We got our tax return back from Uncle Sam so I celebrated my doing the DIY mod today!
Got a 3" piece of 4" exhaust pipe, the guy at the muffler shop cut it for me and just gave it to me at no charge after I told him what I was going to do. Got the filter at NAPA for about $45.00.
It took about 45 minutes. I de-burred the pipe then scrubbed it with steel wool and washed it real good to get rid of any metal pieces, then I took off the air tube and cleaned out in front of the turbo, there was some old oil cruded up in there, not much but I figured I may as well clean it out.
Took the Beast for a quick drive, more turbo sound, can hear it winding up a bit more and can also hear something change when the RPMs change with shifting, must be the blades spinning?
Sounds good, drove great, can't wait to try it on a longer drive tomorrow.
Pretty easy mod, really.
Questions - whats the tube that comes up in front of the turbo inside the airway and the should I put sometihng under the filter to keep it from getting crud thrown up on it? Seems that it's pretty open to the road in there now.
Thanks Maintain's GREAT!! photos and write up on this!
