A few questions?
First off- I just picked up a stock turbo with supposedly 30,000-40,000 miles on it with no side to side play in the shaft for 150$ did I get a good deal? The reason that I went with that was due to the fact that I am going to spend my tax returns on stage one sticks, so I will put in the injectors and a fresh turbo and should be all set there. That is where my question lies, would it be more advantages to get the parts around for E-Fuel or try and get the parts around for and Inter-cooler? Will I need to upgrade my HPOP to be sure I do not harm the new Injectors.
Secondly- currently when I drive around I don't create much boost unless I am really on the pedal is this normal? I road in my buddies Cummins and he was making boost all the time. Could this have to do with my stock turbo being at 217,xxx miles?
Is there anything I can do or should do to the stock turbo to make it more efficient before it goes on the truck? I do have access to a machine shop if that helps out.
Also would soldering in the IDM mod help me out at all? I read on the write up that some claim it gained them 30hp? But now for the life of me I cant find that exact write up.
Thanks for reading and the input.
