Couple Turbo install question

H2E install:

Did you guys find it easier to install the up pipes with the pedastal on them already? Or install the up pipes separate from the pedastal? Will it even fit in there with them bolted together? This is with the trans in. As for the drain line, does it just sit in that hole of the pedastal drain? Just put some sealer around it i assume?

CCV Mod:

Are all of you guys running a catch can or can i just put a dump tube running from the dog house?

Thanks for the help in advance

Re: Couple Turbo install question

I put on the pepestal then put in the up pipes from underneath. The return line hole should have a machined groove that has an O ring in it that seals the drain pipe when installed. I also used a little Super gray permatex.


I run two catch cans in line then back into the intake. I used the hole that filter minder was in. I enlarged it and used a 3/4" barbed fitting that has the barbs machined off. And used a PCV valve O ring to seal it to the intake.

Re: Couple Turbo install question

As far as that O ring goes, i dont remember seeing one in the return hole on the pedastal, nor a machined grove. Do you know what size O ring it is off hand? Also where did you pick up those catch cans? Would it make a real mess if i just vented to atmosphere with no catch can?

No it will be just fine. I have mine running from the valvecover straight down. About 4 feet of hose total and I don't get any mess.

Re: Couple Turbo install question

Is the dog house fitting for 5/8 or 3/4 hose?

I always wondered why all the enginnering of a catch can setup was needed...my CTD just had a hose hanging down the side of the engine and caused no grief?

Its 3/4 inch, and just run it under the truck w/o a catch can. Mine ends right by the fuel tank. No problems.

Re: Couple Turbo install question

hey howard did you get the fancy afe to h2e pip?

and as far as the ccv mod, i once read , or thought i read that you have to be carefull about where you run the hose , the size and such,
as it could lead to higher crank case pressures,

is there any meat to this or am I just a meat head.

Re: Couple Turbo install question

I got the intake pipe from Dennis at ITP. I tried making one with parts I had and it only pissed me off when I was done because it looked like crap.

I don't like the smell of the CCV or the smoke coming from under the truck like a draft tube. I only like smoke coming from tires and exhaust..........
