EGT gauge seems to be working...

edit-crappy ipicture, but it was reading approx. 700*F under acceleration.

I can't keep up with your frenetic pace.


btw, got the boost/pressure guage connected.

What kind of numbers should I look for(or avoid) on the EGT and pressure guage?

Lack of temp. As for boost, well in my opinion want as much as you can get! The peak psi on mine was 21 or so IIRC... and romp on that thing until the egt hits 1100 and back it down a little. I always let mine idle after parking until the egt came back down to at least 400 before I shut it off. As far as in between those extremes, well... it is what it is. With the auto it's always going to be working harder and making more heat than if you had a manual. With mine, a good easy cruise on back roads with 800-900 degree egt was normal. I couldn't get on the highway without seeing 1050+ and 1200+ wasn't unheard of. Just keep the amount of time cruising over 1100 in mind, because it will shorten oil life, and you'll see it creep after a while and you'll find the limit of how well your air to air (intercooler) removes heat. Generally, no amount more throttle input above 1100 degrees in top gear will yeild an increase in speed.

Found my oil leak after I got home from URE.
This Tdi sure makes some dirty oil...

That's weird how it looks like it is bubbling out. Is the crank case being pressurised?

Not sure. What would cause that in a 300?
My jerry-rigged pcv? lol
Obviously the sump will need to come off and be resealed.

It looked bubbly but really wasnt blowing oil out--just dripping.almost a full quart for 500 miles.

The first one needs to hold the crack closed how you want it.


If it is set too deep, it will be visible from the front side.




From there, it's on like donkey kong

When there is a section of a crack with a bigger gap on the back I like to seal it shut first. I use another one heated up, and drag it along the crack.


The big wave shape are for flat areas. I used the straighter ones in the curves.

This used only 15 but could have been done with less. Even 5 would have been strong enough for this part.

Found another crack starting in the corner.

Done

PCV could cause as could worn rings. What is your PCV setup? If its not correct, I wouldn't drive it because you could blow out the rear main seal. Any other oil leaks?

Seriously, his PCV is PVC! As in it looks like he robbed it off a plumber's pickup truck! I predict an Allard catch can is in his future though... I think it will need to be plumbed to the intake bellows though, so he might need to find a hose nipple that will fit... and some oil resistant hose would help.

Are you pulling my leg, Jimmy?
All the PCV does is rout the fumes back to the intake,no?
My PCV is just a PVC catch can, if you will.
In fact, that is a very common mod on the Ford diesel, routing the PCV away from the intake to a catch can the way International intended it!

C14, that seat base repair looks great!

I think what jimmy is saying is that if the PCV isn't working correctly excessive crankcase pressure can build up and that has been known to pop the rear main seal out..as well as cause other oil leaks and excessive oil consumption by blowing oil residue up past the rings on the cylinders downward intake stroke..

Joel, He isn't going to see more than 16 lbs of boost and probably will never see 1100 temps with stock fueling unless......

So theoretically, I could have too much crankcase pressure without the pcv routed into the intake?

Unless what? lol
I saw it climb almost to 1400 briefly a few times.
I'm not happy with the Auber turkey probe. The compression fitting isn't doing anything. It was tight when I fitted it but after 5oo+ miles it is loose.

Unless you adjust the wastegate maybe?

I had adjusted mine, and was running the uprated turbo from Allard... I swear I have video of it hitting 21 psi somewhere...

Maybe it's on my computer I'll look later

I would guess that you would need to connect the two wires for the sensor, or disconnect them depending on how the circuit works.

I doubt it, but a clogged PCV system could cause the excessive crank case pressure.
