Ok parts have arrived what else

OK my yellow tape arrived today!! (First Time)

Here is what is planned as of now. I have all new IC boots (old one's extremely oily), a turbo re-install kit (existing one is leaking), all new CCV O-rings (not positive if I'm just going to clean and put back or run out the back), EBP sensor tube clean/replace. I will not know if anything else is leaking until I can get the IC tubes and spider out of the way. I'm also planning on cleaning out the IC. And I'm planning on doing the foil delete.

Are there any other items I need to check and look at while I'm trying to make it last.

After you get the IC pipes and spider off spray the valley down really good with simple green and rinse it off real good. And watch for more leaks.

Look for leaks at up pipes and turbo pedestal while your in there.

There is a fuel line that runs on the passenger side that is held by a bracket that could use some protection. Robin covers it here.

With all that stuff out of the way, it's a great time to look under the valve covers, re-torque and 50 cent mod per Chris here.

That's a couple easy,cheap items that may save headaches down the road. Others will be along.

Spraying the motor down with simple green then rinsing it off might be a little hard. The only garage I have to work in is in my buddy's basement. Don't think his wife would be too happy if I ruin it.

All ready planning on pulling the turbo and pedistal and replacing everything there. Not positive EBV is leaking or not. Will check all of those items once I get it off.

How do I know if I'm leaking at the up pipes?

Also forgot to mention that I bought the S&B intake and plan on doing the zoodad at the same time.

If i'm already under the VC should I worry with changing out the injector o-rings? Or how would I know if they where bad?

I didn't purchase a new pedistal, if the EBV is leaking should I just delete it? If so what does this intail?

If the up pipes are leaking, you will see signs of soot around the baby butt. Be aware if you remove the turbo, you may disturb the OEM seal there. See post # 9 from Ken in the attached link.
https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/1...questions.html

I don't believe I would mess with injector o-rings unless you were having some kind of problem, hard starting, ... How many miles on the truck? How's it run, smoke, power,..? Hopefuly others will chime in.

My pedestal leaked. I used a rebuild kit from Guzzle because I use the valve as exhaust brake. You can plug you pedestal or buy a non EBPV pedestal.

My truck deffinetly has a hard start problem, but that is because the PCM sends nothing to the GPR for now I will use a momentary switch to fix.

As for the up pipes do I need to order the felpro gaskets for rehooking them to the turbo. Deffinetly can't afford to purchase bellowed up pipes now.

And my oil leak (hopefully back side of turbo) is getting worse and can't wait any longer.

Are you doing plenumn inserts also ? I would do these also - Makes it a much tighter fit on the plenumns

Best I can find is that no one has plenum inserts for a e99 truck only the 99.5 and ups

Does the valve covers have to be torqued back to a certain spec?

Also, should I go ahead and clean the IPR while i'm working on it?

And how do you drain the HPOP when changing the oil? I know the shop I used to take it too just drained the bottom side only.

Valve cover just tight, not too tight. To be technical.

I just had my turbo off for a rebuld and discovered leaky uppipes after i got it off. The early 99 bellowed are $800 .... I had the money for them but couldn't justify the price for what it was. I welded up the places where the original doughnuts wore into the pipes and ground it smooth, got the oversized ones and put it back together. Was a pain getting all ligned up again, hope it lasts!
