Evil Eye's swap MTW Stage 1 Billet Compressor Wheel

I've pulled the 6.0L turbo a few times before so I won't bore you with those details. It went OK, well except that damn BACK BOLT!!! Oh and the fact that I began working on a hot engine, which isn't a good idea. For those that don't know it, the turbo stays hot for a LONG time, so putting bare skin on it probably isn't a good idea... unless you like getting branded.

BTW, I used Bryan's thread details in order to swap out the wheel. Thanks buddy! LINK

Turbo pulled and new wheel installed.


Another slightly tilted view. Think of it like a fashion show.


Cover back on and ready to go back in the truck


Y-pipe connection. If it isn't this tight when it goes back together, you will very likely have leaks. This is the MOST common area to experience a leak because it's hard to get to AND the turbo is heavy so it may require some negotiation to get it where you need it. I used a pry bar to gently encourage the turbo back into it's spot. Also be aware that you have to align it so that it drops onto the turbo drain without damaging the silicone o-ring.


Another view so you can see that it's already a tight connection. The clamp will NOT pull the two connections together so get it tight BEFORE putting the clamp on.


This is the downpipe side. You can adjust this side MUCH easier, so I left a little bit of gap on this side in order to get the y-pipe aligned.


There she is... Just BEGGING me to give it to her...


Downpipe clamp installed and tight


Y-pipe clamp installed and tight



Just for Bryan. I HATE the factory turbo hold down bolts and for good reason. They strip out and that's NEVER going to happen again thanks to these bad boys.







Test start and no leaks.


On the test drive, I realized that my downpipe shifted a bit and ended up touching the pinch weld on the cab. This caused quite a bit of noise inside the cab but is easy to fix. I use a 2x4 to to keep the downpipe away from the cab while I'm cranking down the lower clamp. If you don't it has a tendency to move around a bit. After torquing down the clamp, just pull out the 2x4 block.

Ran great up until the downpipe touched the pinch weld and added a horrible drone inside the cab. I will get that fixed this morning after my coffee.

Still too early to tell since I didn't have anything to cause it to surge, so won't know until later today.

Video??? I need a cameraman (or woman)...

PS. LOTS of pics of the titanium bolts for Bryan... Especially that back one. At least now they will come out easy and no worry about stripping them out.

***On Edit: I paid $33 and not $38 like I was thinking and updated my post***

I got them from BPD, who else? They got the idea after I rounded off the prior set of turbo bolts trying to pull my PowerMax to install the MTW Stage 1. I have to say that they are kind of pricey. I think I paid like $33 for the 3 bolts, BUT you can definitely tell the difference in quality. They threaded in SO much easier and only needed a wrench for the last half turn.

BTW, I just got the downpipe adjusted and left a little bit more blood on the turbo housing. That's what I get for being lazy and trying to balance on the front tire instead of pulling out my front step. Sliced my finger on the upper heat shield when I slipped off the front tire. Just a flesh wound, though...
