wastegate

  1. 6.4L Performance Parts Discussion
    If I do EGR delete, can I do wastegate at a later date with no problems as long as i run the street tune at 210HP gain? Also I have SCT X4 it accommodates my DPF delete with custom tunes, would it accommodate the EGR - if so does it give specific option to disable EGR or will it just...

    Hello, I have a 2002 F350 7.3PSD. The Engine light comes on intermittently but once it comes on it pretty much stays on. My wife says she notices a slight hesitation right before it comes on. Just last night I noticed, after the truck was shut off, that the exhaust smelled bad (worse than...

    I just took a turbo from a 97 e350 and a 95 f350. Opposite of what everyone has been saying, they are the same. Same a/r on compressor and exhaust side, same looking wheels, neither wastegated, shapes, angles,etc. I thought they were different? Thanks for any feedback.

    I pulled my turbo off to change my up pipes when I noticed my ebpv was leaking and when I went to remove my waste gate line the nipple broke off the waste gate PA salt = rust it's a never ending battle. I was wondering if I should do an ebpv delete since I guess all they do is leak??? I was...

    First let me start by saying sorry for using the wrong verbiage in the title but I don't know how else to describe it in short terms. I'm installing a turbo master wastegate controller and no longer have the need for the red tube that went to the wastegate. Does anybody see or know of any...

    Just wondering what the benefits of putting an external wastegate would be, and If I should do it. I have an 08 f250, EGR delete, DPF delete, 5" straight pipe, and a 310 tune. And I'm only pushing 35-37psi of boost so I don't think I'd need one? And if not when would I need one?

    I have been looking into the D66 and I believe it may be the route I go. The only catch is that I am saving up for 205/100 Hybrids which i plan on getting first. Is there a wastegated housing that I could fit onto the D66 in an attempt to keep the boost pressure below 40 PSI? Or would I just...

    Hi. I recently switched from an Edge programmer with monitor to my TC programmer that I have now. With the Edge programmer, it would read 20 psi of boost when hitting it hard. Now that I am using the TC I can only get 15 psi. I am using the Edge plugged into the odb port to read the boost...

    I have a 99 7.3 F-250. the truck has a 5" turbo back stright pipe exhaust, a pure diesel power 65 hp chip, and an intake. while driving the truck will build boost normally until it reaches 11-12psi then it seems like the wastegate opens and the boost pressure drops to around 5-6 psi. if i...

    I've looked for a thread on this but haven't been able to find much. I have a 1997 7.3 and I want it to make that boost sound between shifts. I've heard trucks do it and it sounds awesome. I'm getting rosewood stage 1 injectors in a couple weeks and was wondering if that would make a...
