exhaust stack? Actually, that im NOT going to do for a few reasons. Need my tool box, need the most room possible since I have a short bed to begin with, need a tonneau cover and dont feel like drilling holes in the bed.

All you need is a 5 inch circle. I'm like you, I wasn't going to give up much! All I had to do was slide my aux tank over.

Viking, what type of air filter are you running? It looks like your turbo has been eating a little fine dust.

BHAF is just a generic term for Big Honking Air Filter right? Or is it actually a specific product?

AFE, UNI, K&N, etc. = far more serious than a BHAF

Has anyone here ever seen a velocity stack? They smoothe airflow into a carb or throttle body.
Anyone here see any resemblance with this "silencer ring"? To me, it looks like it may very well serve to guide air into the turbo compressor wheel. With it missing, it looks like the transition from the intake tube will be very rough with an entire area of dead space where the ring used to be.

Just my observation.

that is not what it's designed for... it is a silencer... it is not shaped like a velocity stack.

some HY combos have benefitted from less surge/bark by removing the sliencer, but you will not GAIN anything by installing one in a turbo that doesn't have one in it

I never said that is what it was designed for, but hey, thanks for putting me in my place.
I will throw away the velocity stack for my race car, it is obviously not what I thought it was.

sorry if I came off rude, it wasn't my intention

you'll note that the velocity stack on your race car has a much different shape than the shallow angle on the silencer ring... it's a curved slope designed to smooth the transition into the carb... and they do make bolt on and welded on velocity stack inlets for different turbos, but this was purely designed as a silencer.

I spend over an hour and could not get my snap ring out either, took some visegrips to the silencer ring. snap ring is still there come to think of it. Looks like you slipped pretty good with the screwdriver from the pictures. I put some paper towel bunched up in a ball infront of the turbo vanes however.
