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?

As far as the oil in the intercooler, you can try to wash it out but you are going to leave something behind, either water or oil or both. Best option is to just let it blow through and burn off. It won't hurt anything.

As far as getting the spider off, if all the clamps are loose and all the wires unplugged, it should just wiggle free. Some side to side and front to back motion should get it out.

Congrats on the new mods.

So I have been working on taking all the parts out over the last couple of days. I am taking my time so I dont get too frusterated. By far the longerst part has been getting those up pipes out. All I can say is wow! Those are not fun at all to remove. They are out finally and now it is time to start rebuilding.
