68mm vgt's sucking in filter minder

How many of you guys running a 68mm vgt(KC, MTW, Barder, RCD) know whether or not if you're sucking in the filter minder? I know I am. I have to constantly push the button to reset it. The filter is 100% clean and I even run a pre filter. These 68 vgts really suck some air and makes me think that they need more of it. Makes me think that the normal aftermarket intakes like AFE, Banks, S&B, Volant etc just don't flow enough air for these large vgt's. Curious to know what you guys with the 68 vgt have noticed. Matt at CED has a custom intake and No Limit is just to release a custom one. The No Limit is 5" from the turbo all the way to a 5" inlet AFE filter. I hope to have the No Limit CAI on the truck in a couple months when I get it out of storage.

I think a larger CAI with a larger inlet filter would really make a difference! More available air for the turbo, cooler temps and a little better throttle response are said to be had.

Might be able to put an intake for the s400 turbo on it and the could help a lot.

My filter minder is broken... so i can't chime in on that aspect. But i can say that I dyno'd the difference and it did not make that big of a difference.


I 100% pulled out the filter and blocked off the hot engine air so it was sucking 60 degree air from right outside. It did not make much of a difference on the dyno. But... that was one test one time on one truck with one dyno. I am going to do a little more testing before posting the dyno graphs

Thanks for the input charlie! There should be some results on the No Limit soon. Garrett(Ptsuperd) will be running run soon with his RCD 68 vgt for some feedback.

I know Greg from MPD went from a S&B to one of Matt's custom CAI and noticed a big difference with his 366 non vgt.
