rather than going out and buying a freeze plug to put in the hole for the snorkel /silencer. i figured why not use something around the home. or better yet the truck. i took a hack saw and cut up the snorkel. took the end piece and fit it in. you'll note i left some meat on the end piece as a guard against the piece getting sucked in. i'm sure someone will chime in and tell me why it is better to use the freeze plug to plug the hole and i welcome the advice. if it's good advice i might just run out and get one. till then this seems to work but have not run the engine since doing it. will post results once i do. and i know it looks as though there is a hole going into the turbo but it is plugged it's an optical illusion.

I used a hunk of fat wood.

Not really, mine did not have the silencer on it.

Good idea.

Yep, it's a turbo muffler.

I'm assuming that after the air box upgrade the turbo must have been louder so this is the thing the great minds came up with.

Or, it's a place to dry out your stash.
