Looks good, Scotty. I want to install an EGT probe and gauge when they arrive. We all need more details, point us in the right direction. ??? ???

Isspro gauge...Pods are in prototype mold form now and hope to have some formed in the next few weeks.<br>We just have the gauges in cups stuck to the top of the dash with velcro til our pods are done.<br>Scotty Air III is getting close... ;)<br><br>

Looks good. I'll be puttin gauges on as soon as I get my truck (going to order with 2-3 weeks). <br><br>Question for you....did you remove the turbo to do the drilling and tapping for the probe ?<br>

No we left the turbo on...use grease on the bit and clean it often...then use a magnet in the hole to collect the shavings...on start up the small amount of what might be left gets pushed out the exhaust. I have done it this way on many many trucks. No problemo.

That is the method I used on my '97 - and it worked great. But, I was concerned about the '03 with the placement of the turbo. It is directly underneath - it seems that any shavings that fall on the inside are going to fall out of reach - where on the '97 they just fell down and landed right under the hole where I picked them out with a magnet.....But that is encouraging that you didn't have any problems - I hate to pull the turbo off.<br><br>Thanks<br>rob<br>

<br>No we left the turbo on...use grease on the bit and clean it often...<br><br> [laugh] Boy we have great communicaton within Wildcat. Scotty and I discussed the pyro install, and we decided to do it as he had mentioned. <br><br>Then I got to looking a little closer at everything, and decided to be anal, so I dropped the turbo, and stuffed a rag in between the manifold and the turbo. I'm glad I did. Even heavily greased, a magnet, and a shop vac, when I pulled the rag away it had alot of shavings on it. Now I realize that the shavings would need to wedge between the impellor blades and the housing to cause any damage (not likely), I decided that with my luck, something would likely happen [laugh]<br><br>So I'd definitely recommend dropping the turbo on the 03's.<br><br>Rod

:(<br><br>Well at least I got the pix correct. [laugh]<br><br>Sorry for the confusion folks...I was going by what our last conversation was before he tackled it. [eyecrazy]<br><br>EH

Push Rod & Scotty, How about dropping the turbo and inserting a sheet of galvanized in between turbo and manifold to catch the metal filings? Afterwards slide out the metal with filings on the surface.

That would probably work, but you'd have to be careful not to tilt the galvanized when pulling it out, otherwise the shavings could slide off. With a shop rag, the shavings tend to stick to it.<br><br>Rod
