Some updates and upgrades

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
Non-EBPV pedestal
gutted turbo outlet
Regulated return
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

Ok so the upgrades are done!


BD Thruster turbo- a lot louder than stock and builds boost fast. Almost no smoke on the extreme tune. Very quick throttle response.I will get my EGT probe installed some time tomorrow and see how the Temp is.

Non-EBPV pedestal and gutted turbo outlet- I'm sure it does more than just eliminates the faulty o-ring, I say it's good for 100hp.

Regulated return,Fuel Bowl Delete, allows me to have 60 psi all the time. I am still trying to find the sweet spot on the pressure.Any suggestions?

foil delete(found a nice hole from the p/s pump hi pressure fitting)-This does make things a bit cleaner and you really here the whine.

Intake heater delete-really just looks better. I claim another 65hp.

ccv mod using a Moroso catch can- told me just how many miles are on this pig. It chugs like a steam train. Oh well what do you expect for 210k

HPOX- this combined with the RR and FBD make it idle smooth as silk. I really cannot believe how quiet it actually is.

Last I cleaned and painted the I/C tubes and the intake cluster. Just for looks and at least another 50hp.

I will have some pics up after the daylight returns.

Sorry for the delay, but here are some pics
New wheels to boot:







So the CCV mod using a vented catch can results in a "LOT" of blow-by that really smells. So I am going to modify the setup.
The filter will come off. I have made an adapter that converts it to a 3/4 hose. The hose will run to a fitting in the exhaust. To solve the pressure issue I will use a AIR check vavle. The drain on the bottom of the can will be replaced with a hose and checkvalve that allows it to drain back into the oil pan. This will eliminate the need to drain the tank and the smell in the cab.
