slightly better flow if you gut it, and you loose the ebpv if you do as well, warm up takes slightly longer tho, but not a huge deal, and if you go to a 1.00 exhaust housing it will spool faster but have slightly higher egt's

The biggest reason we gut or install a blank pedestal is to get rid of a huge potential oil leak. The extra plus is ever so slightly lower EGT's from removing the ebpv that is a slight exhaust restriction. I saw absolutely no difference in EGT's from installing my 1.0 turbo housing and sure like the faster turbo spooling.

Ok so if I gut the pedestal and add the 1.00 housing then the egt's should stay about the same. It's all stock rite now. Has 230k its a 5spd. Any other mods besides 3" dp and intake/exhaust?

I would say that IF the egt's change it would be slightly. I did see increased performance with the 140v idm mod. You should get egt/boost gauges before doing any mods. Absolutely do the intake such as the 6637 and 3" downpipe. You should also think of some kind of chip whether it is a superchip like I'm using for now or a multi position chip to get the most from your engine. I have seen the blank pedestals for as low as $140. If you are going to do all the work of pulling the turbo to change the pedestal and or the exhaust housing I would consider having the turbo rebuilt. Guess I should add there are lots of mods you can do, it's all in how much horsepower you want and how much money you want to throw at it. Things like bigger turbo's, bigger injectors, water/meth injection, propane injection, intercooler, the list goes on and on.

Here is just a couple links for chips, there are several Diesel tuning products for Ford PowerStroke http://www.swampsdiesel.com/xtcommer...---Tuners.html

Gauges are not hard to put in, hardest part is drilling and tapping a exhaust manifold to install the egt probe.

hell there is a hole just left of the brake booster, has a black oval ish plastic plug covering it, it pops out and easy to run stuff through, just make sure you run the probe first, kause the egt probe wont fit with all the wires in the way, hardest part is making it look nice and getting it to where you want it on the a pillar,
