Its a little ring inside the front side of your turbo that "dampens" the turbo whistle. Removing it creates more turbo whistle in the cab but no diffrence through the exhaust.

its a ring you give your girlfriend to make her shut up....


oh but its a piece of tin basically on the turbo.. its held in by a PITA snap ring. Get the snapring out and get the silencer ring. Or in my case... carefully with a pair of pliers... mine isn't going back in...

and it adds more of a "woosh" sound with an intake. noticable.. and some find it annoying.

Stick your head inside the engine compartment and get someone to stomp on it.

Does your air intake "Truflow xdi air intake" replace the factory intake tubing or just the box and filter? The reason I ask is because the straight part of the factory intake tube has a silencer in it that, when removed, will actually increase the turbo whistle more than the removal of the silencer ring.
