I have an '88 BJ-74 with 13B-T. I live in Albuquerque, New Mexico at 5,000 ft. My cruiser was obviously from sea level. It blows copious amounts of black smoke when accelerating, or starting in cold weather. I frequently drive as high as 10,000'. The higher I go the worse it gets. So, can I get smaller injectors, or, increase turbo boost, or reduce fuel pump pressure to lean out my fuel/air mixture? Or, are there any other ideas that I didn't think of to fix this problem?
Thanks,
Rob

Shim that wastegate and wind that turbo up. Pretty hard to hurt a 13B-T.

Talk to Rutbeer, he has one too.

You can turn the fuel down at the pump too, but increasing the boost is more fun.

I should start with the simple and less expensive things ..

1. Air filter ?

2. Fuel filter .. ?

3. Add more boost ( boost controler - bleeder for your CT26 ) and check if that reduce the black smoke.

4. Buy a Pyro Guage

5. Finaly get the injectors services ( here are very cheap like 25 USD per injector .. )

let us know ..

P.S. maybe your HAC isin't finction well ..

How does one turn up the boost?

Search= Boost Controler

Boost Controler = device that will " lie " to your factory wastegate and alow your turbo make more pressure after the wastegate blleeds it ..
