free mods walkthrough

Hey gents I would like to try disconnecting the red wire on my waste gate but I have no idea where it is and how to actually perform the mod. I'm also goin to adjust my actuater but I do know how to that. Id also like a better understanding of the ccv mod. If someone could post step by step pics of both the red wire mod and ccv mod id greatly appreciate it. Also if you would tell me other cheap mods I can do.

Re: free mods walkthrough

the red hose on the wastegate is mounted on the turbo in the top rear its visible from the front of the truck u simply pull it off the wastegate ( the round clyinder mounted to the turbo with the rod coming out the back) and hook the line to the intercooler hose clamp

Re: free mods walkthrough

Do you have a pic by chance? Is the hose clamp just to hold it or does it have more purpose than that

Re: free mods walkthrough

have you ever looked under the hood of your truck? the hose that goes to the wastegate actuator is red, like a stop sign, disconnect the hose from the wastegate actuator. well now that you have it disconnected you have a vacuum leak so you press the end of the hose, the black 90 degree piece on the stud that sticks up from your boot clamp.

Re: free mods walkthrough

You can leave it open, it won't hurt anything....just plug the hose side. BTW, unless you have a programmer or high performance chip you're not going to really see that turbo get high enough to do any real damage to the turbo...in fact even with a chip you'd probably need to have new injectors to get any boost higher than about 26 lbs, maybe.
