banks exhaust brake kit install
hello. i bought a banks exhaust brake kit and am getting ready to put it on. i'm a decent backyard mechanic. i've heard getting any help from banks is pretty tough, although i haven't tested that yet.
it looks like the hardest part is getting a couple of those bolts off the turbo.
has anyone on here done this mod? any tips or traps i should be aware of? any resources you could point me to? youtube video or something. i didn't see one. a mechanic friend suggested possibly taking off the entire turbo, although he has never done this mod. said the turbo was only on with 2 bolts?
is it possible to do this mod only part way? i was going to put on new valley boots and was considering that while i had it mostly removed i would get the exhaust brake turbo stuff installed and then finish the rest of it later. just thinking out loud as i may have a only a day to work on it.
i also understand that there is a quite a stock restriction exhaust wise coming out from the turbo,,seems to sort of defeat the purpose of putting on a 4" exhaust if there is a stock 2.5" restriction on the back of the turbo. has anyone noticed any peformance enhancements from the banks kit getting rid of this restriction? that was one of their saleman's claims.
thanks, any info appreciated.
