^^^They are so wrong, even Diesel World knows there is improved airflow; and it's worth it!

I'm no aerodynamic expert, but judging by the before and after pics on SEANS Link it looks like there would be more turbulence with the ring removed. but that's just a thought

It took me about 5 min to take my ring out. I have before and after videos of what the removal sounded like and oh boy, what a difference!

the ring covers the MWE (Map Width Enhancement) which helps control compressor surge. it lowers your flow a bit but makes your compressor map much wider and street friendly.

the only thing the ring does is bounce sound waves to quiet down your turbo, it doesn't restrict HP in or out

turbo whistle sounds cool for all but 10 minutes, driving in a duramax on a 8hr trip, man it was painful. the damn truck is so quiet and all you hear is the vgt whistle the whole way, over the radio, over our conversations.

Obsessed with power is such an understatement!

I will point out They have been wrong before.. and apologized in the next issue. Not that i really care, The amount of horsepower/airflow would be insufficient to me, its more the sound, that makes you think you gained somthing.
