Red face Gotta Love That "Christmassy" Feeling.... Parts Incoming!

Well, I officially have all my parts coming in for my Pedestal O-ring replacement job!

  • Turbo Re-Install O-Ring kit from Guzzle. $26.45 (w/compressor gasket)
  • Wicked Wheel from XDP. ($77.50)
  • Non-EBV Pedestal. ($75 Ebay)
  • Turbo Master (Dieselsite $160)
  • Fumoto Drain Valve (Dieselsite $27)
  • AIH Delete Plug (Dieselsite $8)
Not sure If I want to buy the EBV delete plug for $50 or make one... I found a thread about using a resistor to make your own delete plug and may just try that.... at least see if it actually works using AE. If not.... I'll probably buy the plug then.

Guzzles Price of $20 for the turbo reinstall kit beats the hell out of Ford's price... of $86.

Am I missing anything? Anything else to do while the turbo is out?

It's 2am as I type this and I'm tired.... hopefully I have thought of everything.

Soon as I get the leak stopped and the engine/compartment cleaned up, (LOTS OF DE-GREASER!) I plan to get the tools out and clean up the oil pan, sand it all down and paint it up real nice. Hopefully this will get rid of my oil leak and be the end of unwanted corrosion on my oil pan!

Night Folks!

Now I have to ask..... But being in Maine don't you think you'll be needing the EBV and AIH?

My rig takes long enough to warm up with all the said components working. I can't imagine without them.

Now, just a little jealous about the WW. I've been wanting to get one for months now and am having trouble saving up the money. Would you entertain shooting a quick video of before and after the WW installation to see the difference in sound?

AIH doesn't do anything unless it is sitting and idling A LOT in very cold weather. Now I do let it idle a bit on a cold start, but not for long, (usually less that 10 min, again only when VERY cold.) The EBV may help a bit, but I found that using the block heater is really the only thing that makes a difference, and when cold-starting the EBV really just made noise...didn't seem to warm up until I got a couple miles down the road.

They DO however leak, and cause all sorts of extra noise.... so I figure frig it. The AIH it totally useless, IMHO unless you idle all day.

And I will definitely do a pics and video.... prolly wont be for another week or so.... maybe wens/thurs if all the parts are here in time. The Pedestal just arrived.

That they do. My truck is straight piped and it will down right make your ears hurt when the EBV is active. In fact I had a couple different people ask me what was wrong with my truck last winter. I'll be curious to see how you do next winter since we're similar in climates. It wouldn't hurt my feelings one bit to take it out.

I'll definately report back.

I'm only really worried about the extended work days in sub-freezing weather.... where the truck sits outside for 15-20 hours and nowhere to plug in.... so we'll see. At home it's plugged in when cold so no worries.

The biggest thing I hated about it was when I had to go somewhere and drive with the EBV engaged.... makes the (cold) engine work that much harder... I'm sure it aint good for it, I figure it's better to not have it and not work the engine as hard when cold. I take it easy when its cold, and don't usually crank the chip on till I see the oil temp gauge up to the lowest mark or higher.

Extended noisy EBV idling is just friggin obnoxious.
