Just wanted to let everyone know that I removed the intake baffle, and you can defenitley hear the turbo whistle alot better. On a side note I smoked a "souped up" dodge neon last night and smoked him. He was pissed the look on his face was priceless.

The other day I blew the doors off of a "souped up" honda prelude, when we got to the next red light, and all the smoke cleared, the guy driving the prelude informed me that he was a diesel mechanic at one of the local dodge dealerships, he then said it was good to see a 6.7 blowin some smoke...

I'm thinking about modifying the stock air box to let a little more in. I was surprised that it didn't look that restrictive - at least the tubing down into the turbo.

I had a guy in a bmw driving crazy the other day. I say guy but he was probably 20. I pulled up next to him at the light and revved it up. It's hard to hear it's so quiet but he looked over and grinned. I put it in 4 hi and got the boost up in second, this dude was on that beamer hard, when the light turned green I dumped the clutch, got a little rubber :peelout and was gone. By the time I hit 4th he was probably 4 car lengths behind me. I love shocking these guys with my oil burner. Hahaha.:rof

There are no negative effects to removing the foam baffle.

No, it is inside the down tube connecting to the turbo.

what does the baffle look like is it just a peice of tubing? sorry to sound dumb just trying to figure this out
A piece of plastic tube with a cross section, and foam wrapped around the outside. If you do a search on here someone posted a pic of it and where it's at.

the plastic piece in the bottom tube right before the turbo...disconnect, and slide the inside piece out of the bottom.

it's REALLY EASY
