94.5-97 powerstroke dont come with waste gates on the turbos, new superdutys they come with them.I have a 97 stroker i was wondering if i could mess with the waste gate at all to make better boost? but if i do that would i need a boost gauge first to make sure that i dont over boost it?
:doh::doh: i completely forgot. ill get it some time this weekTake a picture...
map line like stated below ...wat would be the easiest way or wat is the easiest way to hook up a boost gauge ina 97 powerstroke
T into the map line.....
U can unplug the "valve". It is a 2 wire connector on the drivers side of the turbo. When everything is working correctly, the "valve" closes abit, to make the engine work harder, which builds heat faster. If things arent working correctly, it can close anytime, idle or WOT, or any time in between...causing a sever loss of power...especially if your up to speed on the road or highway.... trust me, its not a real good feeling when it happens.... If unplugged, it may take an additional 5 mins b4 you get any warm cab heat.
Mines been unplugged for about 3 years now, with no problems. I finally gutted the pedastool (removing the rod and internal spring assembly).
IMO, I belive it to be a wise choice to unplug it...just for peace of mind.
Some are using it as an exhaust brake, theres a write up somewhere for the mod.
