38r help

I just got a 38r and im really excited to install it but I was wondering if there's any tricks to getting the back clamp that holds the Turbo to the up pipes off? Also how do you take the ccv off?

spray some dope on it and whoop the piss out of it. to remove the ccv you just take a piece of 4'' exhaust and put it where the plastic piece was, remove the doghouse from the valve cover, flip it 180 and run a hose to wherever you want

That back clamp is a royal pain. I have had the best luck with a small screwdriver and working it under the band. Lube and a hammer worked for 2/3 of the clamp but it has three V sections and the one that I couldn't get a hammer on stuck.

You have a boost leak somewhere most likely. Go over every clamp again and make sure they're properly seated.

I'd bet one of the clamps between the spider and the intake plenum didn't get snugged up just right, or you'd have blown the boot off and found the problem already.

Cool, make sure the MAP line has a good connection on each end too, and that the "T" is still properly installed in the line.

Are you running tunes? Black smoking at full throttle?
