Turbo & pedestal rebuild kits

Hi All!

I've got a 2000 E-450 with a leaky pedestal actuator. Since I'll have to pull the turbo I might as well rebuild both while I'm at it.

Can anyone recommend a good rebuild kit? I don't mind paying a bit more for quality parts.

Thanx - Roach

Carries everything from ADP Distributers. The largest turbocharger distribution company in North America.

I bought the pedestal with the ebpv delete rather than rebuilding it. Never have to worry about it leaking again. And they are Cheap.

Doing the ebpv delete would certainly be cheaper, but I'm in Michigan and wondering whether the longer engine warm up would be a problem.

Im in Penticton B.C. Canada. We definitely get winter up here. Although fairly mind to some.
This winter we had -13F and months of below 32F weather. My truck fires up fine. no fuel heater, no warm up valve, no air intake heater. Its a little grumpy on first flash up not plugged in but not to bad at all. May notice a bit for warm up time. Winter front maybe. Who am i kidding I used trusty old card board!!

Way better than my cummins with no heater grid!!! What a Pig

i agree i just put one on my 02 f250 and i cant say anything about the cold starts due to the weather but it did free up some lost power and give the exhaust a much louder deeper sound when you get it off there is a clear visible difference in how restrictive the ebpv is.

Thanx for the info guys. The turbo rebuild kit is on it's way and I'll be gutting and plugging the pedestal. Never had a diesel before so this should be interesting. One nice bit is that once you pull the engine cover on the E-vans the turbo is *right there* and easy to work on. Getting at the other parts is like medieval torture, but at least I get a break on this fix.

I thought the same thing last week was the first time I had torn that deep into a diesel but if your savy with a wrench then you won't have a hard time. The toughest part is removing the clamp on the turbine inlet because it's so close to the firewall.

Well, you know the old saying:

EXPERIENCE GAINED IS DIRECTLY PROPORTIONAL TO EQUIPMENT RUINED.

I've done my share of ruining.

This is one time that the van guys have an advantage over the pickup guys. With the engine cover off I can work on the turbo in relative comfort.

Anyone know what that black plastic thing is above the down pipe?
