And after any amount of mileage it will dust your turbo. If you can't afford to do stuff the right way don't do it. It's a lot more to fix the stuff all the cheap stuff will break. Spectre has huge holes in it, I would never run one on my truck. You might as well just run no filter.

Agreed.

^ Do you know how check the compressor wheel? i.e. look to see if that compressor wheel looked like it was sharp on the edges? the way dusting work is like sandblasting, if you will, it wears the turbo down over time. Have you pulled anything deeper in the motor to see if you have damaged anything internal? I see through a spectre filter, tell me if my eye sight is good enough to look through it don't you think dirt and dust can get through?

Spectra filters are pos and never should be ran on a diesel. I've got proof.
