I converted my truck from an E99 to a 99.5+ with the intent to run a GTP38R. I had some of my daughters college bills given to me as an early christmas present... so the 38R is on hold for a month I'll run a stock turbo until then.
My truck is Long cranking, and not starting when it's hot... I attribute that to the HPOP
change, and it should work itself out within a couple hundred miles. When I drove it the truck built enough boost to blow an IC
boot off, it was left a bit loose, I'm showing 18lbs or so on the guage... but it feels like there are rags stuffed in the intake, alot of noise but it never pulls.
I have a van turbo sitting on the shelf, but before I swap turbos I wanted to give you guys the details and see if I could be missing something else.
In addition to the E99 to 99.5 conversion, I also did the following:
1. Installed Airdog 2
2. RR - 1/2" feed line to Y block, then 3/8" dist. to heads, returned thru Fuelabs regulator set at 65psi
3. Modded 17* HPOP
installed, new IPR
4. Bellowed up-pipes installed, stock gtp38 turbo for now
5. XLE4 PCM
, shopping for PMT 1/2 now, PHP chip removed- will be sent for reflash when new PCM
and 38R are installed.
I don't know if Im too close to the project to see the problem, any suggestions?
