Osmond.mark's Bullet Proofing Build

I bought a 2004 F250 King Ranch a few months ago and it is now come time to bullet proof it.

So far I have installed a 5" diamond eye turbo back with 4" downpipe, and a edge insight cts monitor and also tinted the front windows. After installing the monitor is when I realized I have to get that oil cooler out asap! I was having oil temperatures reaching 230 degrees unloaded and a delta as high as 46 degrees! So this brings on this build.

I have the fully bullet proof kit from bullet proof diesel, with a egr delete. I cannot say enough about BPD, great bunch! John didnt mind spending the time with me to get this kit put together and sent out.

I apologize for the limited pictures but I never remember to take them when I get at it.

I also noticed on the monitor that the veins in the turbo were sticking so I pulled the turbo apart and cleaned them up while it was all off. There was a lot of carbon in the turbo! I cleaned it up the best I could put some anti seize on it and put it all back together. Sorry for no after pictures. Everything seemed free when I was finished.

I was also getting a whine/scraping noice when boosting under a load, I wonder if this could be the cause of that? There is no significant amount of shaft play and the blades are not hitting the housing.

I have the oil cooler and transfer block all installed just waiting for the IPR Screen Kit to come in tomorrow lunch time. There was a couple small pecks of dirt on it so I will replace it while it is accessible.



I am not sure if I have the updated turbo oil drain tube or the old style. Can someone confirm this for me? If it is the old style I will replace it with the updated drain if I can get it in by tomorrow.



Ford is also checking to see if they can get me the lower dash from a manual f650 as well. I would like some room to put some switches.

Your turbo oil line is for sure the old style. The new has no flex built in. The drain appears to be old style, can't tell from the picture. The tube on the drain should remain a constant size thru the bend(no size reduction).

I am pretty sure that the drain is the old style. I know that the feed is the old style but I will worry about that later as it is not that big of a deal to change like the drain. I will get one ordered.

Congrats on doing it once and being done with it. Yeah, your turbo definitely needed to be pulled and cleaned up. Not sure about the whining/scraping noise, but it (obviously) shouldn't be doing that... Did you figure out what that was?

I haven't figured out what it was. Honestly when I pulled the turbo apart to be cleaned I expected to feel a bad bearing but the shaft felt great, no abnormal play or roughness, felt as it should. When I get it all back together I will try it and see if I still have the noise and go from there then.

Thanks, I want to keep this truck so when I fix something on it I want it to be done once and for all. I dont want to always be thinking when will I have to replace the oil cooler again.

When I finally build up the budget again and get studs installed is when I will be 100% happy!

With the BPD kit you remove the HPOP screen. The new transfer block has a stainless filter built in.

Nothing to do with the IPR has to be touched. I just wanted to check the screen and am going to replace it while it is out anyway.
