter or leave the barb fitting in and run heater hose to the y adapter. You could later do the passenger side work which is blocking off the exhaust manifold end of the same tube you would block on driver side if you chose to do it this way and either replace the y adapter or don't at that point . To clarify ,you can remove the barb fitting and plug block at same time if you plug the coolant hose to the y adapter.

Remember, you may also want to allow some time for RTV to cure before actually driving to operating temp

I didn't see geordi s post about taking it all out together without undoing FCV to EGR pipe but I would have tried to do it that way to save more time. Difference is, I like to see whats going on especially the first time so i removed battery undid power distribution removed alternator removed fuel filter assemblies a must since i have 2 micron filter in that area also. This helped me tremendously, pictures can only do so much. I also needed to change glow plugs and the weeks kit makes access to them if needed again a very easy job. BTW once FCV off you can change all 4 glow plugs in about 15 minutes.

One last possibly helpful hint, If you deform the clamp on the exhaust manifold installing part II of weeks kit the clamp on the FCV to EGR tube IIRC correctly is the same size so it could replace a deformed clamp on part 2 and it is much easier to get off without damage.

I have one more weeks kit to do soon , I am going to try it geordi s way to remove all in one piece. I believe it will save me about 20 minutes .
