Starting my new parts install
I ordered my parts over Christmas and have started the process of installing. I put in my DP Tuner a few days ago and have noticed a nice improvement on shifting since going to that from the Superchip that was in the truck. My other mods I am working on are ATS Ported Housing, Non EBPV Pedestal, Non EBPV exhaust housing, RiffRaff Plenum reinforcing rings, AIH delete, and CCV reroute.
First off I have to say I am surprised at how much oil accumulates everywhere because the CCV dumps into the intake. I removed the intercooler tubes and boots and they are just covered. Sure seems to reinforce the importance of a CCV reroute. How does one go about cleaning the intercooler? Can it be done with the intercooler still in the truck? I really dont want to have to remove it.
I do have a question since my progess has stopped because of it. I am having trouble removing the intake spider from the Turbo and the truck. I have removed all tubes and wires, loosened the lower boots, as well as the large clamp that connects the intake spider to the Turbo. It still feels very securely in place. In suggestions?
