This is the sledscreamer 71/17 H2E. What a pain it was to get the old stainless exhaust off (only put on 2 months ago!) I had to cut it with a torch. Anyway, install went OK. Everything came off within 45min to 1 hr excluding the exhaust (took another 45-1 hr). The pedastal was a little bit of a pain, i had to bend the fuel line going to the back of the passenger side head. Up pipes were EASY. I was very surprised how easy it was. No more exhaust smell out side of the truck! (carquest 3$ gaskets). Turbo bolts were easy except 1, which was the top right bolt when looking at the front of the truck. I could not get any wrench or socket in there, so it is only finger tight. All the other ones are TIGHT. i made sure of that. CAC
tubes were a snug fit, had to really push to get them on.
On to the fun part:
On the the first test drive the SES
light was on, and i forgot to plug in the map
Second test drive all was well except now i'm setting my P1211
code in my 100 hp tune
but a new IPR
is on the way, as this one has never been cleaned/changed since 2000. Hopefully that will help some. Turbo lights around 1850-1900 RPM in my 80 tune (does that seems right?) with stock injectors and builds boost quickly after that. Peak is in the high twentys low thirty range, but i didnt stay in it for that long, as i was trying to watch for the LEOs.
To make a long story short, very happy with the turbo, sounds ALOT better than the stocker, lag isnt awful, but noticeable difference from stock with .84 housing (obviously). Everything took about 5-6 hours to install (all because of that damn exhaust).
, anyone need a good stock turbo + everything else turbo related from 2000 truck
