Help in Minneapolis

Well I was gonna put in my ats housing and turbomaster wastegate to day, but i got in there and no way was I gonna get it, maybe the housing but not the wastegate. I am no way capable of taking the turbo off. Anyone within an hour or so of minneapolis that could help me out, I can pay ya if ya want. Thanks

Re: Help in Minneapolis

It really isn't that tough if you've got the right tools. After yo've done it once or twice it's actually quite simple. Just take your time.

The hardest part is the clamp on the rear of the turbo.

Re: Help in Minneapolis

I would pull the turbo if you can, might be easier for you. Where are you in Mpls?

Re: Help in Minneapolis

I would help if possible but I am a little too far away. Like said earlier the hardest part is the clap on the back of the turbo. I used a long (really long) screw driver to tap it off from under the truck. If you need any help feel free to pm me I will get back to you faster.

Re: Help in Minneapolis

I think I got it figured out, looked at it a little better and took a breath. Gonna do it tomorrow now. genuineford, what clamp are you talking about on the back of the turbo, the c-clip on the wastegate? Im also putting on a turbomaster wastegate, should be a nice combo, at least for the stock POS turbo.

Re: Help in Minneapolis

Try reading through these and see if they help you out. There really isn't a lot to removing the turbo, just takes a little time. After you do it a few times theres nothing to it, I can have mine off in less than 30 minutes.

Those are the instructions for installing a GT-38R turbo, but it will be the same for your stocker

Re: Help in Minneapolis

when you put on the turbo master wastegate make sure you get the arm on the wastegate on the right way, the directions are not very clear or I just don't read well. your know if it is wrong because the rod from the controller will bind.

Re: Help in Minneapolis

If you are pulling the turbo off it is the V-band clamp that connects the up pipes to the turbo.

ON edit: I have a picture with the turbo off.


You can browse through those pictures. They are from when I had mine off and installed a WW. Don't mind the messy garage it is my dads. The clamp I am talking about is the one that goes on the collector from the up pipes. It is to the right of my down pipe.
