The silencer ring is on the intake side of the turbo that keeps the whistle down. Take it out and the whistle is alot louder with an aftermarket intake. To take it out pull the intake tube off the turbo. Then use a couple of small flat head screwdrivers to pry the snap ring out. Then the silencer ring will come right out. Takes less than 5 minutes.
Hope this helps.

in there it says somthing about max boost being like 20 psi.

i thought guys are pushin like almost 35 psi on a stock hx35 turbo.....what gives?

what do they do to the waste gate to run that much boost?
adjustible boost elbow (HX's), or a J-hook (HY's) the elbow just cuts down the amount of boost getting to the waste gate, which makes it open at a higher boost level. and a boost fooler to keep from popping codes

hey i just took my ring out the other day i found it easier to use one flat head and what i call a "butter knife" its just a really thin blade that fit under the clip. the use the flat head to remove further goin around the whole clip untill you can grab it and hoax it out be very care full not to get any shavings in the turbo. Have fun you'll enjoy the outcome.

well I've tested mine with it in and with it out, and from seat of the pants experience on acceleration the turbo seems to spool up quicker with the silencer ring in place.

note: if you look at the picture from mopar1973 you will notice that the retaining ring ends are angled in opposite directions, one end will be much easier to get under. i used a broken off screwdriver with only about 1/8" left on the tip to get ander ring. it was a piece of cake
