It starts this Saturday!

Well my wife wants to see results before the snow is over and time to pull the toy hauler out of the shed. This weekend starts the long process of upgrades. So the list includes:

- Turbine housing install
- MRBP turbo back exhaust install
- Intercooler install
- Install gauges
- Repair exhaust brake hoses
- Repair shift boot
- Custom center console & stereo/amp/speaker install
- Class V receiver install
- Aux rear back up lights
- Window tint
- Tonneau cover install
- Custom exterior mirrors

Then finish up maintenance and little bit of body work. Then after that, finish the mods to RV.... will post pics along the way....just hope I survive....lol

Re: It starts this Saturday!

Just have to decide to either use the EGT probe ports on the exhaust brake or drill/tap pre-turbo. I know it can be about 100-200 F difference in temps, but don't know if it is worth the trouble.

Re: It starts this Saturday!

i would definatly put it in the manifold... its not always 200 difference, i have seen trucks with pre and post turbo and when your on it the difference can be over 600 kinda scary.... its well worth the time to put it pre turbo

Re: It starts this Saturday!

Well the difference is the energy(thermal) going into the turbine wheel to spin up the turbo. I was thinking about drilling and tapping the turbo manifold/collector where the turbine housing mounts. I have an extra one that I could utilize...

If you have to pick one... put it in the manifold.

Re: It starts this Saturday!

the pic above was from my buddy cody's truck. LoL. i was with him when that pic was taken and i will say that pre/post turbo EGTs vary greatly! one second they could be within 200* of each other then the next thing you no your driving down the road and there is a 500* difference. i'd go pre turbo always, but y'all know that Gale likes them post turbo....

Re: It starts this Saturday!

Well first day the truck is victorious. I have decided against doing the IC retrofit. It appears that how I would have to run the IC tubes is just more than I really want to do. I don't really want to hack through everything to fit the 3" tubes. Also the 1999 spider I bought doesn't fit because of the fuel bowl. The pressure nipples hit the fuel filter housing. So the whole thing is going up for sale.... In addition, I have not seen a turbo like this. The bolts that mount it to the pedestal are from underneath. Not to mention that I cannot get a wrench on the lower T4 flange bolts or the back two pedestal to block bolts! I have no friggin clue how to get the turbo off....so my 1.0 A/R housing is going to have to wait. While I was in there I found two problems. I have a bad oil leak coming from either the fuel pump "O" ring (look like a new fuel pump), or most likely from the EBV actuator from what I can tell... Also, I took the intake "y" off and found it has been missing a great big chunk of the discharge "o" ring...no wonder it was lousy to boost. I did get most of the stock exhaust and all the downpipe out of it though. Will continue to work at it, but if anyone has suggestions for the leak and how to get this friggin turbo off, let me know!
