turbo cleaning SPECIFICS

I know there's been a million threads about this but I can't find one that's very clear on what to use for cleaning. Some guys say purple power, others say just scrubbing. What should I not get wet and what is ok to get wet? Can I soak any of the parts in anything? Do I need a new hardware kit for when I put it back together? answers to these would be appreciated.

Pull the VGT solenoid, set it aside and don't get it wet. Everything else requires some scrubbing. Unless it is a horrible, oily mess, I would just use a scotch-brite pad to clean it up. If it is all oily, use some simple green and/or greased lightning to get rid of the oil, let it dry and THEN use the scotch-brite pad.

Yes, you should use a turbo install kit (About $7) from any Ford parts place when you reinstall.

Thanks man. I called ford and the guy said there's no such thing as a turbo reinstall kit. He said that I would have to order all the hardware individually?

He sounds like a moron or is just too lazy to look it up... If I didn't know something, I would at least let you know I didn't know and ask someone who does.

I'll see if I can find the part number that you need to get and post it up for you.

On Edit: Here's a link to some very helpful information including the turbo cleaning kit part number and procedure. I have copied the part numbers from the linked post.

3C3Z-9T514-AD to get the turbo mounting hardware

Turbo Reconditioning Kit is 4C4Z-9V424-AA

off topic, but if my turbo is indeed sooted up will my mpg's suffer a noticeable amount? My mileage has been going down and down. And everything else on the truck is good

It might, if the air isn't there to make good ignition
