Was able to get the 4th gen PS bracket on without much trouble at all. Just had to bend the oil feed line slightly. Only had to extend the power and ground pigtail. Other 2 were fine.

I decided to redo my sensor wiring a little bit, along with my vacuum lines as well. With the lack of oil in the catch can after running it for 2 years I decided to scrap it and route the line pre-turbo. Works just fine that way.

One thing I discovered while being in the middle of this, was fuel in the fpr line. Turns out the fpr has been blown out for awhile. I guess 450k miles will do that LOL.

Another thing I knocked out today were the vacuum lines from the TB. I had the hard lines and the rubber plug in there since I bought it. The zip tie I have been using to ensure the rubber block doesn't shoot out under boost, has flexed the fpr hardline to the point it leaks. So I finally did away with it. MAP, FPR, BOV and brake booster all come off the same line now. Will know how it does tomorrow.

Also have some exhaust leaks to take care of.

Some before and after pics of the TB mod.

Hopefully I can get a little more fuel out of it up top. It shouldn't lean out as soon now.

Also a new turbo blanket. The price was right. This one fits better too.
