Tymar and filter minder

I still have the filter minder on the 99 SD with the Tymar setup. I have reset it a couple times now and it will suck it thing down pretty quick. I dont think my filter has too many miles on it, but it might be dirty I guess. I thought that Tymar would flow enough that it would have to be restricted pretty bad to suck down that filter minder.

Re: Tymar and filter minder

I have never seen it move on any Tymar setup?? Maybe your minder is bad?

Re: Tymar and filter minder

The proper location of the filterminder is somewhere on the intake tube between the filter and the turbo.

Many people mistakenly install the filterminder on the end of the cone filter where the restriction is way less obviously because you are technically not between the filter and the turbo.

If you are sucking down your filterminder there is noticable power to be had by figuring out a filter set up that does not cause your minder to move at all. I had to get two filters on mine to accomplish this and it offered a huge improvement in my case. It felt like I dropped a turbine housing size it spooled up so much better, plus I gained boost up top and it smoked less.

I'm officially...Stroke-less.

Re: Tymar and filter minder

Have you tried blowing the filter out with some low air pressure? don't get too crazy or you could damage the paper element. What kind of conditions do you drive in?

Re: Tymar and filter minder

Have you tried throwing the minder in the trash? Or at least the spare parts bin. What a POS anyway. It's a spring. Get rid of it and fit a gauge if you are that worried about it.
