Default Turbochargers Waste Gate Install

Not to bad all in all. Worked on a hot motor so that made it a little worse. Nothing found on the install that is not noted by others. Right side heat shield bolt is a bitch, waste gate is in the way. New waste gate was perfect match. Moving not removing the heat shield was a good tip. About a 2 hour job for me, waiting for a rain shower to pass, and cussing the above mentioned heat shield bolt.

Not sure what it has done for me yet, went out and ran it but am not sure yet. Need to set the Greddy Pro II up. I did not disconnect the neg. when I first ran it, then I did but I don't think for long enough.


Just happy it is in and will play with the boost now.

Ohhh and the best thing is it gave me an excuse to buy the 7 piece ratchet Metric wrench set Sears has on for 44.00

Thanks Rice Killer!

About 155 miles down to you guys on the 2nd, I may take a shot at it, all PA Turnpike then Garden State so should not be a bad run. Would love to meet you guys and have some help on my first run down a 1/4. You still going? Ping me off list let me know.

I am glad you are happy with it. It may even have been my core that you got. I will see you on the 2nd. I am going to be making some runs tonight, hopefully I will be in the 13's.
