Man I'm confused on this muffler delete and res delete. It looks like I don't have a cat but a resenator of some sort???? I wanna cut everything off but I don't want the truck to be to loud. I do want to here the turbo more, should I live the res. and just delete the muffler or do the whole thing ????????:popcorn:

This will have absolutley no effect on hearing the turbo better! In fact, it will drown it out. A CAI(Intake) is the only way to get to the noise of the turbo and hear it. Another fact, pay no attention to the Silencer ring removal. It also has no effect on better turbo noise IMO.
Open air intake combined with gutted torq tube will net impressive results on the turbo. Cost,,, Very little.
Reccommend Amsoil 4510 Nano filter.

"supposedly" it makes the turbo sing more. judge that for yourself however. my dad has the '02 with the muffler delete and its really loud. that kind of loud that doesn't sound good since its only a 3.5" pipe. really high pitched and airy...he's gettin a 4" real soon.

its located at the face of the turbo. remove the elbow from the front of the turbo and it will be the round, .9" wide reducer looking thing held in with a ring.

Leave the resonator on to help with drone.

I disagree about what you said about it having no effect on hearing the turbo. I took my muffler off and WOW is the turbo singing, especially from idle to about 1500 RPM. Mine dumps under the flatbed right now (Just experimenting with the sound).
