Gotta Pull the Turbo

So I've got to pull the turbo to fix either a pedestal or EBPV rod oil leak.
While I've got it out I'm going to go ahead and gut the EBPV, install a 5" DiamonEye exhaust, and install the RiffRaff FRx.

Is there anything else I should do while I have the turbo off?

Subscribed. I am going to do the same thing soon for a similar leak.

I really wish I had the money to do headers and new up pipes too!

make sure your up pipes aren't leaking, probably wouldn't hurt to clean your ic boots or replace them, ccv mod if your into that and the 6637 mod other than that i got nothing

ya what the op said.
i would definitely check up-pipes and see if they are leaking since
you already have everything off anyway
and p.s. don't be a dumby like me and over tighten the pedestal.
turbos like to have oil lol it only takes 18 ft pounds if remember

If you're pulling the turbo... either do the EBPV delete or buy the non-EBPV exhaust housing for the turbo. No point in pulling it to fix something that's going to leak again....

Yep, my shopping cart contains:
- Non Complex pedestal (and all o-rings etc)
- Non EBPV exhaust outlet (and all new hardware etc.)
- RiffRaff FRx
- 5" Diamond Eye exhaust kit


How will I know/check if my up pipes are leaking?

Is the CCV mod worth it? I have been looking into it

Usually there will be black soot on the firewall on the shiny aluminum insulation.

No point in doing headers on a diesel.

If u don't have bellowed up pipes ready to install, get the FELPRO 8194 gaskets, and install them, when pulling the turbo.
