Where is this piece on the motor? Can somebody like me tackle this little under taking. I did install my egt probe myself that was easy. I would like to do this mode to help with the temps under the hood. Does anyone have pics of the part on the motor so I know what I am looking for. I think I see the right part but it looks like it is a pain to get off. Any tips... Thanks in advance, this site is great!!!
The only pain is breaking loose the PCV inlet hose while holding the hose clamp loose, I used a pry bar. Other than that, easy stuff.
Hard to see, using a 5/16” socket, loosen the hose clamp at the Air box, and loosen the hose clamp at the other end of the intake tube, and then remove from the Mouthpiece.
Remove the turbo resonator (black plastic displaying 6.6) from the Mouthpiece using a T-30 torx and loosening one more hose clamp.
Remove the PCV inlet line (see picture with resonator plug installed in mouthpiece inlet),
and finally, loosen the last large hose clamp at the turbo to remove the mouthpiece, seen just below the G A R of Garret in the pic.
When replacing the mouthpiece, it helps to have another set of hands to help position the mouthpiece and hose clamp while tightening. Go ahead and move it from the 12 o'clock position over to 9 o'clock to make it easier. Also, reposition the spring clamp for the PCV 180 degrees (facing forward) to make it easier.
