Talking GTP38R/1.15 Housing is on.

Well I got my new boots yesterday = Thanks Clay. And today I put in almost 9 hours looking,cleaning, working on BIG RED and its awesome.
I started taking ever thing off going to put on the new turbo. But when I got every thing off even that darn up pipe clamp . I noticed it was pretty dirty down there and I just cleaned the motor this week I thought until I got the spider and turbo off. So I sent a hour 1/2 clean in there problaly want never be in there again I hope. Well after that I changed the y pipe boots and put the turbo on and started putting it all back togthere again that dang up pipe gave me grief but its all done and buttoned up.
So I started it up and let it warm check for leak all was good for now then went for a ride. And all I can say is WOW, WOW, WOW it runs great and sounds awesome. My son came in later on and we had dinner as you know he is a DODGE guy but he wanted to go for a ride tonight. We did and he really liked it also. I have more to say but I am beat. WOW

Great talking to you today Eddie, and glad you got it done.

Wish I could have been more helpful, but I too was busy with another vehicle, and my install was well over a year ago. Anyone remember or want to comment on the Tq spec for the 38R to pedestal bolts?

I see that housing is red. Keep us posted on how that holds up. Hopefully the lower EGTs will keep that happy for a long time.

What kind of fuel system are you running?

Here's the $300 car I bought for my son, it has a radiator leak and needs some body work. Aside from that, 68k miles, AC, what else can I say:

Yea I wanted it to be red it may be rust like most soon but we will see. I hope it last a long time, I was in it pretty good and I only hit about 1000 degree. Stuff was flying by so fast I couldnt watch the gages to good @over 110 mph couldnt wacth that also. I know it was over 35 lbs boost it pegged my gauge easy and I was letting out. I have 4:10s and was winding up quick. Man its fun

I'm still running the tunes Jody gave me for the 200/30% injectors. I hope to get live tuned one day but I talked to Jody and he said it should be fine and so far it seems to be. Did you have a issue when you changed your turbo with your tunes

No, different situation for me. I think you are fine as the fueling is based on demand, and/or boost. I believe you are in good shape, just don't prove me wrong and throw a rod.
