Just had a realization that I'm still running the LT MAF with the turbo and i don't think any of the other turbo owners doing this. So, this could be a potential cause of P0171 and/or the lack of boost buildup. I'll switch it back to OEM MAF this weekend, assuming I can find it!
I am using it, do not recall hearing not to use it, but my wife says I am hard of listening from time to time. No problems that I am aware of after putting 1500 miles on the turbo.Correct, not tested. For those that I have asked I've repeatedly said not to use it due to lack of testing.
What you need is one of those LC fire trucks--or maybe a WE conversion kit. Could be a market for those in the PNW. Bonus: hit the lights/siren and people get out of your way...The fire situation is a freaking mess. Four fires in the Rogue Valley and two have a potential to really f*** up my life

1) Changed the stock new gen blue hub fluid to 20k from stock. Brownish goo came out. put 50ml of 20k in. Temps are 8-10* cooler on average. Otherwise 20k old cooling system. Stoked on that.
2) Oil feed line at top of turbo worked itself "hand tight". Happened to notice it was loose and pulled the feed line, re-tightened the insert into the turbo, then reattached feed line. I had checked this multiple times but recommend you all keep an eye on yours as well. Looked like the thread sealant had cooked out of the threads loosening it up. Wonder if tight temp thread sealant is a thing.
3) I have an obnoxious rattle under acceleration. Can't find it. Probably not turbo related but its going to drive me insane.
Love this turbo so much. Its such a game changer for the 80.
I am curious on this also. Although I am registered outside of an Air Quality Management Zone, I would like to get the CARB approval in case that falls through at some point.
Well - finally threw my first turbo related CEL. P0172 - System too rich bank 1.
This was after driving up rattlesnake pass outside of SLC. Cleared the CEL and it hasn't come back.
Spent the last week driving from Seattle - Zion (UT) straights through, across UT over the week, then shot back across to Seattle in a day.
On the drive out in high heat had a few odd idle issues. Pulled into a gas station near pendleton OR and the engine stuttered and almost died but keyed off before it could freak out.
Idle is now a bit rough on cold starts. Going to start looking for post turbo leaks, but no evidence of any and a somewhat "new" motor with all new OEM parts.
Anyone else run into this?
