I have a snow performance water/**** setup in my truck. Egts noticeably cooler when it’s going. Don’t know if I notice a power increase or not.
takes up a lot of engine bay real estate the way mine is installed.
Bad photo here I’ll try and find the video I made. Pump and reservoir far left...
Update:bit the bullet and paid to have a shop reseal my crossover, up pipe and downpipe as well as fabricate a hanger for the downpipe. Well worth the money, like a breath of fresh air for the truck. It’s way quieter, boosts way quicker and seems to just run better.
Quickly spools to 6psi which...
Thanks for the clarification, this thread has kinda become my all around exhaust leaks thread. I’m not too concerned about the downpipe now performance wise, however with it being winter I’m using the hvac system a lot more and I get that exhaust smell inside.
I’ll take a look at that...
I found time to get under the truck today and this is what I find. No wonder the DP isn’t sealing. Held on with plumber strap. I don’t have the tools to fab something up to bolt to the downpipe, is there something missing I could buy? Might just take it to an exhaust shop and have them reseal...
Oh cool. I thought this was a factory turbo truck. Is one or the other a better turbo? I’ll have to do some research now as I thought this was factory. This truck has been one discovery after another as far as mods go. Thanks I’ll see what I can do about sealing it up.
Am I looking at the downpipe here? Is it stock? I don’t see anywhere to tighten it up and there’s a lot of soot here. Maybe 1/8 or more of play. Is the part with the 12 points the elbow followed by the dp?
I’ll take a look when it’s light out thanks. After that’s tight I’ll try the vacuum method to check for any more leaks. Does using a vacuum to push air through the exhaust work beyond the downpipe? Is there a proper way to see if my up pipes, crossover etc are sealed?
Let’s see if this works
how is the Downpipe connected? It looks and feels like it just slips in. Could this cause low boost or is it too late in the system? Forgive my ignorance but I’m not at all familiar with how the turbo system works
I put the vacuum to my exhaust and sprayed around a bit, although I didn’t really need to as I could hear and feel the air here. This pipe I’ve got my hand on has a lot of play. Downpipe? How do I upload a video?
