Few questions..

my truck is a 95' stoke with a 3" dp to 4" straight, ts 6 pos. stock pre set tunes, and it has a aftermarket filter on it... the guy before me had a k&n in the factory box, but then he said he got a good deal on a spectre filter which is pretty big. so he took the top half of the box out, took the two posts that the box screwes onto and put in a 6" long 4" piece of exhaust tube in the end of the factory intake and then put the spectere on it.. I have noticed here lately that I can hear the turbo spool up, which sounds like a loud zippp sound.. I plan to do a diy 6637 for it here in the near future but i cant at the moment.... So can I continue to run it this way, or should I put the box back in with the k&n?

Also, How hard is it to put a steering gear box in the same truck? I have to buy one and put it in because mine is shot I believe.. It has all fresh ball joints/tie rod ends etc etc underneath and still am chasing a loose wheel. The pitman arm is good aswell. can I adjust it in any way?

Any good write ups with pictures are good, I like being able to see the stuff as I read it.
thanks, nick

Take that filter out immediately, a stock turbo will suck that thing together, guy posted a few piks a while back, while hilarious it is still a very poor choice in filters, Is your truck a 250 or a 350 kause there are other things that could contribute to your loose wheel have you checked your bearings and spindle nuts yet as well

Loose steering wheel or loose road wheel(s)?

+1 on the filter. If you can't afford to install a 6637 NOW, put the factory filter and air box top back on, or park the truck.

Loose steering wheel.. I can turn it 1/8ish of a turn either direction before I feel like a touch a wheel...

All steering parts are new minus the box and pump.. Pump is only 2 years old tho..


As far as the filter I will do just that!

Could be loose joints in the column/shaft, including the infamous rag joint where it goes into the box.

I'm at either the k&n or the spectre.. Until I can get the 6637... I called the local napa and they want $72.50 for it..
I'm going to run the k&n in the stock box for awhile and trash the spectre.

If everthing else mentioned checks out I believe there is an adjustment screw on the box for minor adjustment of "play". Maybe someone else can confirm, I remember reading about it in another thread.
