Made a new charge tube. Looks alittle cleaner. I've been running it for a week now at 8lbs of boost. Still running good. I haven't done any real long wide open runs yet. It pulls hard tho for the 5-10 secs I've run it hard. I need a wide band o2 sensor before I do any long pulls. I drove 40 miles on the highway at 70-75mph and it seems to be better on gas when I'm not in boost. Also doesn't need to downshift nearly as much going up hills or overpasses.
The turbo is a t04e 57trim. I am planing on an Intercooler. It's not that important at the moment. It's just starting to get cold here in IL so I have some time to figure out an Intercooler. But by spring time I'm hoping to have one for sure. No BOV right now. The hood closes and the insulation doesn't even touch.
I would be very, very careful with no bov. My bov started to fail on my supercharged Hemi and it would stay wot for a second or 2 after letting off. Very unsafe. I would think with a turbo it would be deadly.

Not dangerous at all. Superchargers have a bypass valve, it's different than a blow off valve. Superchargers spin in direct relation to rpm, so at 3,000 rpm it's flowing the same cfm of air regardless of throttle position, so a bypass valve relieves all that air if your under light throttle. Under light throttle, a turbo is not producing excessive air flow. Buick grand nationals, gmc typhoon/cyclones, among other turbocharged vehicles were not equipped with blow off valves from the factory.
