Drilling for the Pyro.

I am looking into a set of gauges and was wondering how amny of you are ok with drilling the hole for the pyro with the manifold on the truck...????

I am nervous about the shavings getting into the turbo...or having to remove the manifold.

It's not a problem. Go slow and use a magnet to get any pieces. Since it's in the exhaust side, no real damage will be done.

Do it from the underside of the manifold so most shavings fall out of the whole and on the ground rather that in the pipe. and also use a magnet to pick up any other shavings. and the left over shavings if any wont hurt the turbo.

i was nervous, but i took my time, started with a small bit and worked my way up, then went slow with the tap also... a magnet and a vaccuum will do the trick on the cleanup! god luck!

i have used grease on the drill bit, along with magnets. it will catch a lot of the shavings.

I didn't even worry about it. Once you start it up it will blow by the turbine before it's even spinning. At idle speed the thing isn't spinning fast enough, and the exhaust pressure isn't high enough to cause it to hit with any real force. All the shavings or filings will be past the turbo in an instant.

I read this thread title and my mind went for the gutter!!! We usually call it something different out here in Arizona! LMAO.

PS. Some good advice from these guys. I wouldn't trust them not to derail your thread, though!

x2 on this method. The vaccum is key I think. I used the method mentioned above and didn't use grease since it was suggested to me that anything caught in the manifold in the grease wouldn't come out with a magnet or vaccum. No problems here. In fact, when I changed out my turbo the turbine wheel looked perfect.
