Looks like a Napa filter. Stick with oem or racor filters with an OEM cap as the Napa filters can cause a lot of headaches and starting issues.

I did a flush about 1,000 miles ago. I was looking at the turbo it has a reman sticker on it.Yea I think it is napa filter for the oil. I have lifetime oil changes threw the dealer I got it from. It gets changed almost every 3 month when Im driving it. All the other filters are oem filters.

well after 2 weeks of battle I won. I had got it all back together and woud not put out any boost. didn't get the turbo lined up right with the uppipe. pulled it apart tried again. still didn't get it. this time I cut the down pipe out and took the turbo back out. cleaned everything real good sprayed copper gasket on the flages and put it back together. so now I was sure I got it sealed. put it all back together with a new 4in down pipe. well It would take till 35mph before I got to 4# of boost then it would shoot up to 26# and doing 80mph in a snap. I cant have that trying to pull a trailer, so I was making sure I had everything tight no leaks still couldn't fix the problem. last night while the wife was at taylor swift concert I welded the stock down pipe back together and put it in. low and behold it all works. spools up faster then before, im glad to have my truck back. and never had to put it in the shop. I will have to admit, I will feel comfortable doing my head studs now. the top end of the motor is easy now. Thanks everyone for your help this place is always been great

sucks you couldn't get your 4" downpipe lined upright. helps keep those EGT's nice and low compared to the 3" stock pipe. glad to hear you got your rig back on the road though.

Your downpipe wouldn't affect spoolup and boost like that. Soemthing else was going on.
