Ha! The AK is for Alaska... I'm an AR guy too, although I got plenty of trigger time on AKs when I was overseas...

Hey you said your are doing up pipes I highly recommend the BD Performance stainless up pipe kit along with wrapping them, the collector and turbine side with the Thermo Tech turbo insulate kit, I got mine from XDP. The kit has tons in it. I triple header wrapped and aluminized heat barrier overlay my up pipes, collector and turbine housing and I was amazed how much it did in the way of quieting things and eliminating turbo lag.
In that project with that stuff off it is a good idea to put new heater hoses and couplers on.
Same for hpop hoses if they are ancient.

That's something I'll have to consider. Which heater hoses are you referring to? As for the up pipe wrapping, what is the cost and how noticeable was the reduction in turbo lag (not entirely sure what that is by the way)?

The turbo insulate kit gives you everything for around $100 dollars.
Turbo lag is that period of time it takes for the turbo to spin up and build pressure. The kit holds the heat in which in turn shortens that time. It reduces heat under the hood as well.
The up pipe kit is new exhaust that eliminates leaking donut seals that when leaking hurt turbo performance and often time make an audible tick.
The heater hoses that are back at firewall that will be accessible when your turbo is off.

Is this Thermo Tec Turbo Insulating Kit #15002 the kit you used? The product description doesn't mention anything about wrapping the up-tubes. Does it make the exhaust any quieter?

That is the kit I used. It has a ton of material in it. I did find a typographical error in their packaging and called the factory. The cardboard pkg states kit includes a sheet that is something like two feet by three feet. It was a typo and factory was embarrassed.
It gave me enough to triple header wrap the up pipes.
I did discover it quieted things. The responsiveness of that thermal expansion without an over fueling injector is very nice.

Just curious on following;
Now your turbo is ready to install the actuator.
They need to be preloaded with tension or you will have waste gate flutter.
Some do 6 wraps of turn buckle and then pull on it with vise grips to get end onto post.
You can hook up compressed air to the actuator and watch gauge as the gate lever starts to move and adjust accordingly.
Take your time.

So what is the actual adjustment? When it opens or how fast? Is there better pressures or does it make much difference?

Great write up. I am also curious about the paint on the turbo. I painted my cooler tubes and was told it effects temp holding and I should not have. I never noticed a difference but still learning too. One day my kids will use less of my money and I can stop reading and actually do these mods I have been waiting a year to do. A final install pic would be nice. A turbo that nice must mate to a real nice engine.

2001 Excursion Limited Auto trans many buttons I still am finding. Factory 3 inch lift low mileage. 100% stock today we will see what tomorrow brings.


Living the dream 1-1/4 miles closer to heaven.

Actuators are all a little different. The best thing to do is watch a youtube video of setting up an actuator and getting it to start opening at exact pressure you want before you mount it as you don't want to try that after mounting. Buy a good actuator that has an adjustable
Turnbuckle.
If Ferrari and those boys powder coat tubes I think it's ok. Theoretically they are correct as hot air that is hot from being compressed in turbo travels that tube before entering that massive intercooler. Not a big deal if you want color.
I used Prizmatic Powders' illusion royal and racing red.
As far as pressure goes that's kinda linked to your tunes or engine light will flash when it thinks you are over boosting.
I have Applied Performance and it's set for twenty five.

I suggest painting valley white or silver. It is amazing how much it lights up the valley. This is good for finding leaks, fasteners, tools and where to grab sensor connectors.
I used Duplicolor primer and silver engine paint.

I can get off the highway and stand on hang on tire platform and touch that turbo turbine and N OT burn my hand.
That is stronger than new rope my friend.

Notice the DEI heat sleeve on the fuel return line on drivers side that normally is roasting by the turbo collector.

Darn I forgot to cut those baby blue zip ties holding up my plow harness.
And don't leave your map hose all unsecured like that! It got dark.
