Doing a few mods this weekend

This weekend I will be doing the following to my '02:
  • Gutting the EBPV, installing non-complex pedestal, and installing a Turbonetics high flow outlet (my pedestal o-rings or EBPV rod are leaking oil).
  • Installing RiffRaff FRx
  • Installing RiffRaff HPx

Any tips or tricks on these installs? I've done some research and it looks like the best things to do are clean the area with Simple Green, soak everything with PB Blaster, be patient, and say a few curse words if it comes down to it.

My plan is to remove all the turbo related stuff, install the HPx and FRx, then reinstall the new turbo stuff.

Thanks.

All fairly easy to do. It will be nice to install the FRx and HPx while the turbo is out.

Sounds like you have a good plan.

Thanks!

I apparently can't just say "Thanks!" because it's too short of a statement...

Alright, finished the install and everything seems to be fine.
I am seeing more smoke on acceleration; not a lot, just more than I used to.
Is this normal with the mods I installed?
I used the gold spring on the FRx.

There shouldn't really be more smoke. You didn't modify anything to create more smoke.

Maybe because you bumped up your fuel pressure? I do not think this will cause more smoke though.

Yea, I think I'm going to have to go to a shop and hook a fuel pressure gauge to make sure I'm not getting too much pressure. But like I said, it's running fine.

If you didn't tighten a boot correctly and have a boost leak, that can cause more smoke out the pipe.
