Few questions ladies and gentlemen
Does anyone have pics of a d12 with a straight piped turbo back ? Without the exhaust brake/restrictor ?
I am wanting to remove it, I understand what it does, I understand it'spretty simple... Little bit of flex pipe and a few clamps but I just want to physically see it.
- has anyone noticed any performance gains from removal ?
I know this will not restrict the turbo as much by removing it, that is ideally what I'm going for. On colder days it feels like my truck does not pull as hard so I'm thinking the exhaust valve is sticking closed a little. also in the morning I notice the truck will open an close that valve fairly hard
- next question ... Has anyone swapped turbos on these trucks ? The stock HX52...there is a HX53.. any benefits ?
I just want the most out of my little engine, keep her running good and strong. If anyone has any comments feel free to shoot. I'm open to any criticism. I know it's not a CAT lol.
Thanks for reading, happy hauling
