foil delete is taking the foil off the drivers side intercooler tube it does absolutly nothing for performance the make your turbo sound a little louder in the cab and dp-tuner for your chip there is no comparison between dp and 6gun the dp is simply awsome

traded it for an 06 dodge sorry

The foil I would imagine is to reduce passenger compartment "noise"...



And, when cleaned up and polished, can look pretty good...

Though, yes, its looking pretty rough in these pics...

You know you wanna hit it, but, you're affraid of the outcome.
