Finally decided it was time to install the TN today. Took far longer than I had planned, but such is life. Spent a great deal of time on the exhaust/up-pipe clamp. Part of the flange decided to weld itself to the clamp, and I had to break the clamp off to get it off. Took part of the up-pipe flange with it, but finally freed itself. After a trip to Ford for a new clamp, I was ready to roll. Looking back now, I forgot to put the o-ring from the stock turbo compressor into the TN
, so tomorrow I'll go back and put it in, and check for any boost leaks. Turbo is rather laggy under 2k (6 speed), but spools up nicely once lit. Seeing around 25 psi
right now, so I know I have a leak or 2. Deleted the EBPV
, and added a non-ebpv pedestal while I was at it. Up-pipes had no leaks, so I left them for a rainy day. Plan on Regulated Fuel next, so I'll probably pull the turbo again, and will probably do uppies then. Also added Dieselsite boots, and need to re-adjust the intercooler boots to get them farther on, didn't know if they were suppose to go on ridged part of the intercooler or not, so they are a bit kinked right now, so tomorrow I'll re-adjust...
