Hopefully I'll have some numbers later this week .nice. Just sitting over here waiting for boost numbers and cruise EGT numbers.
Hey I had my PCV hooked up like you have but felt like it was pulling in way to much crank case oil vapor as the intake tube was coated. Is there some kind of restrictor in line there I caint see? Or is it of no concern and Im just gas engine guy worried about nothing?
Congrats on getting it running! So I caint tell is the MAF hiding in the filter housing? Or you running SD? I am running SD but I see most swaps running the MAF.Hopefully I'll have some numbers later this week .
You're worried about nothing . There's no restrictor in the pcv line from the factory, all the baffling to condense oil vapor is in the valve cover. A coating of oil on the inside of the charge pipes (or anywhere past the pcv inlet for that matter) is totally normal. I'd run an atmosphere vent, but I off road with this truck quite a bit and don't want to take any chances getting water in there.
I'm running speed density. Im not a big fan of maf's in high performance applications, always run into sensor limitations.Congrats on getting it running! So I caint tell is the MAF hiding in the filter housing? Or you running SD? I am running SD but I see most swaps running the MAF.
And thanks for the input I hooked my PCV back up to the intake pipe.

On the maiden voyage to town today, I saw no more than 785°F egts, 40psi total and 16psi from the LP turbo. Roads were snow covered and it had no problem spinning all 4 tires in 4th gear at 40mph LOL. Didn't get to hit wot due to the roads, but I think I need to put a lighter spring in my external gate.
Yes, my probe is pre-turbo. Not yet, needed a retune to get past a light throttle/low load overboost limp mode issue. Basically my compounds are making way more boost than ecu was expecting so it would go into overboost protection limp mode. But just got a new file from my tuner a few minutes ago so I'll try it tomorrow.Thats awesome! your EGT probe is at the manifold collector correct? Any hwy speed sustained numbers? on my little bv43a with tiny intercooler I see 1200-1300*F 10-12psi regularly on any slight uphill grade at 70mph. flat ground its around 950*F. Probe is in the port of the bv43a.
