I found my gigantic "up-pipe leak"
I've been hearing a pfft, pfft, pfft sound when I get on it hard, exhaust is loud under the hood, firewall, sounds like an 80's ford van with bad manifold leaks right....
Boost is way down, egt's way up.
Well tonight I put it in my hottest program and pop the hood to see if I see anything when I rev it. Sure enough I see it blowing smoke underneath the hood.
So I have Dad rev it while I watch and it's squirting a cloud STRAIGHT UP, at the front of the engine.
Dead center in front of the timing cover. So I'm like WTF....
I have him do it a couple more times and I get up and look.
Low and freekin behold my EBP
sensor tube is COMPLETELY loose and just sitting there.
It was blowing soot like a little mini stack LMFAO.
Tighened her back up finger tight at the gas station. (blistered my fingers without realizing it...
On the way home all is well. Boost is back up to 27-28lbs (where it was before) and truck runs way better. EGT's barely climbed to 1250 in my extreme program on a WOT
run from 50-90.
Oh, did a nice little donut for Dad in the 4 lane when we turned around. (no cars, deserted road, wyoming we're talkin here dude...)
Anyway, this is bad for 2 reason. 1 it means I'm a tard, and 2 I have no excuse to upgrade to new set of those fancy bellowed up pipes
Oh well, lesser luck next time
