Ditch the stock air box and go with a DIY set up.

the stock filter is crap....it leaks A LOT and you will probably end up dusting your turbo if you run it long enough (but there are always exceptions....some folks run the stock box for 600K miles and have no issues).

A DIY setup is definately superior to the stock box...more air, less dirt, less dust, and it lets the turbo really sing w/all that air moving through
