I cant afford a bb of any brand yet so this is the direction im headed. The ats shroud should be hear this after noon. I plan on deleting the ebpv while im in their. the other thing is how do I adjust the wast gate acuator to make about 5 more lbs? or is it worth it on a stock unit? I have itp's overboost anhilator. right now I hit 22lbs.

Well seeing as you have an 02 you will have to cut about a 1/2" off of the waste gate rod, The ATS housing should come with instructions to do that. When I reinstalled the waste gate I screwed the end piece dohingy just enough to where I had to pull against the actuator spring about a 1/4" to re-hook it, sort of like preloading it. Its also insurance to use thread locker on the actuator rod threads.

yeah ive heard that its a littel frustrating on getting it back together. Ive got a tap and die set So im sure I can clean it up nice. if thats the end you cut. just looked under the turbo and noticed its covered in oil. So I think I will need to replace the orings as well. so sounds like it will be coming out of the truck. I think I found what has been making me think i had a rear main seal leak.

just got done with the install. I decided not to delete the ebpv. Didnt look like it blocked that much when it was open. but I learned a valueable leason, unless you read about hear it may not be right. I read on the ford truck fourm that if you leave the plug off the ebpv it would stay open and be fine. Well not so much. mine stayed closed and in the econo tune made more smoke than steam coal train. boy did it suck getting that plug back on with everything back on the motor.

after adjusting the waste gate actuator I can hit 25 lbs with the 80 econo tune. Just curious what you guys seamed to think about that? good or bad.
