A few weeks ago, had my truck in Ford shop getting studded, H.G., Y-Pipes, R.R. Fuel system, BPD water pump and 7.3 fan clutch installed.
As I was waiting for day to take to shop, I got to digging around and found my turbo inlet duct has disintegrated at the turbo and needed replacing and that comp. wheel was not in good shape.
I called Charlie at KC and we talked about which turbo I had and a wheel was sent. I had had the turbo replaced 3.5 years ago when a seal went bad, was under warranty so I thought that was a alright deal. In looking at the turbo part # and doing some searches on-line it looked to be an 05-07 turbo according to part numbers.
When tech did the parts install, he noted on the invoice that the wheel looked smaller than the stock on taken out, but he installed it anyway!!
Well, I'd been having issues with a couple tunes being very boggey off the bottom and one of them shooting egts
right up to 1400 before I'd let off for fear of hurting my pistons. After a couple conversations, that may be normal with some of these full fuel tunes.
I had the turbo inlet off again this week, rerouting the CCV
hose to my framerail and looked at the wheel again, looks like I need to address this,
talked to Charlie again, may just go with a Stage 1.5 if I have to pull the turbo anyway, is doesn't really run bad, is laggey from a stop but my boost psi
is good and mid-range and top end is fine.
Sorry this is long-winded.
