Cleaning Turbo

I thought I saw a write up where someone cleaned their turbo, or did I read this in DP mag?

Along with the rest of the B.S. the dealer told me to replace they mentioned to clean my turbo. I was thinking about doing this anyway, but have been haveing a hard time finding the wirteup.

Can anyone help me out.

I guess I'll try again.

From what I remember I look fairly easy, just don't to chance of dorking something else up before I take a trip to see Scuffy.

It's also advisable to take LOTS of pictures your first time out and MARK everything for orientation. Make sure you plan a full day to do it and try to do the EGR delete up-pipe while you're in there. Much easier with the turbo out. Get a turbo replacement kit (less than 10 bucks) cause you most likely will drop a turbo attachment bolt. Kit comes with 3 and spacers ('03 models). It's a biotch to get the turbo out the first time. Rolling the plastic "cover"/wiring harness back helps a LOT.

yw, and it is pretty simple cleaning it. Getting Turbo in/out total different story believe it or not, the 3m kit to use for cleaning they have at my local WalMart. Autozone had one as well, but Walmart (had it in the section by their touchup paint) had like 5 of those kits. Good Luck.

Thanks for the insight guys. When Scuffy is done tracking down "ghosts" I'm gonna give it a shot.
