a few up-pipe donut questions.......
im planning on buying the chevy manifold donuts and installing them tomorrow.this is mainly a temporary fix because i cant afford a better fix at this point.im wondering if i can pull the pedistol and turbo off as one assembly and avoid changing the orings.if i cant do that is it possible to buy a standard oring kit from the local auto store and get by with that? im hoping this will solve my exhaust leaks,when im on the highway i can let off the gas and hear a chchchchchchchc sound,like an exhaust leak.my boost also seems a bit slow to respond.when i stomp it in 5th gear doing 70,it will hit 10psi then slowly creep to around 15-17psi.also at lower rpms when i stand on the pedal it seems to choke or stumble on the black smoke until the turbo spools up,which is why i think my donuts are fried.let me know what you guys think,thanks>>>>>>>>brian
