WW/BD WASTE GATE INSTALL

Ok guys getting ready to install the ww and bds waste gate at the same time. My questions are 1. Been watching the video on u tube where he does it on the truck is that the best way. Do not want to pull turbo. 2. Will that nut come loose that holds the wheel on by hitting it with a air gun. 3. Anything special with waste gate to install its got to come off with outer turbo housing to do ww. or just follow direction on the waste gate for adjustment. 4. Do i leave red line off still or plug it back in since this waste gate is better than stock now. I want to do this i have 6 chip have bad turbo surge and bleeding boost thanks for the help andy

I would strongly suggest pulling the turbo to do it. While your there replace the o-rings on the pedestal and the the ebpv plunger. You CAN do it on the truck but it's amazing what you could find when the turbo is off.

Do not use an Impact on the compressor wheel unless you want to replace the shaft!

I broke a fin on the exhaust wheel by leaving the turbo in there. It is alot easier then you think. Hardest part of the whole deal is pulling the clamp on the up-pipes. Just spray the heck out of everything with penetrating oil the night before...

Definitely pull the turbo off. Just follow the directions for the waste gate adjustment, its really easy. I left my red line hooked up.

  • 2001 7.3L
  • 6 Inch lift, 36x16.50x16.5 Dick Cepek's
  • K&N FIPK II, Custom Straight Pipe Exhaust, TS 6 pos

  • Full Custom Stereo
