take a flat head pull the air box tube off the front of the turbo. look in the turbo youll see a c clip going around the turbo housing pull that c clip out and the ring will be loose just take it out and put the air box tube right back on. done

It may take a few tries to get the c clip out. On one end of the clip there is a place you can pry it out with a flat head. Once you get the clip out of the groove just take a pair of pliers and give a good yank! Other then that pretty straight forward!

Opened up the turbo housing and looked inside....and didnt quite match up the pictures to see where the ring was exactly. I dont know a lot about it yet, but I can follow directions fairly well!

It should look just like the picture. Get a little pick and screw driver and just work it out.

In that C-shaped groove, is there something in there that is taken out? When I took off the housing, Thats basically all I saw. Not a real clear view of it. For all I know, the ring may already be out lol! But my turbo isn't loud as i'v heard them soo...

Yeah, or the right single... Sounds like a F18 under taxing under the hood... And of course the bark when shifting...

If you put in a boost elbow, the hose just runs straight to the wastegate correct?

Yes, you replace your factory elbow with an adjustable one.

Hey I can see the silencer ring now, just how the hell do I get it out of there?: I took a flathead and tried to pry it out with no success! Could someone tell me how they got theirs out without breaking anything??

Go back to the original picture and you'll see there is only one real good direction to go from it due to the taper on the snap ring. If you go from the wrong direction (what I did before I noticed that taper), you'll struggle with it all night. Once I got that figured out, it popped right out......

when you get done with the ring, take the insullation off of the hood (if there is any) and it will add to the noise factor!

:headbang:
