My ebpv has been acting up so I did some research and found that it is popular to remove it from the pedistal. I pull the turbo out and gut the pedistal and removed the butterfly out of the exhaust port. As I pull the turbo out, I noticed a ton of soot all over my passenger side up pipe, firewall, and down pipe. I talk to a buddy of mine who is also a member of the ORG and he instructed me on how to change the up pipe donuts. So this morning I went and got the oem donuts from ford. As I got started on taking the adapter flange off where the up pipes connect, the first bolt snapped, the second bolt snapped, the third one came out, and the last one snapped. This motor is a reman with less than 50k. the up pipes look like new. What the heck??? So, I had to order a new flange from Ford at the tune of 105 bucks with my buddies discount. what sucks is I spent hours trying to drill out the broken bolts but when I was tapping them, I accidentally broke the tap off in the last hole and couldn't get it out no matter what. I lost my cool and destroyed the flange. Oh well, hopefully those up pipes stay sealed for a couple years.
