Can the silencer ring be removed without removing exhaust manifold? What year did they start using these rings? Thanks

Nevermind, duh, I read "Related links" and they pretty much explained everything. Sounds like a 20 min. job.

just for future readers. the turbo silencer ring is located inside the holset turbo on all year cummins motors. the silencer ring is located just inside the turbo and is held in by a snap ring. remove the intake tube. use two screw drivers to pull the snap ring out. use one to lift the silencer ring up and the second to pop off the ring. easy job. just be careful not to puncture the compressor wheel.

From what I've read, removing the silencer ring doesn't add any more power, but just makes the turbo a lot louder. Anyone had any before/after experiences?

You can damage your turbo if youre not careful when removing the ring.  However, if you're patient and follow the instructions for removal then its not a problem.

And you won't cause any damage by having it removed, it just makes more turbo noise ..... which is a good thing.

Thanks man. So is the ring pretty noticable because I pulled the intake tube off and didn't see a snap ring or anything. I saw the wheel but thats about it.

to me it is not a bunch louder but it is a little louder.i say this so people dont think you are going to here huge screams coming out.now if you can get a hold of a scottys air breather now you will add even more inside the cab.cuz of the hole cut behind the glove box.
