Intake silencer removal

DO NOT remove your turbo. Intake changes aside, the turbo is what breathes life into your engine!
Removing the intake silencer has but one purpose. . . to make the intake LOUDER. This will make the turbo spooling easier to hear, and the reciculation of air, via a bypass valve, louder as well.
You will see absolutely ZERO power gians from this mod. It's merely meant to "enhance" the driving experience by making things your engine's already doing easier to hear.

(Whoever said that the turbo might as well come off knows NOTHING about engines.)

removing the intake silencer. but with that, some said by removing it, the restriction of air flow decreases so much the turbo is pointles and can be removed.
Makes the turbo pointless I wish removing that thing gave you 70hp

I took a different approach so I could use the stock mountings. I got an identical intake pipe from a wrecking yard and drilled the heck out of it, so some air can come in closer to the filter box thus lessening the restrictions, I hope. Any air traveling through a pipe loses motion due to friction. Hook a 100 foot hose to your vacuum and see the difference; less vacuum and a harder working motor.
