I just did it the other day it was fairly easy. Theres one end of the ring that has a groove in it thats the end u need to pry on. I got a long skiny screw flat blade screw driver and laid on my back under the truck and pryed it out from underneath it was really easy that way.
Took mine out...very easy. But I put it back in the next day.
When I put my CAI on...it definitely made it whistle more...and I liked it. I took the ring out and it whistled a little more but not much. But what I did notice was the whistle of the whistle!! :rof With the ring out, it sounded more raspy and rough I guess you could call it. With the ring in...to quote someone else, it was a more refined, crisper, cleaner whistle and I liked it much more. So mine was back in!!
But for coming out...just look at it and you will see the beveled out edge which makes it sweet and simple to grab with a small screwdriver. Good luck with it!!
took mine out , really liked it till I hooked up my 14,000 lb. fifth wheel that steady whistle got on my nerves after about 20 miles with no break from it I will be putting it back on before I tow it again.
Took out my silencer ring when i still had the stock airbox. Not much of a difference at all... just noticed a 1-2lb drop in boost. You dont actually get any more air to the compressor, it just swirls around in there. I think the noise you are noticing is your turbo becoming less efficient. I see everyone bragging about removing theirs, but you need to actually think about what your doing to your turbo. Needless to say i put my silencer ring back in after a test drive.
