I would think there would be a good chance of getting metal shavings on the inside of the manifild. Wouldn't that be bad? Do you have to pull the manifold and make sure it's completey clean and free of burrs to do this?
Mount it in the 6th runner of the manifiold. It will be the runner closest to the cabin of the vehicle. It's a total bitch to get to to say the least. That's why most people install it when they go single and have the manifold out. If you get a good line on it to drill MAKE SURE THE CAR IS ON AND IDLEING so all the metal shaving will get blown past the turbos when they are not spinning.
The other option is to drill the DP pretty close to the end near the turbos and have a useless gauge for show until you remove the turbos and can easily get to the exhaust manifold to drill and then have the gauge actually give you usuable data.
Correct... you will get the most accurate EGT reading if you mount the probe directly into the manifold..
Although, this causes a problem... especially for people that are basic BPU... they dont want to pull the manifold or fuss with installing something like this into something like that ( )
Anyways.. people I have talked with about this same situtation say that whatever reading you get.. add an additional 100 degrees and that will give you a pretty accurate reading of the exhaust temp.. Asumming you are mounting the probe into the DP as close as possible to the turbos..
Will be installing 272 BC cams, springs, retainers, keepers and of course those pesky oem seals.
Still a bit confused on when I need to put motor at TDC since I am doing the "rope trick" does this matter?
So would you do shimless buckets like this?
Please correct if wrong.
So my odometer stopped working and i have resoldered it 2 times and everytime, it starts counting for about 5km and then stopps again. I have done the splice mod on the connector on the back also have tried putting it back to original and also tried removing my speedo converter but it didnt...
Last night, in light rain, I was in third gear doing about 60km/h and punched it. Soon as the wheels broke traction the car wants to jolt to the right every time ? Is this normal? I don't remember it doing this before.
