Aih< Ccv< Epbv

Well waiting on my turbo today, I got bored, and decided to add a couple more cheap mods. So went ahead and did the Fuel Shim, AIH delete, routed the CCV back next to gas tank with filter, and gutted the EBPV. I will swap over the housing when the new turbo gets here. Man I can't wait!! Thanks for all the help and info from this site and these members!! You guys are awesome!! Now I just need that big brown truck to show up!!

when you gutted the ebpv, what did you seal the lower hole with? just wandering because I used a brass freeze plug like the top hole, but it melted and blew out, I think the top plug is steel, now I will tap it and put a pipe plug in.

Formula, I'd use something that can withstand ALOT of heat.

Keifer... sounds good man - I bet there's a lot of room once you have the turbo and pipes out! LOL

I'll be doing the fuel drain mod and maybe another cheap mod this weekend - depends on the weather since I'm not down in SUNNY FREAKIN FLORIDA LOL!!!!

I got to enjoy the weather now Maintain. Moving to MAINE in 3 weeks! So better get stuff done now. I used a brass freeze plug. Hope it don't melt! LOL If so, oh well, I have become a pro at taking off the turbo. Not too bad actually! Also did the fuel shim too, and got the new turbo in yesterday. Pulling max of 29 PSI of boost. A little surge though, so now I need to get another WW.

Be prepared, that brass plug will melt and blow out, mine lasted until I pulled my boat, it's about 14,000 pound's, I was able to fix it by removing the down pipe and un bolting the ebpv housing off the turbo, the c-clip was still their but no sine of the brass freez plug, I tapped it with a 1/2" pipe tap and put in a steel plug, it was not any fun, considering I should have done it that way to begin with, the top plug appears to be stainless steel, so I left it alone, good luck with it!

Great. Figures. Should have got a steel one instead. Hopefully it lasts a while. Don't feel like tearing it apart again anytime soon. But shouldn't be too bad taking off the exhaust and unbolting the housing off the turbo. Thanks for the heads up.
