So do you need a boost fooler and a elbow or a j hook?? Also can all stock components hold up to a little extra boost outta a stock turbo?? Including the turbo itself??
A boost fooler is needed or the truck will de fuel itself and not create power. a boost elbow is easier and more reliable than messing with adjusting the wastegate. The only way to create boost on an HY turbo is a J-hook. A stock truck will take up to 40psi comfortably.
Wow thanks I never knew all that. Where do I find a boost fooler and a hook or elbow?? Also that's not gunna destroy the turbo faster??
Lets nip this in the bud before it gets to complicted. Fill out your sig so we kno what year and trans your truck is. All manual trucks had the hx35 turbo. All autos from 98-2000 had the hx35 as well. The autos from 01-02 had the hy turbo. If you have an hx you need a boost elbow. If you have an hy you need a j hook. Dieselautopower.com or ebay are probably your cheapest and best sources. Also you shoudnt exceed 40psi without studs, but furthermore you shouldnt exceed 35psi with an HX or 32psi with an HY. Yes they will spin faster, but its just hot air and eventually something will let loose.
