Well, the orings on the pedestal had popped a few weeks ago which started all this. I decided that I didn't want to pull off and upgrade a turbo with 200k+ miles especially since it was already singing a little while towing.
Once I had the old turbo off , I noticed how accessible everything was. I knew I would eventually do a regulated return and it will be much easier with the turbo off. So I did that as well. I upgraded the fuel system with pre and post pump spin-on filters a few months back so I figured why not do the fuel bowl delete as well. The drain had a tendency to seep fuel anyway and the water in fuel sensor didn't work.
I had some 4" stainless left over from the Magnaflow system so I used that on the CCV delete. I picked up a catch can from Smileys and used it instead of dropping a hose under the truck. I had to turn the CCV around on the valve cover so I could use less fittings.
So here is what $3 orings ended up getting me to do:
BD Thruster turbo
gutted turbo outlet
Fuel Bowl Delete
foil delete(found a nice hole from the p/s pump hi pressure fitting)
Intake heater delete
ccv mod using a Moroso catch can
The nice part is I only have about $600 into everything.
I will post up some more pics as I get finished up.
Heres a shot before the install
