Foil Delete 7.3

I was looking at the 7.3 mod area on foil delete. About to install a wheel on the turbo along with other mods and since these will be off????

What, if any, benefit does this give in performance, besides aesthetics?

Foil is too keep under hood "engine heat" out of cooled air charge???

the foil delete gives no performance gains if anything it heats up the air more from engine heat ,which to me trying to keep it cool is what the intercooler and wrapped tube is trying to do , so the only reason to do it , is to hear the turbo more inside the cab , makes no difference except for more noise in the cab, louder whistle i think, i have kept mine wrapped myself

Yeah it made a pretty good difference i would say. Way louder when your pulling the hills around 10-15 lbs of boost. I didnt notice a difference in my egts but i dont think it would make to big of a difference to see it?

No difference in EGTs on my truck either, but the turbo whistle is definitely louder.

Right. that would be a good test to put a probe in the tube and do a before and after to so how much of a temp difference there is. Just for $hits and giggles

lot of hassle , but would be a good test, it just seems to me that the trick to a diesel is to get the most air in the cylinder and as cool of air as possible to get the most power , the intercooler tube thats covered in foil runs right next to the drivers side exhaust manifold , so it seems to me that it would hurt the temps going into the intercooler so the temp would be slightly higher coming out of the intercooler goin into the engine , may not be much difference , it just makes since that it cant help either
