Turbonetics BB INSTALLED!!!

Well I got the turbo in... only took 5 hours but that included a run to the dealership, a few runs back to my house and a few problems.* I blew an intercooler boot first time out.* Tightened it up, and drove around and my EGT"s were through the roof so I knew I had a boost leak somewhere, plus it was smoking badly and not that fast.* I tightened everything up on top, and the truck came alive.* The truck's response now is best described as linear.* It puts you back into the seat and keeps you there now instead of the rubberband effect I've noticed on stock turbos.* The EGT's are still up about 100 degree's, but I need to recheck the uppipes, I'll have my buddy do that in Texas, since he's already on the way.Pulling an empty trailer between 65 and 70 mph he's seen it stay at 600* and go up to 900* on inclines.* Also trying to keep the boost at or under 5 psi.Will post back when he gets it home so I can drive it some myself LOL!!!

I had to have mine shipped overnight... for 180 bucks... but I got it from blackwidowdiesel and it was like 1600 bucks IIRC.

It's kinda hard to get pics b/c everything is in the way.. but I got a pic of it before it went in

I'll post them up soon too!


I also added a new Tymar Filter Element - the truck is currently 1500 miles away in Texas... no problems so far pulling an empty 2,000lb trailer

I really do some good work haha...
