    I need some input on where to relocate the PMD/FSD. I've seen several kits and discussions online that moves it to the top of the intake, side of the intake, firewall, behind the front bumper, and even one that is located on or near the front skid plate.

    My thoughts are to try and mount it where a heat sink would have the greatest air flow and still have it protected, namely some where in or on the air filter housing or passages. Or should I just go with one of the kits? Any thoughts or comments would be helpful.

    This may be a dumb question but what does PMD/FSD mean? I am not familiar with those abreviations.

    PMD = Power Mounted Driver
    FSD = Fuel Solenoid Driver

    It basically two abbrevations/terms describing the same electronic module that is mounted on the side of the diesel injection pump.

    Ah, that is why I didn't recognize them. This is a diesel tech question. I can offer you no help on this matter unfortunately. I don't really know squat about diesels.

    AFAIK the kits do a fine job, so no sense reinventing the wheel IMO.
