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
