You will need one if you ever have turbo issues like lots of people are having. I would imagine if you ever need your turbo cleaned due to 2262 code Chrysler is going to void your waranty as soon as they take the air box off.

I went through that stage, luckily I could put mine back on. You're gonna have to find a used turbo on ebay.

Ouch, used turbo, not cheap........Anyways, are you guys getting anything from pulling the silencer ring? I know it makes the turbo whistle louder, is that all?

On the 6.7 it can (did on mine) surge and cause the turbo to sound like the compressor wheel stalls at times. Surging is what it on there for to stop. You may even get a code if you remove it!:w:

Look in the classifieds. I think mattpopp is or has a friend selling used 6.7 turbos. They were takeoffs before the dealers started "cleaning" them. Maybe get just a ring from him.

I think just about anyone you ask on here will tell you that taking the silencer ring off your turbo does absolutely nothing for performance, and in my opinion after closely observing the stock Holset from a 5.9 looks like the removal could actually hinder performance. With the ring on it kind of funnels the air into the turbo with it off there are slots milled around the sides of the intake path, which looked like to me, could cause turbulence and maybe less efficient air flow into the turbo. Just my opinion though.
