to those of you who have cleaned your vgt turbos i have a question.

I did a egr delete the other day and I figured I would clean the turbo while I had it out, I followed the instructions I got with the kit from international and applied anti sieze to both sides of the unison ring the center housing and the flat part of the turbine housing as instructed... Was this the wrong thing to do? The truck sounds a lot more deep toned than it used to, but the vgt is working because when I start the truck you can hear it engage and start hissing like normal but still has a deeper tone. My egts are good and maybe a little lower than before the cleaning and egr delete so I don't think I messed up by using the anti sieze, I'm just worried about it starting to stick or something. And also when the trucks cold there is a small fluctuation in boost but it goes away right off the bat so maybe I just need a little time to get maybe some excess anti sieze burt out of it? I only used a light coat but maybe not light enough. Someone please chime in. Thanks

I'm not a fan of using anti seize when cleaning a turbo, but a light coat shouldn't hurt anything. Might mean you'll have to take it apart again sooner but might work out just fine too. It just gives the soot something else to stick to IMHO. All you really need to do is clean everything up good and put it back together. I have used a small shot of graphite compound spray on the variable vanes before reinstalling the cover, but that's about it. That stuff just burns off quick.

Honestly I think the majority of it will burn out, I drove it last night after work (cold start) and it seemed normal. That anti sieze I don't think will stick to them metal surfaces foreverit dries up and flakes away and turns into a dust at least that's what it does on threaded fasteners under hight heat....
