    my turn to mod the diesel. Got me a new ported turbo housing and turbo wheel. Didnt get many pics, took these and my camera died, I was elbow deep in blow by gunk so I didnt feel like fiddling with the camera.

    not really concerned with numbers, but fords are notorius for turbo surge/stall and this fixes it. Also gives faster spool up time, more airflow and higher boost numbers, lowers egts too. It also helps with low end to lower my 0-60ft times ;)

    Cool. I just put a new turbo in last week and love it. It made the chips alot more driveable and keeps the max temps down. It boosts like a mother though. I can hit 48 psi without even trying.

    Me? I'm about done for a little while. So far I've got 4" stainless exh, afe intake, ez/tst stacked, ats 2 pc exh manifold, phat shaft 62 turbo, luk cerametallic clutch, and a fass 95gph fuel pump to put on sometime after this weekend.

    I still want to get it on a dyno pretty soon.
