i absolutly love my new cummins but the only complaint i have is all the silencing crap on the intake. I allready opened up my exausht and still only hear a slight whistle, will an affter market intake wake it up? if so what brands. Plus quadzilla has a new "boost fooler" for a stock turbo, will that help?

I know that up to the 05 it is there. so take off the air inlet tube(from the turbo). look inside the turbo. you will see a cone shape "thing". It is held in by a snap ring in front of it. take a pocket screwdriver and remove the snap ring. take out the cone shaped "thing". put the air duct back on.

I have an 06 and I installed the S@B Air Intake and it woke the turbo up, it spools faster and is way louder, it is a lot of fun to hear it sing.

i pulled out that decibel ring, it did make a slight difference but could that effect my performance? i looks like it helps funnel the air into the turbo.

I am the same as everyone else. I put a BD air intake and could hear the spool up better. With a 4" silverline exaust it still was not enough. I installed a Borg Warner S300 superbee. It now sounds better with a higher, louder spool up noise.

there is an elimnator pipe available from Geno's Garage that replaces a factory plastic pipe between the intake box and the turbo that is full of silencer veins, they claim that it makes the much louder. I just orderd one this morning so I will let you know when i comes in. It comes in silver power coat so at the least it will put a little more color under the hood.

ha any one tried the boost fooler from quadzilla or jobe performance? i wonder if runnig wide open boost on a stock turbo would sound any better and also still be somewhat safe. and i think that true flow also sells some knid of pipe kit that replaces all the silencing parts. I'll be intreseted to hear how your kit works out for you

Every artical I've read says removing the silencing ring will not affect the performance at all. It's just there to tone down the whistle.

just install a high performance intake. makes a huge diffrence in beauty of turbo sound and the beauty of seeing numbers like 20 to 22 on the highway.

not even close. well it dont have an intake. but i have heard that they dont make much more turbo whistle on the newer dodges and chevys. but on my 6.0L i put that air filter on there and it made a huge diffrence in the turbo whistle.    
my wifes 6.0L all it has is a chip and it and the cummins sound about the same in turbo whistle. her 6.0L is just a little bit louder inside the cab and outside. but not much.
