Wicked wheel install questions.

Ok. First my mods; 6637, 4" turbo back, ts 6 pos chip, zoo dad and a few other that don't really pertain. (Gauges, lights, etc) since I'm pulling the turbo, my plan is to clean the ebpv,(not planning on a delete) cleanin and polishing the intake pipes, and a general cleanin up of the engine bay. I also purchased a boost fooler from dieselsite just in case. My question is, what prep work needs to be done first? I'm planning on soaking the bolts to help them loosen of course but, I wanna pick your brains before I do. What would you guys do, recommend, replace, etc while in the process? I also plan on having my canned tunes custom tuned after the install. Hit me guys. I'm ready.

Wicked wheel install questions.

Why do you not want to delete the EBPV? I deleted mine and couldnt be happier. No more oil leaks, sounds better, and runs a little better. If your taking it off anyway just delete it IMO. Sounds like your on the right track with things though

Wicked wheel install questions.

I have a few weeks to decide so I will look more into it. I'll assume I'll need a new pedestal? Also, should I mess with the wastegate at all?

Wicked wheel install questions.

I used the non EBPV pedestal and outlet. Both from riffraff. As far as the waste gate that's a wide open topic. Run it and see what boost you make and go from there. Some guys like to disconnect them some crank them tight and some don't mess with them. It's something you'll just have to experiment with.

Re: Wicked wheel install questions.

I didn't have to soak any of my bolts in my 01. As far as I can tell the turbo hasn't been pulled ever. 207xxx miles. The only birch was the uppipe to turbo connection. A little fused together. Southern truck tho. Also have you considered a ccv mod? When I pulled my intake it was full of sludge from the ccv. I think it's a worth while mod.

Depends on where you live. I have thought about delete EBPV but I live in cold weather and have EBPV help close the valve and warm up the engine faster. If you live in warm weather then u should delete it.

I just had this done on my truck last week. I had the original wicked wheel put in (not the WW2), new seals for the turbo housing, the EBPV deleted, and the waste gate actuator replaced. I have a 6 position chip from Tyrant (I live 5 minutes from the shop) and I was told that the tune makes the boost fooler pointless. Your tuner increases boost but still allows the waste gate and everything to work as designed. I was also informed that disconnecting / tightening / or otherwise modifying the waste gate would not gain me anything. Many people on here will tell you that your turbo won't last long over 25 psi. Also, I couldn't find any threads where someone was raving about how much faster his truck is after a boost fooler / disconnecting the waste gate / etc. It takes about 3 extra minutes to warm up in 30 degree weather, I've noticed. In my opinion, the truck is running perfectly now. The turbo spools quickly and peaks at around 23 psi. The turbo surge is gone, too. I assume you want more power so it seems like you wouldn't want to leave a restrictive device in your truck.

As 350 One Ton said, you can experiment with the redline and wastegate and see what you like.
I had the redline disconnected for years. I periodically hooked it back up to see if it was all in my head and sure enough I prefered it disconnected. Not to say that it was "faster" but I felt it drove better.
That turbo has since died on me though......

And FWIW, there is no adapter to use the EBPV with a van turbo, but I had one custom made just because I like the EBPV
A lot of guys delete, but a lot of guys prefer to keep it as well. Personal opinion.
The restriction is negligible at best.
